Xorg fails to start with "(EE) [drm] failed to open device."
How to make it work?

I'm using gNewSense (it's a Debian-based distro).

Cards: nVidia GT216 [GeForce GT 330M] (rev a2) and Intel HD.
Installed packages: "xserver-xorg-video-nouveau" and

/var/log/Xorg.0.log: http://pastebin.com/SYBHh7CZ
dmesg: http://pastebin.com/X7rp3Amc

"modprobe nouveau" outputs nothing, but there is no nouveau module in
the output of "lsmod."
