I updated from 10.04 to 10.10 (32 bit desktop) this afternoon. The update went just fine, but now the system will only boot into tty. Running startx gives an message saying

Fatal server error: no screens found

I've run dpkg-reconfigure gdm to no avail.

Mysteriously, this morning it works. I have no idea why, but all appears to be back to normal.
