    black screen with Backtrack 2


    Hi all!

    i just downloaded and burned Backtrack 2!

    it succesfully boots on my laptop but when i type startx or flux, i get a black screen! and the crtl+alt+plus doesn't changes anything!

    i have the same black screen if i type ati, but the xconf goes well.

    so i have to force reboot, and i don't like doing it =/

    i hope to find a solution with your help!

    PS: i'm french ^^ sorry for the bad english


    EDIT: tested on an other pc, it works well... but i want to use it on my laptop ='(

    Backtrak is Alackware based if i'm not wrong , and almost all the Slackware based distro doesn't contains useful script to configure X , so you have to do it so by editing the xorg.conf file , or post your vga model.

    But this is Strange that you can't switch back to console by typing ctl+alt+f1 !
