humm..well yes I appreciate what you say and I did read the links in the Cyril
Brulebois post. (X11 and xorg in transition) I examined ..../log/Xorg.0. after the
first failure of the 'startx' command (to bring up nvidia-glx) there was some
interesting attempts of X trying to load non-existent 'modules' like 'nv' 'nouveau'
'vesa' etc. Since this log gets recreated each time one runs startx, I put back
some missing packages (removed by the dist-upgrade) then ran startx again and got a
different set of errors but still no X. This is when (from reading other post on
the list) realized I didn't have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, so I recreated it and
my problem was resolved i.e. SOLVED.
Thanks for your reply
