[8400m] nvidia-graphics-drivers (295.33-0ubuntu1), is causing failed restarts. shutdowns & only a blackscreen on tty's other than tty7
It's possible that this is an extreme corner case, (my hardware), 8400m chipsets in general or a bit more widespread.
So i'm opening this report in case it's one of the latter 2
It occurs like this:
After the install or upgrading to the .20 drivers shutdowns/restarts works as expected.
This lasts for at least 3 normal uses of either, by normal I mean boot up, use the session a bit, then do a shutdown or restart.
Somewhere between the 4 - 8 attepmt either a shutdown or restart fails to complete properly.
Once this occurs it then continues for all subsequent attempts, there may be an occasional exception to that, if needed I can relay, in any event the respite is only temporary, basically a reset of the above
What happens is this -
My normal shut down or restart takes about 2.5 sec's, after clicking either the restart or shutdown button there is a screen flash, then a plymouth splash for 2 sec's, then the machine either shuts down or restarts as normal.
When it fails - as soon as the button is clicked the display is immediately shut off, there is harddrive activity for about 2 sec's, then nothing else.
The machine remains powered on, the harddrive stays spinning, all else is like it was shutdown. Recovery is only possible holding the power button down for 10 sec's to affect a forced power off
Have tested completly here with multiple installs, both from A2 upgraded & any number of installs from the dailies, same exact thing.
Meanwhile this never occurs with the .10 driver, which baring this just 'going away' will be the one I'll use, now & come release
