10 Okay, we're slowly moving forward ...
12 My first attempt got the error "kwin-plasma won't run as root" or
13 somesuch. Created a new user for me, and promptly got a black screen!
15 As I said earlier, X currently won't run. I've got a Asus EAH4350, and
16 am loading the Radeon driver. When I looked at the X log it was clearly
17 loading the driver, which failed with something like "cannot find
18 /dev/card1". If that gives anyone any clues where to point me that's
19 great, or I'll transfer the logs to this machine and post them.
