not sure if it is related to our case...
Comment 6 Mads Kiilerich 2008-12-03 20:35:04 EST
These days "graphical boot" usually means kernel mode setting and graphical plumouth boot. AFAIK that is however only implemented for some ATI chipsets, and I doubt there is any plans to implement it for nVidia any time soon. So I don't think that is the case here.

FWIW it seems to me that a better description of your problem is that the X server 1.5.3-5 just doesn't work with 2.6.28 kernels.
