The xserver settings seem to get messed up on reboots from session to
session with my laptop. I get a black screen and the keyboard does not
respond. This only happens on my laptop, so it must be an xorg issue,
and/or (K)ubuntu autodetection?
My workaround is to boot using rescue mode, run "startx" as root, log
out of X, then press Ctrl-D and continue booting as normal into X as my
What is startx (*not* startkde), run as root, doing to rectify the
Note, the actual xorg file remains unchanged. So I'm baffled, and it's
totally annoying. Does anybody know what X is up to and why this
setting goes wrong on reboots?
