As the problem only occurs after I exit X the log file isn't very helpful as
to what happens after. The last line is

(II) Mouse0: SetupAuto: protocol is SysMouse

However it seems to be cycling through various resolution modes before
starting, but no errors/warnings except for these lines

(II) VESA(0): Total Memory: 495 64KB banks (31680kB)

physical address = 0xe0000000, size = 32440320
(==) VESA(0): Write-combining range (0x0,0x1000) was already clear

This last line is repeated about 200 times throughtout the file.


It is an onboard graphics, some sort of VIA chipset. scanpci gives this

pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x00 function 0x00: vendor 0x1106 device 0x3116
 VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8375 [KM266/KL266] Host Bridge

I use the default install and I don't know what driver to get or how to
build it.. but surely if you have the wrong drivers X will not start rather
than not stop?
Any suggestions?
