I've noticed that gallium3d support isn't enabled. After some testing I've seen that by enabling it are avoided some little issues such as the black
screen on logout. Will mesa broke up by enabling gallium3d?
Some issues are fixed by enabling it, and some more issues are created. In our tests, it "just works" for more people without the radeon and/or r300 gallium stuff enabled right now.

Thanks for the answer, as you say it works, I noticed that gallium isn't enabled only because I checked the slackbuild and not for issues.

The latest intel driver(xf86-video-intel-2.14.0-x86_64-1) is _much more_ slower than the previous one. Causing the whole X pause when showing window thumbnails. I don't know why yet... ;(
