Re: X fails to start a few times before "really starting"
I have a Samsung R560 with a GT9600M.
I see the same behavior with my Debian 64bit system and newest drivers.
Usually it only fails one time before it starts the GDM login screen. I do not use autologin so I can not tell if this is the reason for the multiple fails.
Unfortunately I am not at my notebook at the moment to provide any log files. If needed I can post them later. Just let me know.
