Default Bug#595103: framebuffer gone for intel i915 starting 2.6.32-21

retitle 595103 framebuffer gone for intel i915 starting 2.6.32-21
severity 595103 grave
thanks

This is clearly a kernel issue and has nothing to do with xorg-anything.

However, until it is fixed, one cannot dream of running X windows. Even
just running on the console will eventually lead to a black screen, and
the need to reboot, disks having been synced or not.

This is not true. You can get X up with vesa just fine.

Even /etc/init.d/console-setup is affected I believe. Normally during
boot the console messages disappear, then reappear but now getting printed
at a smaller size. This corresponds to the point things start getting
logged in /var/log/boot. The first line wherein being
Thu Sep 23 14:51:41 2010: Activating swap...done.

Starting with kernel -21 they just all get printed at the same initial
size. I.e., the trouble starts right there X or no X.

Not me though. And, I needn't start X at all, and before long the entire
display disappears and we need to cold reboot holding down the power
button, disks having been synced or not. Hence grave.
