No closed nvidia drivers, all nouveau. Top level apps were firefox27 or 
chromium.  And to get something that attempts to work, I've swapped back to 
the nvidia card.  I figured 2 days was long enough to wait for a reply, and 
zero traffic from the list in that 2 days, and I needed something quasi-
usable.  If we can keep a conversation going, I will switch back.

Audio is a small amplified 3 speaker set plugged into line out on the asus 
motherboards HDA Intel audio.  Too heavy on bass, but no controls.

xorg.0.log attached, but as you know, that is replaced on every startx or 
equ.  So this one represents the nvidia card boot.  Looks to be an endless 
framebuffer error in places.

I just reinstalled ALL the OpenGL and msa-glx stuff, no change, glxgears is 
still a segfault. I didn't uninstall the flgrx stuff, but didn't reinstall 
it either.

I am also building kernels a couple times a day, trying to get a 3.13.1 to 
boot, but its hanging at top_init.  This is 3.12.9 ATM.

Cheers, Gene
