Oops, we're talking about a driver issue! This is known problem of the
NVIDIA driver with X.Org > 7.1 (Bug #197090).

BTW, I've documented a workaround in my HOWTO

I have 2 problems with Xorg, is that kdm fails. I must use startx in console.
The logs are:

Module Loader present
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
(++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Sat Aug 5 23:36:23 2006
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Given color depth (1) is not supported
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

The other problem, is with the Nvidia driver, installed witht
--x-module-path=/usr/lib/xorg/modules/ and in the xorg.conf in driver
section Option "RenderAccel" "no", I can't see any text in any qt
application. With the nv driver I have'nt this problem.

The last problem was with the smart upgrade tool, it would to
downgrade all the Xorg packages. I mean that I need to add the new
repo for the Xorg packages.
