Riddle me this - sometimes X on this laptop with a Radeon doesn't quite work (90% of the screen is a white block which does render a terminal but not a browser or background)

However, sometimes on a reboot, X comes up just fine and works 100% correctly.

No idea.


This is what it looks like from a screenshot point-of-view, although the black part is white when looking at it on the LCD itself.

Interestingly, even with a terminal window open that renders on the screen, the screenshot tool doesn't capture it, just black.
