I was just messing with this with a very good PLEXTOR DVD-RW drive,
tried to rebuild the kernel with only "device atapicam" and there
was some issues, for some strange reason, the system wedged, then
tried to read the drive's contents at boot time, and then I lost my
X resolution upon booting back into KDE, I was there with only what
amounted to 800x600 (actually something weirder than that) and could
NOT restore my X session, tried to reconfigure X -- nada.
The machine is triple booted with three different drives, X worked
fine on the other variants -- I thought the integrated video_chip
went bad, that was not the case, just 6.1 was bad, that was a
When I did try to start X in the beginning the whole system wedged,
could not understand why just adding the "device atapicam" line to a
new kernel would do this, something got corrupted.
I was getting "perfect" config files with "Xorg -configure" and no
matter what, nothing now.
Isn't 6.2 coming out soon?
