I did a clean install '12.04_amd64 3 times with the same results each time. Installation went without problems, I did all my updates, installed aptitude, synaptic, changed server locale, started adding multimedia apps when everything went blank and logged out. No error messages. Login screen only allows guest access. I reinstalled 11.10_amd64-no problems now. Second and third install gave same results. The only root access is by tty. This is the most unusable version I've had in the 6 years I've been using Ubuntu.
