Hi there,

I have been using my laptop (Dell Inspiron 6400 with an ATI Mobility X1400
[lspci info below]) with the radeonhd driver without no problems.

After I switched to Ubuntu 10.04 first and then to Fedora 13, those
distributions came with the radeon driver default and I began to experience
random crashes at system start when the video driver was loaded (reported at
and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=606142).

Yesterday I updated some packages via the Fedora updater (yum install) and the
crash happens each time I start the system. So the laptop is totally unusable
(I'm reporting this using the Fedora 13 in live mode).

I don't even know how to disable the X server loading (I have googled for it,
but I found nothing).

The xorg.conf file seems not to be part of Fedora
(http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=20492), so I cannot provide it,
and no X.0.log is provided.

After reading http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Xorg/Debugging, I guess I need a
PhD in computer science to report it.

I'll try to switch to the radeonhd driver and see whether I could find a way to
report this crash (although it is extremely complicated for me [I'm a user, not
a programer]).

Thanks anyway. Just in case it might help,
