All I get when running X -config ~/xorg.conf.new is a black screen. There are no errors in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file. The only warning I get is:
(WW) Open ACPI failed (/var/run/acpid.socket) (No such file or directory)
which is the same warning I get on my LFS6.4 system kernel 184.108.40.206 which starts X Windows with no problems.
The most likely explaination is that I have missed a step somewhere. So my question is can I reinstall all the packages that I have installed sofar in blfssvn-20090928 or would I have to go through the book and somehow delete all the packages first before doing a clean install?
PS Since xf86-video-vesa-2.0.1.tar.bz2 is missing from both xorg.freedesktop.org/releases/individual/driver/ and
I tried installing xf86-video-vesa-2.0.0.tar.bz2 could this be the problem and if so which of the xf86-video-vesa-2 tar files should I be using?
