It is curious to be sure. But when I tried to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf 'after
the dist-upgrade' when startx failed to start the nvidia driver, guess what vim
declared it was a new file. I made a special effort to make sure I had typed the
file name correctly.
dist-upgrade removed a lot of packages related to X including xserver-xorg that
contained a file I needed to have /usr/bin/X
After reinstalling xserver-xorg and xorg for good measure, I didn't get
the ..xserverrc: 3 exec: /usr/bin/X: xinit: giving up error message
anyway, I couldn't get the X back up until I created that /etc/X11/xorg.conf
file again. (a very simple one) but after that, all was once again well.
What do you think happened? I like to think it's sid/experimental walk on the wild
side Debian experience, invigorating if it doesn't go on too long.
