I need help disabling Kernel Mode Setting!
First, I would like to say thank you to all those who reply to this. Now then, I really need to have an up-to-date installation guide for installing Ubuntu with the "nomodeset" GRUB/Kernel boot argument. I have an ATI Radeon X1350 Pro that has always caused me trouble regardless of which distro I use (I have used Ubuntu 10.04 as well as OpenSUSE 11.3 on the machine in question). Over at the OpenSUSE forums, I was informed that the issue I had experienced, which was a blank screen at boot up, was caused by my graphics card's incompatibility with Kernel Mode Setting. So OpenSUSE 11.4 is out, and after using OpenSUSE and KDE for a while I kind of want to go back to GNOME and Ubuntu. However, the KMS issues that I was having are still a problem. So I was wondering if anyone has an installation guide for Ubuntu 10.10 that includes steps to disable KMS, since OpenSUSE has a graphical tool for changing the Kernel Parameters I'm not exactly sure how to add "nomodeset" to my Kernel Parameters. Once again, any and all help is greatly appreciated!
