I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with ATI proprietary FGLRX graphic drivers
When I boot, I can see this very quick message appearing; I don't have time to read it:

**Fatal Error ..................................**(&@something i cant read)  

I searched through the log file in /var/log/ in order to find what is wrong and I did find something in the /var/log/Xorg.1.log:

[    15.734] (--) using VT number 1

[   204.647] 
Fatal server error:
[   204.647] xf86OpenConsole: VT_WAITACTIVE failed: Interrupted system call  
[   204.647]   
[   204.647]   
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at
 for help.   
[   204.647] Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.1.log" for
 additional information.  
[   204.647]  

But this is already Xorg.1.log. And there is a Xorg.0.log also & Xorg.0.log.old but it doesnt have any error in it.

My system seems to work properly and it seems its not affected by this
But how do I correct this message? Any suggestions?

The workaround is very simple, adds a sleep command to kdm.conf file.
