My X also didn't start after the update. I got it fixed though.
The trouble seems to be related to improved monitor detection that
conflicts with manual settings.
To get my X work again I removed all entries in the section Monitor
except for Identifier:
I also removed the MonitorLayout from my Device section, this was
actually causing the problem I think, even though the entry was correct
it seemed to cause problems with the auto detection of xorg. It now
looks like this:
Identifier "ATI Radeon 7500 Mobile"
Option "BusType" "AGP"
Option "AGPMode" "4"
Option "AGPFastWrite" "true"
Option "GartSize" "64"
Option "EnablePageFlip" "true"
Option "DDCMode" "true"
I also cleaned up my Screen section, because X is now well capable of
detecting the supported resolutions without me interfering:
Identifier "Screen 1"
Device "ATI Radeon 7500 Mobile"
BTW, DRI is not broken for me and after the update glxgears performs
with 37% more fps. I also noticed a performance boost in Quake 3 Arena.
