X.org and WDM problem


Hello,

I did a dist-upgrade in Debian recently, with this xfree86 got upgraded to xorg. The problem I have since this upgrade is that WDM no longer is working, everytime I try to start WDM I see my screen blinking twice than nothing really happens. I have tried XDM and that works good, no problems whatsoever. Anyone here who has any idea what might be the problem here ? This Doesn't make any sence to me to be honest.

I tried Entrance login manager and have the same problem with that, only thing with Entrance is that it keeps blinking and doesn't stop.

Grts...

Have you checked the xorg.conf to see if it has correctly detected your graphics card + monitor setup? What does the console say if you manually try to load the x server? Also, try
Code:
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
to run through reconfiguring the x server for you.

i have tried dpkg-reconfigure, but it didn't help much. i will try to start X by using startx with wdm as default login manager and paste the info here. will paste it here when i have done so.

I did an update with apt-get which also updated xserver-xorg ofcourse, after that now even XDM isn't working. This is the output that I get when using 'startx'
