Re: error: no server is specified / error: no suitable video mode found

Hello Randy,

thank you for the good find. The bug report really looks like the problem I'm 
having. However it seems like the bug was introduced in version 2.06-6 of 
Debian. Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu, which seems to be using an older 
version. I'm using 2.06-2ubuntu7.1 and 2.06-2ubuntu14.1.

I double checked the grub.cfg and the function "load_video" should be loaded. 
Even though I can't tell if and when "x$feature_all_video_module = xy" is true 
or not.

Best regards
