Default Re: Freeze on X shutdown or change to console

I was experiencing this problem under Mandrake9.2 and 10.
There was a suggestion to place 'Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"' in the "Device" section of your XF86Config-4.

This did NOT help me. After I did this, I had no luck getting Xwindows to start at all.

What DID help me, though, is placing
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT"

in the Device section.
As soon as I did that, I could switch back and forth from X to console.

Do with it what ye will.
