Acer Aspire One ZA3 and Slackware 14.0


I have an Acer Aspire One ZA3, it is a little over three years old. I was struggling to get xorg working on the unit with Slackware 14.0. For a time I ran Debian on the unit. I got it working yesterday.
The link below describes my issue and the fix. To be able to launch x windows from run level 3 I run this command first.

# rmmod poulsbo psb_gfx

Then I run startx.

Wouldn't this be a good item for the SlackDoc's for specific hardware?
