Default Bug#607548: The screen is still black

This bug was closed (I think) because the problem was fixed according
to some information that I can no longer recover.

That is however not true. When starting Debian squeeze or Debian sid
I still often get a black screen on my Compaq 6510b. When this
happens, I type (blindly) user (root) password(***) and startx.

That will give a working system with X11. I can then exit from
X11 to enter terminal mode which then works fine.

I have updated to the latest version regularly, but the problem is
still there.


I boot into squeeze like this:
title sda8: Debian squeeze (2.6.32-5)
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686 root=/dev/sda8 ro quiet noresume
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-5-686
savedefault
boot

This is with the old style GRUB menu.lst because I have many
partitions and want to set things myself. The automated new
GRUB is beyond what I can understand with a reasonable effort.

Regards

Leif

This bug was never closed; I don't know why you think that.

Can you test whether this is fixed in a more recent kernel version, such
as 2.6.38 which is now available in 'sid'?

Ben.
