  If you are logging into a text console... then it is very likely the X
server trying to start up, but the configuration for X is broken in some
way so the X server dies.  The screen blinks black when X tries to
change which terminal is on the screen to itself then when X dies it
switches back.  Look in /var/log/XFree*.log for more information about
what is killing X.
