Update: Still having issues, but managed to figure out how to correctly start xfce4. It is almost usable, but slow, because of the nv fallback driver. I sent by mistake only the startx errors to another thread entitled "followup to my last message". Sorry if that breaks continuity. I can attach it to this message so as to not break the thread. As I said before, the startkde never gets a chance to start, but at least X is working - sort of. I want to of course figure out what those extra errors are coming from and how to fix it. The dist-upgrade doesn't seem to have helped this situation - did a dist-upgrade this AM on lenny and everything was fine, and suddenly I was trying to look at a document in openoffice and the whole X session just hung, and I had to ctrl-alt-backspace. After that, I can't get my display back the way it was.
