I have installed Debian Wheezy today.

when i boot Debian wheezy when splash logo about to open, the screen blanks and system hangs, but Debian stable was booted without errors, but

I changed init parameter to init=/bin/sh, Then mount -o remount,rw /

its all ok, but when i try to start x server with this command:


The screen is blank and system locked.

There isn't a /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.failsafe

What i tried so far:

copied to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, when i start Xorg it says no screens found, when i reboot without touching init= command, the screen is still hang and blank at bootup logo.

Tried Xorg -configure, generated xorg.conf but not worked.

What i can do? P.S. i have readon 2600 HD pro

xorgsetup # menu wizard for easy xorg config

startx # start X

dmesg | tail -n 30 # if start x fail, show dmesg

grep \(EE\) /var/log/Xorg.0.log # xorg log, errors should be here

Getting xorgsetup and Xorgsetup not found error – Burak Tamtürk Aug 8 '12 at 14:01
from google: dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg or X -configure instead of xorgsetup. I am not familiar with Debian. – okobaka Aug 8 '12 at 14:41

Please post the output of the following command:

grep -A3 -B3 "(EE)" /var/log/Xorg.0.log

That's a way to get the lines containing (EE), which are important as they indicate errors. The command will also include 3 lines before and after each error, just to get a little bit more context.
