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.

Section "Module"
  Disable "dri"

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