I'm prevented from switching to the console, I think because that is locked
out while X is starting. But starting in single mode, and running startx
from there, I got a different result. Still no mouse or keyboard input
available, and no login. It goes straight to a desktop display, with icons
on theleft for Home, File System, Trsh, and the disk volumes available.
There is a window in front which says "Welcome to the first start of the
panel" in bold, and "Choose below which setup you want for the first
startup." with two buttons, "Use default config" or "One empty panel".

Maybe this could be related to my /llib/modules folder being mis-named? See
758394. That might explain the missing mouse, anyway.

The computer is unresponsive at this point, can't switch back to the
console. Have to shut it down. And bedtime here with work tomorrow, so next
update in 20 hours or so :)
