This was due to an attempt to install the drivers with the sgfxi script! The Noveau modules couldn't be removed so they were blacklisted.
I'm giving up. If almost everything will go wrong then it's not worth it.
What I did wrong was undergo this experiment. It needs more work, imho, because the install is routine (there's free noveau drivers in the kernel now and the manual install has certain steps which I am sure the script is doing).
Anyway, the other thing I did wrong was the grub update which I needed to do for the grub I installed to the MBR. I installed Mint's grub in the root partition. So, my Debian install's grub was doing the booting and it wasn't updated. You can laugh because the joke's on me. But, I think the scripts are too much and I had a problem with them before when I tried to use them to install Nvidia drivers. No support for it either.
