OK, I went through all that mumbo-jumbo again with the modification. The steps are:
1. Open an EmelFM window and a Beaver (editor) window.
2. Open a root shell.
3. Enter "XFree86 -configure". The screen will blink a bit when it autoconfigures your hardware. The new config file is in your /root directory, called XF86config.new. Check it with your default editor and change if needed.
4. Copy this file into /etc/X11.
5. Rename this file as XF86Config .
6. If necessary, remove all old XF86Config-starting files.
7. Copy the file "xserverrc_for_XF86" from /home/dsl/XFree86_config_files to the /home/dsl directory.
8. Rename this file ".xserverrc".
9. Go to DSL menu -> Exit -> Exit to prompt
10. Enter "startx".
But it still doesn't work. The screen resets, but things don't work the way I'm used to, and I have to reboot to get Xvesa back. To add insult to injury, the pictures are STILL too dark.
What now? Why isn't XFree86.unc working like it's supposed to? Would xorg72.uci be better? How do I get that working? Please give me the whole procedure. I need ANSWERS, not cryptic hints.
