Laptop freezes sometimes when Debian Lenny starts
the title of this post is nearly all information I can give you.
Sometimes when I boot my laptop with Debian Lenny the screen turns black when the X server starts and then the laptop freezes. No keyboard interaction works any more (e.g. I cannot kill the server or switch to any tty). I have to restart the laptop using the on/off switch and try again. Normally the second time works fine.
Maybe you can give me some solutions for this error or some hinds how to debug this. I have no idea how I can track the error because everything crashes before I can do anything.
If you need any more informations I can obtain from a normal (not crashed) run just let me know.
Thanks a lot and best regards,
