Magic update broke X

Post by Gareth Sargeant » Mon Dec 15, 2003 1:47 am

Hi there,

I just ran Magic for the first time and when it rebooted X was broken.

Can someone tell me what to do next?

Thank-you in advance

Thanks, I saw it.

It's funny. I was sure that I read something about that the night before but then after it happened I couldnt find the same thread.

One day I'll be an experienced user and I'll offer help to everyone who asks. Until then, thanks for your patience.
