soreaunomodeset is a kernel parameter. /msg blah blah is something you type here on IRC11:14
hmhmmm... I will try it11:14
shadeslayeri was getting this last night : http://paste.kde.org/126601/11:14
soreau<ubottu> A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter11:14
shadeslayeri was trying to boot kubuntu under EFI mode, with nomodeset and blacklisted the fglrx/radeon driver ( Macbook Pro 8,2 )11:15
shadeslayerany ideas how to fix? ( I think i need to recompile my kernel with the dual channel lvds patch )11:16
soreaushadeslayer: blacklisting fglrx is not enough11:17
shadeslayersoreau: ok, what else?11:17
soreauyou need to uninstall it completely for radeon to work11:17
shadeslayerno no, i don't want to power on discrete graphics :)11:17
soreaualternatively, you can disable the intel chip if its an option in your bios11:17
shadeslayersoreau: don't have a BIOS :P11:17
shadeslayerMacbook's have EFI11:18
soreauOh mac11:18
