Maybe you know something i don't, it's not  xorg.conf.vesa,
it is simply  xorg.conf.

As indicated ensure the  xorg.conf  file indicates the driver you are using (think you indicated intel),
and ensure the driver is loaded at boot.

That's not what was meant by the comment.

You need to create a file named /etc/X11/xorg.conf and edit it to suit your hardware and what you require.

I believe you are using tc-4.x - if I remember correctly, this means you will need to create a full xorg..conf rather than just a "snippet" containing details of what you want to change.

Essentially, your xorg.conf needs to contain something like this (as well as the other standard sections):
Code: [Select]
Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Device        "Intel GM45"
    Monitor        "Whatever"
    DefaultDepth    16
    SubSection "Display"
        Depth        16
        Modes      "800x600_75.00"
    EndSubSection
EndSection

You will no doubt need to proceed on a trial and error basis - modify xorg.conf, exit to the prompt, startx, check Xorg.0.log and repeat...
