Re: Xorg upgrade: 6.9.x to 7.0.x

With the same deb's exept xserver-xorg  7.0.20 total lock in my UP1100
alpha with  ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] AGP controller.

And I tested never version of ati/radeon driver and still the machine
locks up with some white blinking lines on the display.

Is there an easy way to downgrade to the Xorg from the stable distro.
I guess not :)

BTW, all the evidence I have so far suggests xorg 7.0 is completely broken

already doesn't work, I just would suggest not expecting too many miracles
from 7.0 just yet.

Here's one success story.  I just upgraded a couple of days ago, and
everything (include X) is still running fine...  : )

Hardware & XOrg Packages:

VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 3D Rage Pro 215GP (rev 5c)

ii  xserver-xorg			7.0.18	the X.Org X server
ii  xserver-xorg-core		1.0.2-8	X.Org X server -- core server
