View Full Version : [ubuntu] "You passed an undefined mode number" Error after update to 2.6.27-9 Kernal

November 27th, 2008, 09:31 PM
When I boot to the new kernal I get a screen that says

You passed an undefined mode number

Press <RETURN> to see video modes available, <SPACE> to continue or wait
30 secs

(I'm a linux noob so please take that into consideration)

I believe you should either use the previous kernel or upgrade to 2.6.27-10. There seems to be a problem with your kernel. I haven't seen anything like that since the 2.4 kernels. It is asking you to set the console resolution.
