I installed Debian Testing on an Asus TP210S (ISO file downloaded from https://ftp.acc.umu.se/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/cd-including-firmware/buster_di_alpha4+nonfree/amd64/iso-cd/, not the "edu" one), but
X won't start.
Xorg.0.log from that laptop: https://pastebin.com/u8nJc5pr.
I installed the packages
firmware-misc-nonfree but it still doesn't start
When I query
lsmod|grep -i vga nothing is returned. The package
xserver-xorg-video-intel is installed; I report on this because the last time I had this problem on another laptop, it was solved by installing this package.
inxi -Gx I found out that the driver loaded is modsetting, and it marks
vesa as unloaded; when trying to load
vesa I get the error
FATAL: Module vesa not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.0-4-amd64/; when I try loading
fbdev no error is produced but then I run
lsmod|grep fbdev and nothing appears.
Here's the output of
lsmod|grep -i video:
uvcvideo 118784 0 videobuf2_vmalloc 16384 1 uvcvideo videobuf2_memops 16384 1 videobuf2_vmalloc videobuf2_v4l2 28672 1 uvcvideo videobuf2_common 53248 2 videobuf2_v4l2,uvcvideo videodev 212992 3 videobuf2_v4l2,uvcvideo,videobuf2_common media 45056 2 videodev,uvcvideo usbcore 290816 4 xhci_hcd,uvcvideo,btusb,xhci_pci video 45056 2 asus_wmi,i915
Two other things:
- Whenever I start the laptop, one of the first messages on screen is "Resuming from hibernation", which is quite odd because I just installed the system and haven't enabled hibernation (and I'm not planning on doing it).
- If left to itself, after about 5 minutes without a login, the laptop will automatically shutdown. Any suggestions? I really want to install Testing on this one, specifically because of the more updated version of TeXLive, and because I bought this laptop to use at the office.
