Re: [vox-tech] debian woody to sarge upgrade = dead xserver



Could You also post your /var/log/XFree86.0.log with the errors in it?

One thing you could also try is to disable the USB mouse (Comment out
the line under "Server Layout"
...  
 #    InputDevice     "Generic Mouse"
...
 and see what happens (I had this problem once when i didn't have a
usb mouse plugged in)
