I have mentioned this before in an old topic, but with the upcoming release of 2008.2 I hope there is a solution for this yet.
If I boot my laptop (Toshiba Satellite A100) with an Intel 945GM graphics chip, the X server randomly won't start. I'm left with a blinking cursor, without any error messages. I guess there will be a log file somewhere, but I don't know where.
This problem exists since 2008.0; 2008.1 didn't solve anything and 2008.2 beta stopped the X server from crashing while it was already running, so it's a start
I noticed that I have a really better chance of getting the X server to start if I select 'Opnieuw koppelen' (Dutch) in the GRUB menu with F3, which is the 3th option, next to 'Standard' and 'Failsafe'
Does anyone have a solution?
