xorg on thinkpad A21m

Well, I've really done it now.

I tried to upgrade my Thinkpad A21m from xserver-xfree86 to xorg on testing. It's pretty badly hosed up right now.

xorg won't work. Keeps claiming I am missing a driver 'synaptics'. I don't have any such device so I really don't see that this should be a problem except that the hardware autodetection (assumption) decided I needed to configure my notebook for same. I guess that's a bit of a bug, but I can't find any discussion about such a problem.

And I can't get back to xserver-xfree86.

I've purged all the files and now nothing works. The xorg script keeps trying to convert the nonexistent files and fails.

it's really frustrating.

I was able to get some kind of xorg to work but at the wrong resolution.
But only from 'startx' never from wdm.

Right now, as it stands. I can get X working from 'startx' but nothing from wdm.

from syslog:

FATAL error inserting apm.. No such device.
I don't have one installed and have ACPI instead.

wdm:  (EE) No Input driver matching 'synaptics'
Again, I don't have one installed and have no touchpad device on this computer. Again: WTF?

Greet cannot exec /usr/bin/X11/wdmLogin
guarenteed_read error, UNMANAGE_DISPLAY
pipe read error with /usr/bin/X11/wdmLogin
Server crash rate too high: removing display :0

Am I to understand that wdm (wings display manager) just doesn't "do" X.org? Or are there some bugs there I don't know about?

wdm is already at -unstable.
