In my case, on several distros (Fedora, OpenSuse, Pardus) and with default settings, X shows a pretty dark screen when launched, and then the computer becomes unresponsive (ie Ctl+Alt+Fx things won't work, power button won't shut the machine down, and so on).

Tried to update NVidia and intel drivers to the latest release, no luck. Tried to force X to use the nvidia proprietary driver, no luck (no card detected). Tried with intel, no luck either (same symptom). 640x480 generic driver (VGA ?) kind of works, but it's just useless (insanely high screen brightness that can't be changed, eats up a fully charged battery in less than 2 hours, no room on screen, ugliness).

So I'll just consider that support for my hardware is not ready yet ;) Some years ago, I'd have fought with the command line until it works, but now I'm tired of this : either it works out of the box/with simple fixes or it doesn't work.
