Re: switch from X to any tty freezes the macine
I have a few questions:
0) Did you verify that you're using the latest BIOS?
1) Does this problem persist if you remove 'quiet splash' from your GRUB configuration (and reboot)?
2) Does this problem persist with a more recent (2.6.18.x) kernel?
3) Does this problem persist with the 1.0-9742 driver as well?
