Before gdm gets loaded you'll see a cross-mouse-pointer on top on a wite screen with a lot of black dots.

This will be displayed in normal hdd installation for around 2 seconds.
During livecd mode it takes around 10 sec.

Mostly for flatpanel screens this isn't good.

In other distros the white screen with black dots has a standard color like blue.

Is there a way to fix this?

One possibility would be to start X with -br, that will just display a black background.

And where should I add the -br switch to test it?

So this is the fix:

/usr/bin/X

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
if [ "$USE_XGL" = "TRUE" ]
then
exec /usr/bin/Xgl $XGL_OPTS "$@" -br
else
exec /usr/bin/Xorg "$@" -br
fi


The -br switch changes the blackscreen with white dots to a full blackscreen.
Now my flatpanel dont get hurt every xstart

Hope it will be added to the xscript soon.
