 When I start the phone, the system loaded and the desktop appear, appear
 also the White screen of death. It say me "The gpe process is vanished"
 and so.
 Now sometimes if I click on Exit, the message desappear, and sometimes
 does. When the message doesn't desapper the phone is unusable, but the usb
 link is up, and workin on remote there's no problem.
 This white screen some times appear also during the loading phase, when
 the green square is bouncing left and right. I've updated many times but
 the problem persist.

 Now I give you some infos.
 I've the Freerunner with the 2008.8 with last updates. I've the 2008.8
 repository (all) and the Multiverse repository.

 I've attached the opkg list_installed and teh dmesg
