XFree upgrade gone wrong...


Hello all

I recently tried to upgrade XFree to 4.3.0 and had a few probs...

Firstly I use SuSE 8.1 with KDE3.1 and was also installing an Nvidia driver.

I'm not unfamiliar with Unix commands but I do not know them all or in full detail (who does?!) but I am new to linux/unix.

I obtained the SuSE rpms for XFree and for the nvidia driver and also sax2
While installing the first rpms (XFree) I had to run SuSEconfig after as stated in the readme. It stopped responding every time it got to the line
'creating cache files for Xft'

I continued anyway with the rest. Driver went fine but sax2 failed dependencies so i guess stupidly I forced it (i was missing fvwm2)

Now X doesn't start and I'm not entirely sure where it's wrong.

Here is the first section of my .xsession-errors file

Thanks

The key solution is to get these latest packages:

freetype2-2.1.3-27
qt3-3.1.1-52
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191
sax2-4.7-299

Don't forget to add
Xcursor.theme: whiteglass
in your .Xdefaults



Have a lot of fun :-)
