Hi. I just upgraded from testing to unstable, in order to get some
updated packages I need.

X is now not working, and i dont know why. There are no useful
messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, that i can tell--no errors are
reported adn the only thing that looks bad is "SELinux: Disabled on
system, not enabling in X server".

There are no useful messages in /var/log/messages.

In /var/log/gdm/:0.log I get an error "RADEON(0): [dri]
RADEONDRIGetVersion failed to open the DRM" and then "[dri] Disabling
DRI."; but then perhaps better, "Unhandled monitor type 0 after
xf86InitialConfiguration" "Output LCD1 disable success". At the end of
this log there is "/usr/bin/X: symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions// undefined symbol:

It looks like your X is trying to use from the fglrx-driver
package together with the radeon driver; this cannot work. You either
have to make X use the fglrx driver (provided that you can install it
correctly) or you have to get rid of the fglrx-driver package (which
should restore the normal from Xorg).
