initial Xorg.log after installation
I reopened the bugreport after having access again to a T22. I installed the
final F7 and I ran into the same issue - the xserver didn't start after launch
of system-config-display during firstboot.
I had to do hard reset as also switching to another console didn't work anymore.
You'll find the logfile as requested in my last reply from 2007-06-15.
Resolution: I've used my manually created xorg.conf I've already posted and it
works again fine.
