RE: Xorg issue with 5.0_BETA and nVidia GeForce 2 card

Hi all,

I've just tried out on 5.0_BETA/i386 for the first time, I  used
"X -configure" to create a test configuration file, and then ran the X
server with that file.  The server starts, but then gets stuck at some
initialization point while the screen is still in that state where it
has the grey background and the mouse cursor that's an "X".  It never
gets past that point.  Killing the server leaves the console stuck in
that state.  (I don't know if this is useful, but the mouse does
respond while the X server is running.)

The very simple answer to my problem is that for whatever reason,
X -config <config file> doesn't work, it leads to the problem in
question.  But simply running startx with an .xinitrc referencing a
window manager of choice works fine.
