Houston, there's a problem
attached is the typescript for the 3.3.6 -> v18 upgrade. Unpacking
Starting X font server: xfsusage: /usr/bin/X11/xfs [-config config_file] [-port tcp_port]
start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile $PIDFILE --exec $DAEMON -- -background || echo -n " already running"
--background (double hyphen) is a start-stop-daemon option, not a xfs
one. [for anyone reading this: change your /etc/fs/config, xfs
segfaults on start up if the path its trying to read doesn't exist --
will look into it later if noone beats me to it]
Starting X display manager: xdm.
and doesn't start. Starting the xserver manually:
Could not find config file!
my best guess would be to fix the 3.3.6 servers to look in
/etc/X11/XF86Config. Am I missing something obvious here?
Trying to log in:

sorry, I don't grok PAM and I don't think I can learn it in the five
minutes I have left here.
