I've had Xorg running on my laptop for a couple of months in my Sid
partition so I knew it would work. ;-)
I rebooted the laptop (Thinkpad T23) into the Etch partition, did an
update in Aptitude and Whaddayaknow, Xorg!
I did the upgrade, had to select xserver-xorg manually, ran
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, answered the questions based on what was
in my XF86Config file, ran startx and it all worked! The fonts looked
horrid so I copied the debconf lines into xorg,conf and reconfigured
fontconfig to restore the anti-alias capability. Everthing now looks
and works the same as before.
Very seamless and almost a non-event for such a major system upgrade.
