    keyword=problems with adaql2 X server (workaround in place)

    Yesterday adaql2 was frozen so I rebooted it.
    Then the X server would not start.  The xorg.conf file looked ok to me
    and I did not try to change it.
    I suppose some kernel update or software update went wrong.  So I tried
    the next earlier kernel.  Did not help.  Then I tried the earliest
    of the 3 kernels in the list and that worked.
    [adaq@adaql2 ~]$ uname -a
    Linux adaql2.jlab.org 2.6.18-164.2.1.el5 #1 SMP Mon Sep 21 04:37:51 EDT 
    2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    But I had to adjust the resolution by hand using "Applications".
    adaql2 is functional, we can run DAQs there as usual,
    but it needs some further attention.
