http://ubuntuforums.org – I've come across what appears to be a strange problem with one of the VirtualBox host drivers. The behavior I observe is that, on the second reboot after installing VBox on Ubuntu 12.10, xorg will not start due to a drm error with the intel video driver. Here's the relevant snippet from the Xorg.1.log file: [ 397.887] (WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa [ 397.887] (WW) Falling back to old probe method for modesetting [ 397.887] (WW) Falling back to old probe method for fbdev [ 397.887] (II) Loading sub module "fbdevhw" [ 397.887] (II) LoadModule: &quot (Hardware)
