nfsnobodyhi all. I updated my nvidia card drivers and my xubuntu 17.10 install is now failing to boot - normal boot just goes to a blank screen (even with nomodeset). I can however log into recovery with networking and get a root shell up00:16
nfsnobodyCan anyone point me in the right direction?00:16
nfsnobodyI should note I attemped to uninstall nvidia drivers and reinstall 340/reinstall nouveau packages, to no effect00:17

good_cookieshi. is it possible to install python3.6 on xubuntu 16.04? how?11:48
rick_heed hlelp11:50
knomerick_, ask the question...11:50
knomegood_cookies, if it's not in the repositories, the next easiest thing would be a PPA or if that doesn't work and you really need that version, you can build from the source...11:51
good_cookiesterminal says me scary things. like system will break when i trying to add PPA. is it ok to go with it?11:52
rick_ language support not open11:52
knomegood_cookies, PPA's are always at your own risk - it's possible that it can break your system11:54
knomegood_cookies, you need to consider how much you need that version, how ready you are to fix potential issues with it11:55
flux242yeah, installing official ubuntu kernel driver can also brick your computer11:55
good_cookiescan i have both versions of python then?11:55
knomeflux242, how "funny" - at least ubuntu developers are then doing their best to fix it - PPA maintainers likely not11:56
knomegood_cookies, if you build it from source, then yes with caveats11:56
knomegood_cookies, if you install from a PPA, nope11:56
good_cookieswhat is the difference?11:57
flux242ubuntu so called developers should not fuck up at this scale. Was there any other distro affected? No?11:57
knomeif you don't know, then i'd say only the PPA option is realistic for you11:57
knomeflux242, can you take this discussion elsewhere as it's not exactly xubuntu support?11:57
knomeflux242, also please remember this is a family friendly channel11:58
rick_language support in xubuntu closed down11:58
knomerick_, does not open - closed down - what does that mean?11:58
good_cookies#join xubuntu-offtopic11:58
