with some drivers/installation, booting a media director may lead to modifying its xorg.conf file. that happened with lmce 7.10 DVD installation and an md with Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller and led to using the vesa drivers
one solution is:

  1. log (ssh) in the media director. to do so:
    1. get the media director's ip (md_IP)in webadmin->wizard->devices->media director. you just get its name and you have a field named 'IP' which gives you the required ip. (something like 192.168.80.X, where X is a number).
    2. log yourself as root on the core: sudo bash, enter password
    3. once you got ot, just type ssh <md_IP>
  2. follow prevent lmce from changing xorg (basically, insert a new line with exit 0 on 2nd line of /usr/pluto/bin/Xconfigure.sh ). to edit you can use vi:
    1. vi /usr/pluto/bin/Xconfigure.sh to open the file
    2. place the cursor on the beginning of line 2, press'i' , and add 'exit 0', enter, to add the line
    3. press ':x', enter.to save the file
  3. run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg to generate a clean new xorg.conf. follow instructions. if you don't know, keep default values
  4. reboot the md: reboot
