Re: Ubuntu 12.04 How many got a Black Screen?
said by Snakeoil:When I ran my upgrade - it appears the screen dimmed after some time out period. I could still see the upgrade status window (baarely) and simply waited for the upgrade to complete - then I rebooted and all was fine
I'm curious as to how many here that went to Ubuntu experienced a Black Screen instead of a log in screen?
I ran into it yesterday when upgrading my Ubuntu install.
»Currently running Ubuntu 11.04, switching to 12.10
I googled and seen many posts about it, but I don't think I've ever seen one here, besides mine.
Is it a problem with Nvidia cards, or lightdm?
What is lightdm.. nm, I googled it read the wiki.
I wonder if it's the older Nvidia cards that have trouble with it.
I have a Geoforce 7600 GT in my PC. My entire PC [both of them, needs to be updated. But I lack the money currently].
Nothin' left to do but smile smile smile
