X11 setup ....

   .... I am following the instructions at
   tml to get my newly installed xorg setup. I stepped through everything
   up to the 'Xorg -config xorg.conf.new -retro' which didn't fail, bit
   didn't behave quite like it was supposed to .... Machine is AMD Jaguar
   Kabini based, quad core, 1.3 GHz, 25W, gfx on die:
   Aug  9 10:23:34 kabini1 kernel: CPU: AMD Sempron(tm) 3850 APU with
   Radeon(tm) R3     (1297.59-MHz K8-class CPU)
   xorg detects it as: BoardName   "Kabini [Radeon HD 8280 / R3 Series]"
   The above test is supposed to give a black & grey grid on the screen,
   w/ an X-mouse. I have the mouse, & it moves around, although
   click-&-drag does nothing, & I might have the grid, although it is
   pixel-by-pixel, not finitely sized grid .... The troubleshooting page
   is little help .... Am I good to go or not :-/ ? TIA ....
