Bug reports, using them

Just as a heads up, look into the debian bug reports. I recently had a problem with my xorg and swtiching to the console. I couldn't find anything on google, and noone seemed to know the answer to my question here. I then went to the debian bug reports site, and there was my problem, and it had been solved! People had helped me diagnose the problem, but there was noone here to solve it. Seriously, looking at the debian bug reports helps!

**NOTE**I'm sure this works for other distros as well, but I only know debian. Sorry!!
