That might be an option, but I noticed, right after sending the last mail, 
that it was using /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, and xf86config was writing to 
/etc/X11/XF86Config. After a bit of moving things around, and, of course, 
having over-written my original and working XF86Config several times (Someday 
I'll learn to back things up BEFORE screwing up my system) I was able to get 
X working again in some semblance of the original settings I had before. Of 
course, when I'm stuck looking at console, and trying to re-compile X and 
using Xaccel, I tend to panic. Sorry :-(

I think it's getting near time for me to wipe large partitions again and 
re-install a cleaner system again. Having a mix of:
1) Branden's .deb's over three versions
2) self-compiled X blindly thrown in with make World; make install
3) xig's Accelerated X server for 3-D stuff
Can't be good for the stability of my box.

On a related note, Branden, did you get the glint_rgb_fix.diff I sent you? 
The week I'm sure I was using it, I didn't see any of the problems Sven said 
the patch was supposed to fix.

I might wait until I know this patch is in your .deb's before I do the 

Thanks for all the hard work! Without you, Debian and XFree86 would be much
