should start with a very minimal xorg.conf. I am not quite sure why you
need the NoInt10 and DefaultConnectorTable options.
Long story short: 184.108.40.2062 fixed the problems with modules not loading
because of undefined symbols, but the end result is no better than what
I reported for the earlier 1.7.0 version. The mouse cursor is normal
brightness, but the display is otherwise extremely dim:
How about trying: xrandr --output <your output device> --gamma 1:1:1
where <your output device> is probably DVI-0.
I do recall seeing such symptoms myself maybe a year go when I was
playing around with the radeon and radeonhd drivers. I can't remember
what the explanation was though it is definitely fixed for me now. The
colour palette code in the radeon driver appeared to me quite a mess at
the time I looked through it.
