Do you have https://packages.debian.org/stretch/xserver-xorg-legacy installed?

This install is sid using sysv
my one and only stable install is using minimal systemd (4 systemd packages).

The error is a generic message on sysv machines.
It's possible the sid upgraded packages borked the xserver and it's also possible that
changing the xserver config to run modesetting instead of intel than switching back to intel from modesetting borked the xserver. I'll only know for sure by bootstrapping another sid to see how it builds.

Yes I have xserver-xorg-legacy installed when running the intel driver. I believe I uninstalled it when testing modesetting as I wanted the minimal required to run X.
xorg-legacy was reinstalled along with xorg-video-intel when I switched back to intel from modesetting.

It's my first go at this modesetting thing. So I don't get half of how things are supposted to be setup yet.

It's just the same as with xserver-xorg-video-intel but with no TearFree option (good luck with that btw), my stable machine can switch between the two with a four-line xorg.conf.

I'm using systemd with a correct login session though, I don't think you are.

If you don't want systemd then why not try Devuan or one of the BSDs?

why I still use Debain and sysv? simply, I still can. :wink:

I can switch between the two using config files too.
Although I'm mostly interested in purging packages that are not needed, when possible.
(this is probably opposite of the systemd ethos)
I watch deps closely and I not happy about some of the new policy changes.
I don't see essential anymore, It probably got gobbled by required and important,
but that is a small issue that most endusers will ever see or care about.
Anyways,
Debian still does everything I want it to, even if it's not prefect.

edit: I ain't proud of the m$ crap in the logs either... One of These Days "Bang Zoom" :lol:
