i've been running into an intermittent problem on my thinkpad x20. on some cold boots i don't see the bios message or any boot message. the screen is backlight, there is just no text on the console. there is obviously disk activity, however, so i've waited till that stops to carefully (and blindly) enter my shutdown -r sequence. on the second boot i get the normal bios message and see all the boot messages. i'm wondering if anyone has run into something like this before, or could suggest things (lilo settings?) to look at that might address this. fwiw, this is for woody upgraded from potato on a fresh hard drive (no other os was previously installed). i'm booting into the console, not using xdm so X isn't a factor. thanks in advance, serge -- Serge Rey http://typhoon.sdsu.edu/rey.html when i woke up this morning, things were looking bad seemed like total silence was the only friend i had, a bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down, and won and it was twelve o'clock before i realized i was having no fun - John Prine "illegal smile"
