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 Tongue

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?  Undecided

According to this bug report, it could be related to cpufreq.

Indeed it is.  Cpufreq screws things up for me.

Adding    Option "FramebufferCompression" "false"   to device section of xorg.conf fixes things;

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

look for [device]

add the line to the bottom of the section.

Press ctrl x and enter y followed by enter.

Now reboot and you should be ok.
