We just close it, deletion is for very bad things.
Slackware is a lot more optimistic with its framebuffering modes then the other distros. This is funny, as its pessimistic about everything else (some people would call that conservative.)
The i810 doesn't handle framebuffering all that well, you have to play it a little paranoid. The one I had around I think I had in standard VGA mode, and unless you're a big fan of ttys, who cares really.
X-windows is a different story, Slackware is the only distro out there that doesn't configure it for you, that's your problem. So... you have an /etc/X11/XF86Config file that is barebones... and built on the tada... vesa framebuffering driver, instead of the i810 driver. Back to buggy framebuffering.
Run the test it tells you, and then copy over the /etc/X11/XF86Config file with that test file in /root/
It would have been easiest to save the XF86Config file from a previous install, and recycle it. Knoppix has about the best auto-configurator around, so you may just want to boot that and copy it to the drive, boot to slack and then copy it into /etc/X11. Of course, that's cheating, but it works.
