Hi all, I need to rebuild my X server, in an attempt to resolve the issue I'm experiencing in this thread
I'm not new to installing software from source, but I've never had to update something as integral as the X server. How do I go about doing this without screwing my system up? Do I need to first remove the copy that slackpkg knows about? What steps can I take to ensure that reverting back to slackpkg's copy if needed is simple and reliable?
This is on my work laptop, so I really need to get it back into a working state as quickly as possible.
Edit: Actually, is there a way to unpackage the Xorg package included in Slackware, modify it, then repackage it and install with installpkg? I think that would be the easiest and safest option, if it's possible.
