Been at it for 4 hours trying to get it to work, I looked at numerous complaints about crashes in hopes of solution but nothing worked.
At the login screen, the only thing i can move for the first 10 seconds is the mouse, everything else is frozen and i can't click on any of it. After 10 seconds everything including the mouse freezes and a black screen with text shows up that says
GPU lockup - switching to software fbcon
After that it continuously says
Failed to idle channel 1 PFIFO - playlist update failed Failed to idle channel 2
OVER and over again, 5 seconds on the black screen it blinks into the sign in screen for 4 seconds, the goes back and throws the messages above at me.
I have tried installing priority drivers I have tried numerous things with coding, nothing has worked
More information: i have GTX 580 installed, 8 GB of RAM, 64 bit version.
I got ubuntu started but I was never able to enter through the login.
So I have to use the CD install and set
I have tried numerous things with the terminal, trying to install the graphics drivers manually.
Everything i do seems to reset when i reboot, as if it never happend. So all in all, proprietary drivers never take effect because they reset on reboot no matter what i try to do.
