X freeze the system after upgrade
My Xorg completely freeze up the system after my recent upgrade. What can
I do now?
First I thought it was gdm's problem, Then I started the system in text
mode and using the 'startx' to start my default fluxbox. But the symptom
is the same -- completely system freeze up. Can't be pinged and can't
even move mouse or switch to virtual console.
The Xorg.0.log of gdm and fluxbox are almost identical:
