    What does /var/log/Xorg.0.log tell you ?

    Are you using /etc/X11/xorg.conf for control, or relying
    on Xorg to automatically configure the setup ?

    Are you using nv, nouveau, or vesa ? I haven't a clue
    as to what that means, but it is evidence you have been
    fooling around with your graphics subsystem :)

    Maybe not.
    I have so far a "small issue": kernel (2.6.37-020637rc2... do not
    bother, it's experimental so far) complains at startup about missing
    v86d (it's a 64 bit system). But if I install it, the x system just does
    not start (or whatever, screens remains blank).

    Simply removing that package (v86d) solved that issue.
    (I'm using nvidia 270.29, via nvidia-current package)
