Slackware 14, Intel Integrated Graphics on Atom D2700, (EE) Screen(s) found, none have a usable conf
 
I'm having the very same issue with my Intel Integrated Graphics on my Atom D2700 on a new install of Slackware 14; xfce-4 worked 100% on 13.37. When I 'startx' I get an error that says:

(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

I loaded the new intel driver in /testing and 'startx' just locks up my box with a black screen.

I tried disabling 'dri' with the following override, but the Xorg log says that it will start up anyway even though the default is to disable it.

Code:

Section "Module"
  Disable "dri"
EndSection

Hi SiegeX,
I would doubt we're suffering the SAME issue (but who am I to know for sure? LOL).
Not only are our CPU / GPU systems completely different, the symptoms are also different.
You mention that on the 'vanilla' install you got the 'EE screens found...'
My 'guess' is that you copied across /etc/X11/xorg.conf (or one of the closely related X config files) from a prior install?

BTW, the method I used to 'disable' DRI is completely different to yours...
I created the following content in a new file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/disableDRI.conf)
Code:

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Intel Graphics"
        Driver          "intel"
#      Option          "AccelMethod"  "SNA"
#      Option          "Shadow"        "False"
        Option          "DRI"          "False"
EndSection

With the 'vanilla' install, I also had to add in the 'Shadow' option to make it 'stable'.
With the drivers from /testing, I was able to comment out the Shadow option, and I elected to enable SNA (purely to see if it made a huge difference... Without DRI, the switch to SNA wasn't a 'quantum leap')
