As I just posted in another thread...

there's about a gazillion posts named 'problem escaping from X' 'X locks up' and the like...

Basically.. it goes away if you boot your computer with the tv-out cable unplugged... it's not distro-specific, it's something with the vbios or the driver.

Thankc to guills that opened my eyes!!! Just unplug all the wires on the back of the card except the svga cable for sure and then reboot. NO MORE LOCKUPS!

Which console mode use you ? Have you used frame-buffer console ?
