Comment 2 Andreas Petzold 2010-05-21 16:16:27 UTC
I should have studied the Xorg log more carefully. Looks like X didn't find any output device:

(WW) intel(0): No outputs definitely connected, trying again...
(II) intel(0): Output VGA1 disconnected
(II) intel(0): Output HDMI1 disconnected
(II) intel(0): Output HDMI2 disconnected
(WW) intel(0): Unable to find initial modes
(EE) intel(0): No modes.
(II) UnloadModule: "intel"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

My monitor was connected vie a DVI-to-VGA adapter. All is fine when directly using DVI.

I'm closing this now, since it's not a bug.
