Workstation Problem Fixed

My workstation is finally back to normal again after i downgrade all packages in x/ directory to the original files in Slackware 13.0. First, i mounted the Slackware CD 2 ISO into a local directory using mount -o loop command, and then i executed upgradepkg --install-new slackware/x/*txz which will downgrade all packages in the x/ directory and i can go to my X environment again.

Basically, i updates all packages to the latest Slackware-Current batch of update, except the x/ which makes me still running the old XOrg server, but no problem for now, as i don't even use the new feature in newer XOrg package. I think it's getting more complicated, mostly for end users.
