thanks for your answer. Like I said in previous post I am pretty new to configuring stuff under Linux. I didn't know about Ctrl-Alt-F1 but I just tried it and I do get the prompt back. I see the following message:
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on Xserver ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
In several other posts I read about kernel oops but I am not sure what that is (like I said, I am a newbie, but willing to learn
). Is that linux slang for errors reported by the kernel? Anyway, I attached the demsg file. Do you see anything wrong with it? Do you think I should apply that patch from minion.de?
