Hi dear forum,
I've been trying to get a new wireless adapter to work with ubuntu 12.10, and in that process I installed kernel 3.8 and compat-drivers 3.8 from source. I've written some about that in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...e=4&p=12541242.
The 3.8 kernel worked fine, the problems started after I installed compat-drivers. The grapics wont work, not even switching to terminal. When I start the recovery root console and try to start X it crashes.
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE
(EE) intel(0): failed to get resources: Invalid argument
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Fatal server error: no screens found (EE)
I have never had to wrestle with graphics drivers on this level before, so I don't know what to do. Any suggestions would be welcome.
