New in Ubuntu gutsy Gibbon: Bullet Proof-X

Filed under: Ubuntu, X.org — tuxicity @ 7:24 am

A new feature will be implemented in Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon, Bullet Proof-X;

If Xorg fails to start, the failsafe mode will initiate with minimalistic settings, low resolution, and a limited number of colors. The failsafe mode also automatically runs Ubuntu’s new GTK-based display configuration utility so that users can easily test various display settings and choose a configuration that will work properly with their hardware.

some explanation can be found here and some screenshots here.
