Bug#659378: the nouveau driver does not work at all with my machine (configurations work)
Some more information, both the xorg.conf I attached and the one
generated by Xorg (without any changes) work, except that the one I
attached starts the Xserver in a very low resolution. The situation is
the same under Xen, i.e. it works.
