[i]It crashed for me too when I used version 4.2.0_2 of those packages. [/b]
Hmm I just finished the upgrade and it get's further but still crashes
It starts running my desktop and then hands the PC
I can still ping it, but userland is dead. I can't seem to get a panic, but I guess if I hook up a serial console I probably should be able to get some sort of back trace.
Time to break out the null modem cable
I added the VESA option to my kernel config and now it seems to work fine.
During my testing I noticed that a colour changed image of a movie I used to test Xv with appeared in the console, and then in the main display. Weird.. When I ran the player again (mplayer) the trash image disappeared.
