    So the real issue here is a bug with BulletProofX, it should keep the old log file about.

    That's it!

      The old file is created by Xorg itself btw. - as soon as you start the xserver the last one gets renamed and a new is written.

        So is this what a *proper* setup should do?
        - Try to use a fully accelerated driver
        - Check to see if it fails
        - If it doesn't, leave it alone, otherwise cp /var/log/Xorg.0.log to /var/log/Xorg.0.log.failed
        - Make X use VESA, and restart X

        Right?

          Agreed.

          I absolutely fscking HATE bulletproof X. I can't believe it was included to begin with.

          The worst part, was that it kept spawning new processes, turning what would be as simple as stopping gdm through init into a task requiring some serious bash foo.

            Hey, I'm sure that thing doesn't come with gentoo or slackware or whatever other non-n00b distro you use. Why does it bother you?

              Though I don't use Ubuntu any more (due to stupid decisions like BulletProofX), it bothers me that it's included because Ubuntu support sucks and their users end up in #compiz-fusion trying to get their drivers working :-)

                Of course. Instead of sitting on an 800x600 res troubleshooting, you'd like them to get a terminal so that they have absolutely no idea what to do and boot between windows to troubleshoot?

                  We've been over this. I'd like BulletProofX to do the right thing and backup a copy of the helpful /var/log/Xorg.0.log file.

                  Barring that, then yes I'd prefer that a few users get offended by being dropped to a TTY, complain to Ubuntu, and a better solution get developed as a result.

                    Chances are, they won't complain. They'll simply go away.

                      I guess we just have different ideas on mind for linux. I see it as a tool I can use. You see it as a tool everyone should use.
