X not working after upgrade to 3.4

pkg_delete wouldn't let me :(, still required by modular-xorg-drivers-1.4
It seems a shame that this is stopping me using DragonFly BSD.
If I were to reinstall version 3.2 (which had X working), could I
investigate this problem while still being able to use the OS? Could I
run 3.2 and try to switch in the newer modular-xorg (and switch it out
again if it doesn't work)?
Thanks for your patience on this
