- We wrote a new page to list [[known issues with graphics
  cards|support/known_issues/graphics]]. Combined with the better error message
  when GDM fails to start that we introduced in [[Tails 3.6|news/version_3.6]],
  it should gradually improve a lot the experience of people who cannot start
  Tails with their graphics card.
