Detection of graphics card fails after update on Lenovo t61p

Bug Description

Running yesterdays updates (2008/05/29 appr 22:00 CET ) gave some errors on packages. Doing some manual cleanup finally got me my system back but my graphics card is no longer detected. I did a clean install 8.04 this morning and ran the proposed updates immediately. Everything finishes fine now, but the graphics are still undetected, dropping me into VESA.

The machine is an Lenovo t61p with nvidia 570m. This is (was) supported by a propriety driver. I noticed a kernel update in the updates yesterday, but now the machine is on 2.6.24-16-generic again, where my other machine is on 2.6.24.17-generic. This puzzles me.

Due to limited time, I haven't done any further investigation. I may be able to do some today.

Regards,

Paul Tap

I haven't been able to reproduce this error. The machine has been reinstalled and works fine now. Some issues with the docking station, but that's for another report. Please close this one.

Hi paul-tap,

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? (ISOs are available from cdimage.ubuntu.com)

If it remains an issue, could you also attach a new /var/log/Xorg.0.log?
Thanks in advance.

The output of lspci -vvnn would also be worth having.

I've migrated to 8.10 already and detection etc. goes fine there.
Support for the T61p has improved in all areas. For me it's ok to close
this bug

Actually I never got notified that "you" were waiting for an update from
my side. Sorry about that. I somehow expected some automated emails.

Kind regards,

Paul Tap
