    Cool Getting black screen while using Lucid Lynx

    I just installed the beta version, i previously had Ubuntu 9.10 but i didn't like it because it didn't work well with my graphics card. Lucid seems to have still the same problem at that. but i have another new problem, whenever i opened like 3 or 4 things taking up the memory or slowing down the computer the computer hangs and then brings a blank black screen. I'm then left with no choice but to force shutdown.

    The bug report says something about apport-gpu-error-intel.py crashing, could anyone help me? can't find any thread related to this.

    Moved to the Lucid Testing Forums.

    As you know, lucid is still in Beta.

    Re: Getting black screen while using Lucid Lynx

    I found two bug reports on Launchpad:

    This one is a few days older, but worth the read, as it explains what is really causing the problem:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...el/+bug/530650

    This one is a newer one that you may want to subscribe to:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...el/+bug/539533

    You may want to make sure you have all the current updates - I've had quite a few today. That may cure the problem. If not, see the abovebug reports:

    It's not a fix, but it's the best I could find...I hope it helps.

    Well, as it is a beta I would file a bug report. Be sure to include details on your hardware and (xorg) logs.
