Hi there, I poked around a bit, changing several settings and the modules to be loaded in xorg.conf. It turns out that the error is caused by DRI. I'm pretty sure I tried this before... So, disabling DRI by commenting out the module in xorg.conf makes X behave correctly, I can start and stop it without any problems.
But of course I would like to use DRI on my Laptop, should give a speed bump, especially since I'm interested in using blender. So, is there anybody out there who could give some advice of what to do? I changed my kernel configuration so that drm and savagedrm are part of it, no need for a module. But this doesn't anything, too (didn't expect it to change anything, but anyway, it was worth a try...) Regards Christian On 16/11/06, Ian Smith <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:

Sorry, I was mistaken .. I've still got this problem too. Once I got suspend/resume going I hadn't quit X in more than a month. Tonight I did, to check, and there was the blank screen again. So I resorted to my old workaround, which may also work for you; I just type 'fixme' at the unseen vty prompt: t23# cat ~/bin/fixme #!/bin/sh # strangely enough, this invalid mode restores vttyX with the error message: # vidcontrol: cannot activate raster display: Inappropriate ioctl for device vidcontrol VESA_800x600 Bizarre, but the only way I found worked, by accident. Valid vidcontrol commands failed to achieve this for me, but I know very little magic .. Earlier I'd found that setting one vty with 'vidcontrol VGA_80x30' before starting X helped if I switched back to that, but only running 'fixme' saved me tonight. It's evil, but sure beats rebooting .. > Sorry for repeating the issue, but maybe I mislead you, because this > is just one problem (at least as far as I can tell).

If you have access to a windows box to burn the floppies and a USB floppy drive, or Windows on the T23, you're set.
