Bug Description


It's a problem since Ubuntu 9.10.
The live cd and the base install is frozen during boot, you can see
the Ubuntu logo and then nothing, you only can turn off the PC.
I can install the system only with the alternate cd and I have to
boot first time with rescue mode to get a root promt and install the
nvidia proprietary driver and make an xorg.conf file in the /etc
with driver nvidia or only make a falesafe xorg.conf with the vesa
driver (vesa only probe with ubuntu 9.10 not 10.04 but it works surley
under 10.04 also).
My GPU is nothing extra, it's an nvidia 9600GT. Under 9.04 there is
no problem, the live cd and base install is work fine.

Thanks you for your help (and sorry if my english is not so good).

That is a problem to me, too. I use nVidia 9600GT as well. The problem might be cuased switching to the open source driver "nouvea".

I am searching methods to solve the problem, and I accendently see this bug report. There are somebodies saying that replacing "quiet splash" to "nomedeset" might lead you to a low graphic mode successfully.

I will give a try later.

OK, that really works.
