Thanks Len,

In case I somehow messed up, I've purged xorg and am reinstalling
(downloading now).  No man page for dexconf although its there at
/usr/bin/dexconf and I see that the man page belongs to x11-common which
is still installed.

Re the nv driver: I don't know.  I'll try to look into this.  If its
just too-new hardware, I can wait.  While I would like higher
res/refresh, I can live with less as long as I can run a web browser.

Any idea on the 404 error?  How do I follow discussion of a particular
bug (e.g. 381612)?  How could I have found dexconf on my own?
