Bug Description

Let me start by saying thanks for your work on this great free product.

Info on my problem:
-My video card is a RIVA TNT PCI card.
-I installed command-line-only Ubuntu from the Alternate install CD.
-It displayed correctly when I used an S3 PCI (AKA McFlicker) video card.
-I am using Ubuntu 9.04
-The characters display perfectly before Ubuntu loading begins
-I am able to at least see the whole screen if I force grub to load vga=261 (VESA 256 color mode).

Please let me know if you need any further information.

Hi Will,
thanks for reporting this bug, two questions are left for me:
Which driver do you use for this GPU? Have you nvidia-glx-71 installed (which looks like the correct package for this GPU)

I installed nvidia-glx-71 using apt-get and I still have the problem after reboot.
