[SOLVED] X11 problem with Daedalus

I have a problem with Daedalus.
Thinkpad L512 I3 chipset with 4 gig ram (max)

Under Chimaera:

bob@thinkpad:~$ uname -r
5.10.0-29-amd64

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then, yesterday (May 20th) with expert install of Daedalus, selecting install all drivers, with mate desktop, audacity and vlc crashes the xserver.

Then placed the following in:
/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/09-force-intel-driver.conf

Section "Device"
    Identifier "Device1"
    Driver "intel"
EndSection

No joy, it also screwed up the desktop menuing.  I think it might have to do with kernel drivers, and/or mesa?

What are my options? Suggestions? I have a clonezilla backup of Chimaera install that works perfectly.

Thanks,
Bob

A bit of output log wouldn't do us any harm :)

Re: [SOLVED] X11 problem with Daedalus

Have you considered a standard Daedalus install (desktop-iso 5.01) and not choosing Expert, but standard install? You still can choose what DE and which software-packages to install.
Might be an easier approach to get your Lenovo running Devuan Daedalus. And don't forget to read the docs before posting.
Hope it helps.

In this situation, I would have upgrade chimaera to daedalus.

EDIT:
The one line above sounds stupid, sorry. I'll try again in detail:

There is no need to re-install. Doing a dist-upgrade with apt works fine. Benefits are: Manual configurations are preserved, less time consuming, everything is basically as it was. The process is not too complicated and in the worst case you can recover chimaera.
(edit /etc/apt/sources.list accordingly; apt update; apt upgrade; apt dist-upgrade and it's done)

Re: [SOLVED] X11 problem with Daedalus

@Andre4freedom...I took your advice (sort of).  I used a spare ssd, did another net install; formatting all partitions rather than not formatting /home, choosing mate desktop.
The only software installed after, via synaptic was audacity and vlc, with recommends.  I then copied a video and a audio file over from a flash drive.
Other than a few flickers on a mouse hover on the audacity menu item, all seems ok; vlc played the video ok.  Not sure what is different; I did make sure
to rename the dot files on the first install, but perhaps I missed one, and that could have been the problem.  Not sure how I can check that on the first
install.
That said, I will mark this as solved and thanks to all who chimed in.

Best regards,
Bob

Re: [SOLVED] X11 problem with Daedalus

Further re the above...Upon more testing, I found firefox now crashing the x11 server.  So I give up.
My final solution to this problem is: don't upgrade to Daedalus, but stay on Chimaera.  Perhaps the laptop will expire before Chimaera
goes out of support.  Sigh.

Regards,
Bob
