Comment 83 for bug 33617

Tormod,

Thank you very much for your prompt and helpful response on the problem that I was experiencing! This demonstrates the vibrancy and value of Open Source in general and Ubuntu in particular.

With some "fear", this "dumb user" made the change that you suggested after learning to use sudo and nano, and it worked!

Thank you very much!

John

Subject: [Bug 33617] Re: X.org does not initialize screen on IBM T20, T21, T22

** Description changed:

  On the IBM T20 laptop using the Savage drivers, when gdm starts X,
 the
  screen stays black with a "_". The sound is initialized (I can hear
 the
  startup sound) and I can login through SSH. The screen gets
 initalized
  every 3 to 4 times of startup but I can't decern a pattern. This has
  always worked in previous versions of Ubuntu.
+
+ Workaround: Add this to the Device section of xorg.conf:
+ Option "BusType" "PCI"

** Summary changed:

- X.org does not initialize screen on IBM T20, T21, T22
+ [agp] X.org does not initialize screen on IBM T20, T21, T22

[agp] X.org does not initialize screen on IBM T20, T21, T22
