Thank you very much,
the vesa driver doesn't enable what I need. I don't need "nouveau"
either. I wish to get xorg-video-nv, but the available version conflicts
with the current installed X.
I suspect the proprietary nvidea driver not to build, when using the
current real-time patch.
But perhaps I should try to solve this issue and not install Debian
testing, since this until now, seems to be the only conflict.
