Bug#611459: cdrom: installed system crashes when quitting X

Package: cdrom
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***

Installation from debian-squeeze-di-rc2-amd64-netinst.iso (and i386) works
smoothly up to the point of switching from X to console, quitting X, or
shutting down the system.

Any of the above actions causes the system to completely hang with a blank screen,
taking several resets to restart. Same issue exists with i386 and Ubuntu (I tried both).

After trying many different things (including experimental kernel), turns out that setting
vga=795 boot parameter makes the problem go away. That is, making the boot screen
resolution identical to X on my system (1280x1024x24).

I suppose this issue is being taken care off in future kernel releases,
however this report could help save others frustration and time.
Perhaps the installer should automatically set the boot parameter during
grub config, as workaround until a fix is in place.
