Ok, done that. (testing with 'vesa' driver). As before, 'startx' works,
'startxfce4' doesn't. Same results as my normal user and as root.

(II) Loading extension GLX

(WW) VESA(0): Option "RenderAccel" is not used

I don't know if tjose messages are important or not.

Well, as reported earlier, 'startx' works.

Ok, back to a basic xorg.conf, using the 'vesa' driver, no special settings
exccept setting my keyboard language layout to norwegian.
Doing startx, then testing a few things.
xvinfo - reports "no adaptors present"
xdriinfo - reports extension "XFree86-DRI" missing..., not direct rendering
glxgears - runs and reports 90+ FPS

I still don't know why Xfce refuses to run.
