messed up my X-windows in Etch
Following a recent upgrade of my Etch box I have mucked up my X. I no
longer get the graphical log-on, but after logging in startx does bring
get me into my fluxbox desktop. In the past xdebconfigurator followed by
dexconf solved all my problems, so I tried that. Unfortunately,
xdebconfigurator crashed X-windows (ie the monitor went black,
displaying only the message that no signal was being received). So then
I dried dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg. I bumbled my way through that,
after which I couldn't get into X at all.
I retried the xdebconfigurator/deconf, and this time it worked, but the
screen looks a little wonky (resolution seems off somehow, and maximized
windows spill over the edge of the screen).
So I know I've broken something, but I don't know what. I'd be happy to
reinstall X if that will solve the problem, but how to do so? I tried
with aptitude but succeeded only in reinstalling the metapackage itself,
without all of its dependencies.
If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be fantastic!
