My dino-IBM RAID xServer runs CentOS 6.x with KDE and has two hardware video options. The built-in AMD/ATI card and a PCI NVIDIA card as well.
I updated two weeks ago and the X11 update borked my KDE.
1) What yum update did:
- X11 updated to `org-x11-server-Xorg-1.17.4`
- removed `xorg-x11--glamor` and `xorg-x11-drv-modesetting`.
2) My hardware is VGA:
$ lspci -m | grep -e VGA
01:00.0 "VGA compatible controller" "NVIDIA Corporation" "G73 [GeForce 7600 GS]" -ra2 "BFG Tech" "Device 21c3"
05:01.0 "VGA compatible controller" "Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]" "Rage XL PCI" -r27 "IBM" "eServer xSeries server mainboard"
3) What happens.
As a server I usually boot to runlevel 3 and use X11 when I need to use some feature or whatever that is done easier in graphical environment. When use `$ startx` screen goes black and freezes up the controls. I'm guessing something about my hardware isn't being supported?
What's the broad take on this event (save for buy something new)?
