That only works if the video driver manages to reset the video mode. With
the X breakage, it didn't. Several users reported they had to "type in the
dark" in the virtual console in order to reboot. I needed to reboot to
run-level 3 to get to see the virtual console.


What video?
This was getting currupted two or three days ago, when I switched to a tty from X. Seems okay now. 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

Here's the relevant drive para:

        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "intel"
EndSection

I've not changed kernel in weeks, every time I try I get one that doesn't boot.
