WooHoo did it again!!!!

The other day I did an apt-get dist-upgrade on Lenny/testing and X stoped working with the intel driver. Had to use 'vesa' and it s**ked. This site rocks, I rarely have to post a question. Just do a search and 99.9% of the time the answer is found. Not only that but google brings me right back here 9 out of 10 times. Sorry getting off the subject. Because of Christmas and New Years I have not had much time to search. Plus I have Ubuntu installed and that was working fine. So today I had some time and did a search for 'glx intel xserver' one of the threads said to use dexconf to create a new xorg.conf file so I tryed it and it worked. Kool Dude!!!

let me give credit were credit is due.

This thread:

farslayer gave the advice.

Many thanks to everyone on this board.

Happy New Years to every one.
