I've figured out how to stop Ubuntu from booting into X, and now I've
got some more info.
I can *only* start X with DRI disabled, via the line:
Option "DRI" "0"
If I start with XAA enabled ( and DRI enabled ), I get a quite corrupted
display, and a hard lockup. It looks like this:
If I start with EXA enabled ( and DRI enabled ), I get a black screen, a
crosshair mouse, and a hard lockup. There wasn't much point taking a
picture of this screen ...
In both cases, I can move the mouse, but *very* slowly.
Keep in mind that I can't guarantee that either of these logs as
complete, as the magic system keys ( eg Alt + SysRq + S / U / B )
weren't working, and I hard to cut the power each time.
With DRI disabled, I can start with EXA or XAA and everything seems to
The only thing that looks suspicious in the logs ( other than the 'EQ
overlowing' bit ) is this:
(II) config/hal: Adding input device Macintosh mouse button emulation
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: always reports core events
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Device: "/dev/input/event0"
(II) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Found x and y relative axes
(II) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Found 3 mouse buttons
(II) Macintosh mouse button emulation: Configuring as mouse
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Macintosh mouse button
emulation" (type: MOUSE)
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: YAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5
(**) Macintosh mouse button emulation: EmulateWheelButton: 4,
EmulateWheelInertia: 10, EmulateWheelTimeout: 200
I haven't seen this before, and don't have a macintosh mouse. I have a
touchpad on my laptop, with 5 buttons. But this shouldn't cause a lockup
with DRI enabled, should it?
