(X) ubuntu 12.10 - ATI card, black screen after nomodeset
The fact: I've a notebook with an ATI Radeon 9100 IGP as video card. If KMS is enabled i get freezes. The solution is to disable KMS in GRUB adding "nomodeset". Ok up to Ubuntu 12.04.
The problem: I've installed the new Xubuntu 12.10, kernel 126.96.36.199-generic. Again, if KMS is enabled i get freezes. This time, the "nomodeset" produces a black screen at startup (it's like a pseudo-stanby). In other words, the desktop is not shown.
Any possible solution?
Thanks in advance,
