View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cannot drop to console in 10.04

May 1st, 2010, 07:23 AM
After 10.04 upgrade I cannot drop to console, as well as the gnome UI takes overly long to load, letting me stare at my background for 10 seconds before arriving.

Let me start off by saying my machine would not even boot when using the nouveau driver. After successfully installing the normal nvidia driver I was then able to get to my desktop.


I cannot view any of the console's that are not using X
(F1 F2 etc) None of these work, previously I received invalid input on the nouveau driver but now when i drop to console I am met with a black screen and no display until I return to the one using X.

I suspect it is using an impossible resolution with the consoles but I cannot figure out how to fix it. grub seems to be ignored for display resolution.

I am using a TV/monitor that is 1360x768 @ 60hz

Bumping again, any better support placement suggestions. This is clearly a 10.04 issue though.
