I am also having trouble running X when i upgraded to X 6.8.1

not really having troubles starting, I Have troubles with gl acceleration (mainly the fglrx ati driver) everytime i use sth that uses fglrx, the system freezes, or x11 kicks me back out to the login screen...
here is what i get in syslog...

Code:
Nov 22 23:38:59 DarkAngel kdm[3739]: X server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly
Nov 22 23:39:00 DarkAngel kernel: mtrr: 0xd8000000,0x8000000 overlaps existing 0xd8000000,0x100000
Nov 22 23:39:00 DarkAngel kernel: [fglrx:firegl_addmap] *ERROR* mtrr allocation failed (-22)
Nov 22 23:39:00 DarkAngel kernel: mtrr: 0xd8000000,0x400000 overlaps existing 0xd8000000,0x100000

did you remember to install libidn? it's required by X.org 6.8.x... won't be included in a pkgupgrade you have to installpkg it, personally I use slapt-get for maintaining my current packages

also: cythrawll,
X.org 6.8.1 and ATI's fglrx driver are incompatible, you must use X.org 6.7 if you wish to use the fglrx driver

I think u can use upgradepkg to rollback.

just to be sure do:
Code:
upgradepkg xorg-6.8.1*%xorg-6.7*
Of course finish package names where I placed *.

good question, and the answer is... I dunno...
after tinkering around and finding that nothing I did could make the fglrx drivers work, I used pkgtool to remove the packages and re-installed the X packages from my slack 10 cd (no X running, of course )

Compaq s5000 here.

same stuff on mine. i had to rerun xorgconfig from the console, then vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf and do a fresh hack of the new file, just as if you and just completed a brand new OS install.
double check your /etc/inittab, and reboot.
hope it works. i about went crazy until i hit on it.
-O.
