I've installed karmic a couple of times and each time after a couple of reboots I boot to a black screen. This is an Acer Aspire 5672. Any ideas? I'm about to go back to jaunty.

I had the same problem in beta. Disabling compiz fixed my issue.

Thanks for the reply. I should have explained my problem better. I never get to a login screen. I hear the drums which precede the login screen but never get the login screen itself. Maybe I don't understand something but it seems like this wouldn't involve compiz. Maybe the ATI driver is flaky. I have an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 card in my laptop. I've gone back to jaunty as I don't have this problem with it.
