Here is Xorg.0.log. The setup for my graphics card I got from here.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Thanks, and best Regards,

Code:
(EE) open /dev/dri/card0: No such file or directory


Yes, fix your kernel.

Right. I enabled exactly the options from the wiki, including DRI, but still /dev/dri/card0 is missing.
