    Acer Extensa 4420 hangs with kernel 3.2

    Nov 24 17:28:56 ventrical-Extensa-4420 kernel: [ 18.524507] [drm] TV1: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1
    Nov 24 17:28:56 ventrical-Extensa-4420 kernel: [ 18.538510] [drm] Radeon display connector VGA-1: No monitor connected or invalid EDID
    Nov 24 17:28:56 ventrical-Extensa-4420 kernel: [ 18.581775]

    I was able to go back to 3.0-0.13 and gather the above. I have no screen or terminal with that (64bit) kernel.

    Stating the obvious here but it sounds like a regression in the kernel with the radeon module.
    This is not a signature.

    The same topic has been discussed here elsewhere too.
    The same results.

    BTW, rc3 of the kernel 3.2 is out now.

    @harry33,jordanwb

    Could you walk me through on how to remove the 3.2 kernel and post a link for the new rc kernel ??

    thanks

    Well here is the new 3.2 rc3 kernel (PP repos):
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise...inux/3.2.0-2.4

    To remove 3.2 kernels, you need to have older (like 3.1) installed first.
    Get it from here:
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/3.1.0-2.3

    Then reboot and from the grub choose that 3.1 kernel.
    Then it is perhaps the easiest way to uninstall 3.2 kernel (three packages per version) with Synaptic.

    Note that if you play a lot with different kernel versions, you should uninstall the kernel meta packages. You don't need them anyway. They are only used to enable automatic upgrading of the kernel.

    harry33,

    I cannot figure out how to line up that link. Could you please present those 3.1.0-2.3 like you did here for 3.2:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...9&postcount=11

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...9&postcount=11

    because when I go to those launchpad links I can't find those files that we are supposed to download.


    thanks again...

    I don't mean to be a pest...

    @harry33 and all,

    I had just recently realized that I had forgotten to upgrade my repositories to Precise BEFORE I had installed the 3.2 kernel.

    My apologies if I had inconvenienced anyone.

    Thanks also for links

    The kernel 3.2 rc3 is in Precise repos now.

    The problem I think is definitly the fglrx restricted drivers. By default they are not installed along with the 64bit package (it appears) . I keep falling back into Unity 2D.

    I ran the code:

    sudo apt-get install fglrx and got the following output:

    Code:
    ventrical@ventrical-Extensa-4420:~$ sudo apt-get install fglrx

    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    The following extra packages will be installed:

    So all is working except for the ATi Radeon driver. I have:01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS690M [Radeon X1200 Series]


    Are there any ideas on how to install this correctly or , as it has been mentioned, are there still problems with the current drivers/repos?

    thanks in advance..
