dropline gnome is on fallback mode, how to go back to normal?
 
Hello all,

The topic pretty much states my problem. I tried to install AMD proprietary video driver and when I started X after running "# aticonfig --initial -f".

I uninstalled the driver, restored the original xorg.conf (blank) and Gnome is still messed up! How to solve it?

Thanks in advance,
gtludwig

As before, pastebin your full Xorg log file.

Well,
There are two xorg.conf-like files on /etc/X11.

The one name xorg.conf is an one-line file:
# NOXORGCONFEXISTED: No X.org configuration file existed when this backup was created.

The one named xorg.conf-vesa I pastebin here:

I asked for the Xorg log file.

Proprietary driver overwrites some files related to other packages, not sure exactly which ones. Try to reinstall xorg-server & mesa.

oops... I guess I misunderstood. Here is the Xorg.0.log: http://pastebin.com/ipPSk48c

That did the trick! I issued the commands:
# slackpkg reinstall xorg-server
# slackpkg reinstall mesa

And restarted X. All is OK now!
Thank you!
