electricprismI just updated my saucy and after login there's only a black screen, no panel, no window borders or desktop - anyone have any idea what could be wrong04:42
wilee-nilee!nomodeset | electricprism might be a missing graphic driver04:43
ubottuelectricprism might be a missing graphic driver: 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 parameter04:43
wilee-nileeelectricprism, Update or upgrade, have you used a driver from a manufacturer rather than the repos?04:44
electricprismwilee-nilee: yes, NVIDIA-Linux-x86-219.23.run04:44
electricprismwilee-nilee: I'm looking into the link you sent i'll try to investigate the nomodeset in the grub file04:45
wilee-nileeelectricprism, If you use a driver from nvidia, which your advised not to it wont follow a kernel upgrade, the ones in the repos do.04:46
electricprismwilee-nilee, so how would I go about uninstalling the binary driver and then installing the one from the repo04:47
electricprismwilee-nilee: It also looks like nomodeset wasn't in my /etc/default/grub - maybe the update adjusted it out of the file as I installed 13.10 with nomodeset on04:47
wilee-nileeelectricprism, That I'm  not up on I have never had to install a graphic driver, I basically know what I have had to do.04:47
electricprismthat's okay, and thank you04:48
wilee-nileeelectricprism, nomodeset would not be there unless you put it there and saved it.04:48
wilee-nileeelectricprism, Basically adding it to grub is a per-session boot to get you in and check the drivers.04:48
electricprismwilee-nilee: Oh, i see. the Live CD wouldn't even boot without it since Nouveau hates me04:49
electricprismwilee-nilee: cool, i suppose I should try rebooting and see if i get in, curren't im just using DISPLAY=:0 x-chat04:49
electricprismthank you again04:49
wilee-nileeelectricprism, Yeah I have seen enough of others problems to just avoid nvidia in general, I don't really need what a higher grade card gives.04:49
wilee-nileeno problem04:50
