Yep, yep, disabling KMS works for me. Following,

Disabling Radeon KMS 

I successfully get it disabled and startx didn't freeze any more. 

However, after I enable gdm GUI booting, it freeze again. 

The only thing I did was,

 update-rc.d gdm defaults

to enable it again (it was removed with "update-rc.d -f gdm remove" 
before), then reboot. 


- KMS is required in order to run X (Gnome, KDE, etc). 
- Since xf86-video-intel 2.10, using KMS is mandatory.

Hope that's only for intel chipset, 'cause I'm using ATI Radeon:

$ lspci | grep Radeon
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 
9200 SE] (rev 01)

I'm in dilemma here. What should I do?
