startx blank-screen crashes fix
After installing the drivers and editing x86config as per readme I was getting what appeared to be a crash, the screen would go completely blank with no pc activity and dead keyboard needing a hard reboot. Searching the forum I saw that a lot of people are posting similar problems so i thought I would report how I fixed it.

See this thread and read the second post

I don't know whether my pc would have eventually booted if left for long enough, I left it for 3-4 minutes at least, but applying this fix solved the problem.

I have a crt monitor so I added the line,
option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"
and it now boots perfectly.

Check the readme for details.

where did you put it? Under modules?

no, under device. Check readme for syntax as I wrote the option into my first post from memory.
