I run on Intel (go to to find your driver), this is what I usually have to do as soon as something in the X-system-chain is updated (then gdm/kdm or whatever doesn't run, don't panic!): Go to,
download (or find it already somewhere local, better if you have no browser) and and run

# sh

when a lot of things will be done and configured, probably the driver is re-compiled, etc., but fully automatic, no problem! When finished, restart your display manager, all back in order!
