    I having this same issue. Another thing I have noticed is that trying to change to lower resolution (to overcome needing to scroll the window) kills X. I am not sure if this is a Parallels Desktop or Backtrack issue. If I find anything, I'll let you know. Anyone with knowledge on this, please let us know. Thanks!

    I've been reading about the Intel 950 GMA from their website and it uses the 945GM Chipset, which needs a seperate driver. Their linux drivers website (intellinuxgraphics.org) has the download. I am going to install and test it. I'll let you know once I find out more.

    I downloaded the TGZ intel driver for its simplicity of installing (due to Backtrack's Slackware base). However, after installing it, X will no longer load. I will keep you posted as I resolve that issue.

    As I said in the other thread:
    BackTrack is Slax-based which is in turn Slackware-based, so there is an additional iteration there that could be causing problems.
