I did a clean install and after installing updates and drivers (Nvidia VGA) for a 460GTX, I'm shown a black screen with various Stopping/Starting messages. The last of these messages is different (this time it's "Stopping save kernel messages") every time I try and boot up the system. Logging into tty1 and doing
sudo startx or
start lightdm works. Nvidia drivers seem to be working.
Some things I've tried or noticed.
- Problem seems to start after installing Nvidia drivers.
cat /etc/X11/default-display-managerspits out
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdmgives me DPKG_MAINTSCRIPT_NAME and PACKAGE missing.
- Also restored lightdm settings and reinstalled it.
