Problem upgrading to Xfree 4.2.0
I upgraded to slack 8.1 about a month ago, and things have been great, for the most part.
The only problem is with X. I fdisked and did a clean install. I ran xf86config and entered the exact same variables that I did under 8.0 and the older version of Xfree. Upon typing "startx," the machine freezes solid. There are no clues that I can find anywhere in /var/logs that might tell me what is going on. I'm now using the x packages from 8.0 with 8.1 with no problem. My only worry now is that I won't be able to do this if/when I upgrade to 9.0 due to likely incompatibilities. My card is a generic trident TGUI9680.
