Public bug reported:
$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu Bionic Beaver (development branch)
$ apt-cache policy xorg
The system is an upgrade from 17.10 to 18.04. The X-server fails to start
initially, on each boot. After switching to tty2 I can start the login daemon
$ systemctl start sddm
and X and sddm work as expected. (i.e. X starts, the login daemon
starts, I can login to an X session)
The system in question is a Lenovo X220 Thinkpad with integrated
graphics. As lspci puts it:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core
Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
This behaviour started as a result of the upgrade.
** Affects: xorg (Ubuntu)
