Is it possible to use a older version of xorg server in xenialpup?

Or maybe to use older version of xorg server in woof-ce to create xenialpup?

FYI....
The LxPupSc iso (32-bit!!) comes with an older xorg server (10.5 from memory) in a ydrv - it might work with xenialpup but not with xenialpup64....and xenialpup may need remaking with the current woof-ce to be able to use it (but this may not be necessary depending on the woof-ce used for xenialpup).

So it IS possible to change version of xorg?
What is needed for that?
I am more interested in moving to xorg 1.19 (from 1.18 ) because of better optimus support (possibly). But I always thought it is very hard to change xorg.

@peebee: I know your wonderful LxPupSc HAS xorg 1.19; I am planning to use it to try out optimus support.

xorgwizard has logic to recognise that an alternative xorg is available and to swap from the current to the alternative. The ydrv in the LxPupSc iso is configured correctly for this mechanism. (I've not looked recently but I think the alternative is put into /opt). The process is one way and permanent -i.e. you cannot go back if you decide it was a mistake so needs to be used with care!! So all you have to do is include the ydrv in your frugal install and then run xorgwizard from the console.

I just compiled the 64-bit Nvidia 340.102 driver for k.4.12.10. This set of patch files is very handy: https://github.com/minimyth2/script/nvidia/nvidia-340.102/files/.

Hello
666philb recently released his Xenial64 Pup 7.5 including a new kernel. So its time to change to a newer Nvidia driver. The ones that are offered by the Quickpet seem to be compiled with the previous Xenial64 7.0.8.6.
Despite the same kernel version number they don't work for me (the result is only a black screen ->for 340.104).
Moreover I like more a SFS-package.

Therefor I put together 2 packages, one for the 304.137 and one for the 340.104 driver. Both work with my old Nvidia card. I am not able to compile a newer driver.
Driver 304.137 http://www.mediafire.com/file/xb1r020bhrp2cpq/nvidia-glx-304.137-k4.9.58-xenial64.sfs
MD5 f3d5f0ead1622818aac78dc129c64f95

Driver 304.137 http://www.mediafire.com/file/1tdgbr339rdyjdd/nvidia-glx-340.104-k4.9.58-xenial64.sfs
MD5 9d2140e09ec61fd427a54e46221b6861

Installation of the SFS as described some pages back.
Good luck.
Christian
