Default 4.7 Install on MacBookPro (Core i7): Nvidia GT 330M

The Broadcom chipset for the pre-installed wireless card wasn't supported, but I purchased an external rum(0) usb stick (Hawking HWUG1), and wireless is now working great.

Now, on to getting X to work properly. See below for the relevant part of the dmesg:

> dmesg
vga1 at pci1 dev 0 functkion 0 vendor "NVIDIA", unknown product 0x0a29 rev 0xa2
wsdisplay0 at vga1 mux 1: console (80x25, vt100 emulation)
wsdisplay0: screen 1-5 added (80x25, vt100 emulation)
azalia0 at pci1 dev 0 function 1 vendor "NVIDIA", unknown product 0x0be2 rev 0xa1: apic 2 int 16 (irq 11)
azalia0: no supported codecs
azalia0: initialization failure, detaching
NVIDIA is mostly unsupported (and infamously unhelpful: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...ch/049749.html), and trying to find out if there is any way I can get X to boot up. When running configure on X, I noticed that it does list a slew of NVIDIA drivers, but of course, mine is not listed:

> X -configure
> startx
> cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(II) NV: driver for NVIDIA chipsets:  RIVA 128, GeForce DDR, GeForce MX 460... etc, etc, etc.
(II) VESA:  driver for VESA chipsets: vesa
(I) Primary Device is:  PCI 01@00:00:0
(WW) NV:  Ignoring unsupported device 0x10de0a29 at 01@00:00:0
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found
Is there any where I can go from here? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm hoping to get X up so I can install a WM. Thanks!
