help - 1.3 upgrade killed XFree86
Yesterday I used the dselect/ftp method to upgrade my machine from
Debian Linux 1.2 to
1.3. The system is now running 1.3, but X doesn't work anymore.
Normally I have xdm starting at boot time; now the screen never comes up
but the relays inside the monitor click about every second and there is
a flash on the screen. I assumed something changed in the S3 driver (I
am using Stealth64/DRAM). I disabled xdm at startup and did a
"startx > /tmp/x.out 2>&1"
to capture the error messages at startup and came up with some things I
have never seen before, like
"error opening security policy file
What is this? If anyone is interested and can help, I can email the
full x.out file for your perusal.
