X cannot start after upgrade to Karmic
I have updated my Ubuntu to Karmik 2 days ago.
I had nvidia drivers 96 installed WORKING in Jaunty, and now it load up the system and show the ubuntu logo white on black, then it show a "flashing" shell prompt.
It looks like gdm tries to start X in an infinite loop and X crashes everytime to the shell. I press CTRL+ALT+CANC and the system reboot.
Accessing in recovery mode, i delete the xorg.conf, reboot and then ubuntu working fine with mesa driver (but no dri).
I saw other bugs posted much like this one, but they result fixed.
The package with module actually compile and load on kernel 2.6.31-14-generic, but it looks like it's not compatible with last xorg server or some of its components. I tried reinstall, but didn't work.
