View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem Installing 10.04 RC

April 24th, 2010, 08:38 PM
My problem seems to related to the open source radeon driver. My video card is an Radeon HD2600 Pro.

During the installation process my screen goes blank and my monitor shuts off. This happens specifically on what seems to be the loading screen, Ubuntu spelled out with moving dots below it. I managed to get 10.04 working by installing a fresh copy of 9.10 and upgrading. However, the same thing happened upon loading, that is screen went blank and monitor shut off. I loaded recovery mode and managed to get the ATI restricted driver installed, problem solved. Only not, because the driver issue prevents me from installing a fresh copy of 10.04.

This is a strange problem for me. The open source radeon driver worked fine in 9.10. What changed between 9.10 and 10.04 that caused the problem. And more importantly, how do I fix it. Any ideas?
