I have not tried the latest VL59-rc*
However, I would like to raise the question of how much of the problems with VL59* is on account of those new buggy xorg files? Do they have to be used at all or would the ones of VL58 still do and incorporate the new xorg stuff once the dust has mor or less settled.
If I would be a newcomer I would have to abandon the idea to use slackware12 and any of its clones at all and then either stick with Windoof or try another Linux distro. In my case I could not stick with Windows since I do not have it in my system and know nothing about it.
With the first release of slack12 I could not get X up at all. The next upgrade of xorg trying to get out of X the system would freeze. Now with the next batch when trying to use a program requiring full screen such as tuxtype, megamario, etc the program crashes as well as X.
One wonders how such buggy xorgs could be released, giving a black mark for Linux OS.
