Thanks but actually, I have already tried it by removing "rhgb
quiet" from grub to see what happened and X still died. X dies
after rhgb ends.
I don't think that this has anything to do with with the kernel.
I downloaded Ubuntu 5.10 and tried to install and the same thing
happened. They use 2.6.12... It must be either the radeon driver
that is bad or X itself.
Other people have reported having similar problem with ATI on
both Suse 10 and Ubuntu 5.10, so it must be something recent in X.
