    11.10 freezes after restarting

    I upgraded 11.04 to 11.10. After restarting it freezes on the Ubuntu logo screen. I rebooted (Ctrl+Alt+Del) several times and nothing has changed.

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    I have had real problems with the upgrade too. At what stage does it freeze ? I thought that mine was frozen as I had a black screen, but if I did a Ctrl-Alt-F1 then a Ctrl-Alt-Del, then it rebooted and went throught the same cycle. With me it was the graphics driver.

    Yes... The correct thing to do would be to boot into a TTY Text Console or a LiveCD...

    A LiveCD would be easier. Once you boot into the Live OS Image (Try) > Places > Open your partition where you have Ubuntu installed > Navigate to /var/log/xorg.0.log > open it with the text editor.

    Open a browser and post that file here. (remember to put them inside code tags.) That will tell us what is loading and if anything failed.

    What may be needed besides the results of that is info on your video card... From a terminal session:
    Code:
    lspci -vnn | grep VGA
    Togetther, they would tell us what you have and if there are the correct drivers installed for it. Some older drivers, even though for yuor card, do not work with unity nor gnome3.

    --- Just for further Info ---
    If it is not in your graphics driver (which it usually is and is suspected first), then if something else, we would them need to see the syslog and dmsg log...

    Re: 11.10 freezes after restarting

    Many thanks for the reply, MAFoElffen.

    I did as you said, but after entering "sudo apt-get install nvidia-current" it told me that "nvidia-current is already the newest version."

    After entering "sudo service lightdm start" a whole bunch of text appeared on the screen, but it eventually just froze.

    One of the things which appears a lot is what I think is the driver for my canon printer (I hope I've copied correctly): "udeva[393]:SYSFS{}=will be removed in a future udev version, please use ATTR{}=to match the event device, or ATTR{}=to match a print device, in /etc/udev/rules.d/80-canon-mfp.rules:35". This goes on for a bit with the last number changing for each entry.Could be unrelated to the problem though.

    By the way, it's a dual-boot machine with Windows 7, both 64-bit, and this is an upgrade from 11.04.

    Can one try a non-nvidia driver perhaps? How does one do that?

    Re: 11.10 freezes after restarting

    I could "resolve" the problem. Here is what I did:

    My problem was that yesterday I was with Ubuntu 11.10 and today it didn't started saying FAIL in a line about a runlevel V or something the most of the time I tried.

    So instead starting using the default first entry in GRUB (kernel 3...)
    I used the second entry (kernel 3 (recovery mode or something ...

    And then a new window with some options and I choose the first one that
    said "resume ...."

    And ubuntu started. Then I opened the "Additional Drives" program and there I had two drivers:

    1): NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended]
    2): NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (post-release updates) (version current-updates)

    I was using the second. I deactivated it and now ubuntu 11.10 starts without any problem.

    I am going now to try the first driver. I have a GTX460 and I need its GPU power for rendering (it has 336 processors) so I would have to go back to 11.04 if none of these two drivers works.

    I will post what happens with first driver.

    Re: 11.10 freezes after restarting

    Well I tried the first Nvidia driver in Additional Drivers as said above and now ubuntu is working flawlesly apparently.
    We will see if it continues working or hangs tomorrow.

    So, the second driver from Nvidia in Additional drivers seems be the problem that people is having (perhaps using the terminal to install the driver is installing the second?). Use Additional drivers app and install first one.

    Unfortunately for me, this doesn't start ubuntu for me.

    Good luck. It looks like your system is working now.
