corrupted X gets allright when Photon Plus pendrive inserted!


Hi!

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 on my Acer Aspire 5100 laptop. Normally, when I put it to suspend to disk mode, it fails to wake up cleanly. I mean, it wakes up but the X is corrupted with lot of flickering. Ctrl + alt + backspace doesn't set it right. But when I insert my Photon Plus Broadband pendrive into the USB, the flickering immediately disappears and I am presented with the clean, shiny desktop. The problem is that the flickering doesn't stop until I insert the pendrive.

Can anyone suggest what is going on?

How are your input devices defined in your xorg.conf?

Also, if you are using udev, is your Pendrive defined in the 'persistent' rules files in /etc/udev/rules.d?

HTH.

Hi,

/etc/udev/rules.d contains only two files -

1) 70-persistent-cd.rules and
2) 70-persistent-net.rues

there is no file corresponding to pendrive.
