Re: ATI & Nvidia: no X, just blinking on 2.6.31 (Karmic 9.10)
Then we are definitely talking about two separate issues here - one with nvidia which does not correctly compile into the 2.6.31 kernel as far as the included 185.xx drivers are concerned, and the other with gdm, which respawns eternally after a failure to find the proprietary drivers and does not fall back onto vesa. I hope these issues shall be fixed soon - the gdm issue, and that the newer 190.xx drivers which do not have the powermizer issue be included in the karmic upgrade. And then I shall proceed to have a taste of karmic before lynx!
