I had to reinstall slack just recently due to slack-get not working as it should (everything it upgraded, it killed in the process :/) and now I can't get X to work properly.
I have the nVidia drivers installed now, and edited the XF86Config file so the nVidia drivers would work.
X Also wouldn't work right before doing this.
What happens is I login, I type startx. I see the usual nVidia logo pop-up and then I see gnome loading. When it's done and I can see the desktop, I'm unable to use either my mouse or keyboard. I can't ctrl+alt+backspace out or anything. :/
One time I was able to hit ctrl+alt+F2 before X loaded and I then went over to tty1 and saw this message sitting there.

I've ran xf86config a few times and made sure to use the right options.
keyboard is a US keyboard, and the mouse uses USB, so I chose "Auto," since no USB fields were there. Think I also tried PS/2 one time but with no luck..
