Last night, I somehow decided to update the Debian Lenny I had been using on my 600 MHz iBook for a few years. It was a mistake.
Only after the update and first boot of Wheezy I remembered having encountered severe problems in getting the X running on this old laptop.
After the update I got a bunch of error messages somehow caused by the Wacom drivers installed by default. After removing the xserver-xorg-input-wacom, I was able to boot the box without endless error messages.
But when I gave the magic word
startx on the command prompt, I got black screen instead of the ratpoison window manager. Ouch. Again.
It seems I need to go through this Xorg configuration hell once again in 2012. Or should I just uninstall the whole xorg and live on the console and screen? Or should I finally get rid of this lovely white laptop?
