Bug Description

Gnome Startup Fails (However Failsafe Starts), After Upgrading From A Vanilla 8.04 Install.

It does NOT report a failed message, however, all that is seen is a totally white screen. Gnome never loads.

Hardware I am Using:

Motherboard: GA-MA78GM-S2H

Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 3200

As far as I know, there are both free drivers and proprietary drivers for this graphics card. The free drivers do not support xgl, aiglx etc. I was using the proprietary (restricted) hardware drivers upon intrepid ibex install.

A cd was not used, I used the update manager.

If anyone has any questions, i can be emailed at:

This is not a bug about bughelper but about the Ubuntu distribution and it is probably related to your video driver so I am assigning it to the Xorg package.

Changed in bughelper:

Do you mean upgrading from 8.04 to development 8.10? If so X is broken
in 8.10 at this time.
