Another Radeon saga...
After upgrading the drivers for my 9200se to v.3.11, I, Bertrum, noticed with much dismay that the game Rune's textures flickered when Dynamic Lighting was turned on...
Finally after much searching and many hardships, I located the drivers called 3.9 and installed those. But alas, the flickering continued unabashedly and with much malice. Cursing myself and my future grave for my stupidity, I realised that the flickering must have been caused by that fiendish X.Org (because I only upgraded my drivers after upgrading Slackware to v.10). So, with my heart in my stomach and keyboard in hand I elected to go back to XFree86 v.4.3 from Slack 9.1...
But alas again! That clever ploy of downgrading backfired on me and now that cantankerous old XFree won't even start with some odd errors about not finding libraries (Xinerama.so.1). Bah! I don't even use Xinerama! That old bastard must be going insane in his old age! (Or I seriously missed something when installing XFree...)
Summary for the easily bored/irritated:
I removepkged X.Org by doing removepkg *.tgz in slackware/x/ on the slack 10 cd 1, then did installpkg *.tgz in the slackware/x/ directory of the Slack 9.1 cd 1 to stop the abominable flickering in Rune but now X won't start with strange missing libraries complaints. Did I miss something in the installation? Are their more files to be installed besides just X? Help!
