X was still alive... in an interruptable read. I had thought about Mesa
but didn't realize where i'd have to go to get sufficiently new code.
It's all moot at this point, anyway, as i sent my brand new HP back for
a refund. I was fine with working through the Linux problems, but not
the fact that the laptop itself emanated a slight burning insulation
odor when it was running.
Anyway, thanks for the help.
