Azelphurhaving a fun issue on Ubuntu 16.10, turn machine on, it boots, I can see the wallpaper, screen flickers on for about 500ms, before turning off for around 3 seconds, then repeating. Checked xorg and lightdm logs but nothing is going on in them. any ideas?19:44
davmor2Azelphur: what's the graphics stack?20:00
Azelphurdavmor2: just a radeon r9 390 on the open source drivers20:04
davmor2Azelphur: hmm not sure then sorry, only thing I can think of is to maybe have a look in systemctl rather than the logs if you can20:05
AzelphurI was looking in systemctl for lightdm20:06
AzelphurCan you look at systemctl for X?20:06
davmor2Azelphur: more general issues than specifically for x but I think it will tell you if x crash, other thing would be to check /var/crash20:07
Azelphurdavmor2: empty directory :(20:11
Azelphurdavmor2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsV8Z-qe0EY for reference, flickering starts after it boots at 50 seconds-ish20:13
popeyAzelphur: did you say it logs in then you see the flicker?20:18
popeyor crapping out at login screen?20:18
Azelphurnah, it's crapping out at the login screen20:18
Azelphuralthough I can't remember if I set it to automatically login20:18
popeyYeah, I'd be inclined to look in the usual /var/log places20:20
popeybut also if you have autologin, look in ~/.xsession-errors.log (I think it's called)20:20
Azelphurpopey: that unity-settings-daemon stuff looks dodgy, https://dpaste.de/vB0k20:28
popeyAzelphur: there's an askubuntu question about resetting unity somewhere20:32

popeyno idea about ATI/AMD, sory20:34
AzelphurThere's a PPA for newer kernels right? might try bumping onto that20:34
lubotu3The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds20:34
