View Full Version : [ubuntu] Fresh Install 8.10 Restricted Drivers Break GDM (Need Help)

October 29th, 2008, 05:45 PM
OK Ive successfully reproduced this 3 times now.

After doing a fresh install on a clean HDD I reboot and then do all my updates, reboot again and activate restricted drivers, reboot again and GDM fails to load. Each time it just hangs at the boot process until I hit enter and then it allows me to enter into linux desktop without a GUI that is. I dont know the exact name of it but its the login line from Terminal.

The setup I have worked fine with the restricted drivers in 8.04.

Asus Crosshair Mobo
Nvidia 8800GTX Ultra
Nvidia 7600GT
AMD Phenom 9850 Black
8GB DDR2 Corsair XMS

With that said, any know the script to deactivate the restricted driver from the terminal line? This way i can completely verify if this is indeed the problem. I suppose if after deactivating the restricted drivers GDM will then load and verifying that it is indeed the drivers.
