    Today's updates also rewrote xorg.conf.  After tryin to revert 
to a backup copy, starting X from lvl 3, an such didn't work, I 
booted Mandriva an d/l'd current -test mesgs. Yours was a 
lifesaver.   THANKS!  

    I copied the i386 FC6-test1 gdm an xorg-x11-xinit rpms to hdd, 
logged in as root an --forced them in.  An X, kde then started 
normally.  I suspect it's only xorg-x11-xinit that broke X tho.
