View Full Version : [ubuntu] Help needed screen flashing on and off ubuntu 10.04

December 1st, 2010, 05:33 AM

I have been using ubuntu for a few months now and just got a old pc that I thought would be great to use as a dev machine. First off, I did the upgrade to 10.04 since it was in an older version. Everything seemed to go fine, but when I booted and got to the login screen, the pc would not let me log in. It simply was stuck there with the screen turning on and off.

The strange thing is that the xorg.conf file does not look right and when I boot in failsafe graphics mode and make a reconfiguration of the graphics configuration + restart X server everything works fine (until I reboot).

I will post a copy of the xorg.conf file if needed, but I can tell you that the video card is an old Voodoo 3 from 3Dfx (that might just be the problem right there)

Thanks for the help!
