To fix things, you will either need to reboot or, if /etc/sysconfig/Xserver=Xvesa, exit to the prompt using the exit icon and "startx"
Done that, it didn't change a thing.

How did you generate it in the first place ?
Just copied and pasted from onboot.lst

If I were you, I'd re-configure the onboot.lst
How?

Replace the content inside with default xbase.lst
Code: [Select]
Xvesa.tcz
aterm.tcz
flwm_topside.tcz
wbar.tcz

Xlibs in onboot.lst turned out to be a problem.
After deleting it from there all runs smooth now.
On first reboot the resolution choice has appeared and now I can change it any time i want it from the ControlPanel on both computers.
How Xlibs got in there is a little mysterious for me as I've never messed up with the system settings except installing some apps.

Anyway, thanks for your help guys.

I don't think so.
Xlibs is required to start a X server.
Is it redundant to be listed in onbllt.lst? Yes.
Is it the cause to your misery? No.
The other files are more likely to bring about the trouble.

Well, Xlibs is not now in onboot.lst and all is fine.
But it is still listed as present after that ...| grep X command along with: Xorg-7.7-lib, Xprogs and Xvesa and a long list of others as well.
Startx from prompt is working, BTW.

That's because an extensions dependencies are loaded recursively - see:

It's strange that this is not the first time recently a forum OP has inadvertently messed up their onboot.lst so badly that systems no longer boot as desired..   Becoming a trend?  There must be a good reason why this is happening, right?
