Post Video driver source code
From the other posts, I can conlude that you don't have the source code for the emgd video driver, or you wouldn't be telling people to downgrade Xorg to 1.9. Because, if you did have the source code, then any slackware with an Xorg within range could be used to compile the driver so it runs as though part of the system Xorg.

Just for the fun of it, I copied my z510 RIPLinuX system onto a cleaned partition, then used dpkg-deb from my real RIP system to install emgd onto the new system, including modifying the new xorg.conf to be compatible with RIP. When I restarted to the new partition and did xinit, I got an error message Xorg.0.log with some choice lines, none of which indicate that it is being used with the wrong Xorg, which is 1.95 in this case:

P. S. One Linux problem on the z510 appears to be excessive "acceleeration" overhead. With mesa disabled or removed, graphics works better on the z510. And, again, xine is greatly to be preferred to mplayervaapi.

P. P. S. I tried your "accelerated" flash player, failed to work on my base system.
