Comment 14 for bug 33617

Note: This report was sent in using reportbug by at

Hi, a week ago installed Dapper, and when it finished, I stared at a
blank screen. Later I found out that X was crashing the video adapter.
Not even soft reboot would recover it, only power cycling. I learned
this is a rare problem, solved with the following option in xorg.conf:

        Option "BusType" "PCI"

Now it works, but I still have Oopses in the savage kernel module, and
the occassional freeze (as it's a total freeze, I cannot know what
causes it, but I'd bet on the savage). Maybe those symptoms are related.

I found some info on this on:

My system is a IBM Thinkpad portable. T20 series, model 2647.

report-hw output is included.
