I installed an update of drm-legacy-kmod and now at least
/dev/dri/card0 is created and the video error message has gone.

However, I still can't start the X server. The only error
message which is left in Xorg.0.log is this

    [  2333.719] (EE) synaptics: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Kernel bug: min == max on ABS_X/Y

But I suppose this is not the reason? I tried to plug in a
mouse just to bypasss the need for the toucpad but I still
can't start the server?

There are some modular configuration files under xorg.conf.d/
that I did not create


Should I remove them?
