6. Hopefully report success. :)

Could be hardware, I suppose. Switch to a tty with CTL-ALT-F1. Login as a
user and get the video card data from the command 'lspci'.

While you are out of X ALT-F2 gives you another console to log in as
root and remove lightdm with

    apt-get purge lightdm

Because I like to be tidy I'd now return the machine to a more or less
basic configuration

    apt-get purge fonts* x11-* dbus xfce4*

followed by

    apt-get --purge autoremove


    apt-get install xorg fvwm

and, as a user


How does this go? If ok 'apt-get install xfce4' and 'startx'.

The card shows up as:
01:09.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Rage XL PCI (rev 27)

I'm hesitant to apt-get --purge autoremove since it wants to remove systemd.

If I install xorg and fvwm, it works fine. I can run xclock, it shows up, and I can move it around. When I install xfce4, then startx crashes with the segfault at 0xc, signal 11.
