Re: startx hangs my computer
Whoops - didn't attach them. I will do so in this post (I hope).
Also, forgot to mention - regarding the other suggestion:
I have tried it without Vert/Horiz stuff, and also with a ModulePath. Still get the problem.
Also, I am attaching the latest xorg.conf that I used (with the results described in my post of a moment ago). This was created by nvidia-xconfig, and apparently is a merge of my old (working) vesa xorg.conf with whatever nvidia-xconfig decided was good.
