To do this you have to create a directory "mkdir /etc/" then add this line to your /etc/ file...

include /etc/*.conf
reboot and everything now works.
Thank you!!

Worked. Finally.
When I added
include /etc/*.conf
at the end of the file GUI was still broken, but if I entered the line as first then I got GUI back.

I knew that without VB Additions Slackware would work in VM. Did not think that may be considered as working system also because of resolution constrains without VB Additions.
I have old laptop with 32GB RAM and screen in VM at 1900x1020. I assumed that for VM this is more or less normal for laptop so running without guest additions was kind of waste (for me).

Same as above.
But everything is fine after revert mesa to 18.0.x

some details:
When run xorg directly, it receive sigsegv and leave console blank
check with strace/gdb/valgrind, only got a callstrack list,
no idea how to dig more info...
Already rebuild mesa with debug info, but nothing changed/found.
Any suggestion is welcome

btw: Arch x86_64 is ok...
