Black screen after starting X
Normally X works fine on my machine, but after I rebooted this time, it decided to give me a blank screen. I can still switch terminals with Ctrl-Alt-F#, and this is the output of startx:
X: warning; process set to priority -11 instead of requested priority -10 XFree86 Version 126.96.36.199 (Debian 4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge1 20050901212727 firstname.lastname@example.org) Release Date: 15 August 2003 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.6 Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.8-16.0508-2 i686 [ELF] Build Date: 02 September 2005 This version of XFree86 has been extensively modified by the Debian Project, and is not supported by the XFree86 Project, Inc., in any way.

Tough one! No errors, (EE) but it doesn't like something in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libspeedo.a:spencode.o
Maybe check it out and compare to someone elses. I'll see if I can dig up mine on my Etch box for a comparrison.
Wish I could help more...
EDIT:b Ewww! Mine is an extremely long and complicated file! Too much to post here.
Have you done anything at all recently you can think of which might have caused this to happen?
It's cool; I just reinstalled xserver-xfree86 and it worked again. Thanks for the help!
Ugh...the problem's back after rebooting again, and now it seems that xserver-xfree86 is unavailable to me...can anyone help me figure out what's wrong? Thanks in advance!
