Wow! This morning was a ride. I went o bed while this massive update was being done. Got up this morning and rebooted. Good thing I have another Slackware install to fall back on whilst I research problems.

Thanks to all of you that posted - both the problems and solutions. I was up and running in seconds.

Smooth as silk for me. Just needed to reinstall the nVidia proprietary driver to get KDE up.

Is it my imagination, or just the red wine I drank while waiting for the update to complete, that LQ looks a little different in Firefox with the new font packages? HIC.

My thanks to Pat and the team.

I've been using the generic Radeon driver without any problems, until now. Looks like it will be winblows until I figure out the problem.
Any resolution for this issue? I got the same.

just guessing, does disabling compositing helps?

not sure if it applies, but remember also to remove the obsoleted xf86-video-radeonhd, as Robby suggests in the link above.

Nah, I didn't drink any red wine and I can tell a big difference. Just trying to determine if I like the difference or not.

Unfo, disabling the compositing helped me just to start X with vesa driver.
Didn't know xf86-video-radeonhd is obsolete, the ChangeLog doesn't say anything.
Anyway, thanks for the ideas but neither of the above helped me.

x blew up on me. I rebooted into init3, ran startx, and it tells me taht the server has a video driver abi version that this driver does not officially support. Then I get a fatal error, no screens found. I tried reinstalling the Nvidia drivers from Slackbuilds.org... no good. Help!

Are you running at least a 2.6.35 kernel? I know I don't upgrade kernels real often, and when I first used Robby's new xorg packages I had to first update the kernel. The nvidia driver I am using is 256.52. I just run the script, not the slackbuild version.

Yes, I'm running the .35 kernel. But I can't get a graphical login screen with the nv drivers, either. I ran rmmod to ditch the nvidia module, changed xorg to the nv drivers, and I got a little white box at the top of my screen with the following:

Code:
kstartupconfig4 does not exist or fails. The error code is 127. Check your installation.
something is seriously wrong.

This wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that I' using Eric's kde 4.5.3 packages... would it?

Kiroff,

Looks like we have the same card and the same problem.

I disabled compositing, but it didn't make a bit of difference.

Up until last night, I have always downloaded the 'current' files to my hard drive and installed them from there. Last night I used slackpkg to do the upgrade so my 'current' files, prior to last night, were untouched.
So, I used upgradepkg to re-install the 'x' files from my 'current' 'x' directory and at least now I can use Xfce. I haven't tried KDE, yet.

I'll wait a few more days before trying to install last nights upgrades, again.
Cheers!

Did a bit more google searching, was I supposed to allow it to upgrade aaa_elflibs? I'd just do it, but my google searching also suggested that it might be a bad idea to upgrade that package after upgrading the other ones. Someone please advise...
