I have a habit of running into hang-ups while running Xserver, which are of no big problem if I could switch to tty's (aka console, aka CLI) and kill the bastards. :twisted:

Real problems start from fact that my system won't allow me to switch back to X anymore. If I try this my system hangs up on blank screen (magic SysRq keys still work though).
I'm fairly sure that fglrx is the cause of this, since I had similar problems way back with Ubuntu. I had no such problems with Gentoo before, so I guess some package updates changed something.

Current Specs:
Kernel 2.6.33-r1 (amd64 build).
Xserver 1.6.5-r1
Fglrx 10.3
Radeon HD 4850

Anyone else having this problem? Any fixes to this?
Thanks! ;)

edit: Umm yes, btw I use framebuffer console at 1280x1024 (vga=0x366) if this affects something.

Updated system (actually reinstalled, but it most likely isn't necessary):

Kernel 2.6.34-r6
Xserver 1.7.7-r1
ati-drivers 10.8

No more freezing problems, but now I have a "grey block bug"
EDIT: "grey block bug" has apparently been solved too (see link)
