            Bug ID: 106835
           Summary: Black screen when attempting startx
           Product: Mesa
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)

Since installing mesa-18.0.4.tar.xz provided by my distro I get a black screen
when using startx.

The environment I see this on is 

Slackware64-Current running in virtualbox.

I have two work arounds

Don't maximise the virtualbox window

add nomodeset as a kernel parameter when booting.

I have downloaded the Mesa git repository and bisected the code and will attach
the bisect log

Please advise me if you require any other information.
