Slackpkg upgrade to xorg 1.4.2 and ATI drivers
I generally use slackpkg to keep up to date with the changelogs. I know there is another thread regarding this topic, but that thread is primarily dealing with the effects of upgrading on Nvidia drivers. My laptop has ATI and I have the proprietory drivers installed. According to a post by Alien Bob in that thread, this upgrade is going to affect ATI drivers as well.
My question is simply this: since this upgrade is only security related (no change in xorg performance), and I use this laptop for personal use only, is there any good reason to upgrade? I have my graphics just how I like them and don't really want to create an unecessary problem for myself.
If anyone has done the upgrade with ATI drivers, I would love to hear your experience to see what will have to do to keep things as I have them. The "fix" seems to be re-installing the drivers, but I would just like to head off anything unexpected.
Thanks for any replies.
