View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem starting ubuntu 8.10(.9)

December 5th, 2008, 01:02 AM
Hello everyone,

I have a problem starting Ubuntu 8.10.9
The first screen with the progress bar is shown normally but when it passes to the next screen that eventually will show the login screen I only get a black screen.
The keyb seems to work (I can press ctrl-alt-del to restart)
Also I can load the failsafe version and get a console.

I have the suspicion that my VGA card causes the problem and I would like to deactivate the current drivers & settings.

How can I do that from the failsafe version?

ps: Other ideas are also welcome...

Thank you
