After upgrading to 10.04 I fail to start the system, the screen is blank, not even a console is available.

From reading this forum I understand that my old grafic card is not supported anymore. But I do wonder why using the basic failsafe variant doesn't work either.

Using the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter I at least manage to reach a console. So I was able to save the logfiles Xorg produces, see the attached files.

Any ideas what is happening and how can get my system up again?
