    Graphics problems...

    For all its maturity, problems with graphics with installs out of the box are still there... This time, trying to use RHEL4 on an HP machine with Intel 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset.

    Seems fine, until you try to restart the X Window System with CTL-ALT-Backspace. The screen just goes blank, no message, no GUI - nothing. Log into a character interface, run level 5 is shown, and the startx command works well.

    Just wonder, actually... Could it be a setting somewhere stopping the CTL-ALT-Backspace restart deliberately? Will need to do a bit of 'googling'.
