bug #129910 tty are active but display nothing in Gutsy
 
I'd suggest you follow the various advice given in the comments.

Obviously nobody is interested in getting this bug fixed (well, not the
developers at least), although the fix is trivial and the bug rather serious.

Oh, actually, wait, I've asked the kernel team several time and got an answer:
'just remove vga= from your startup kernel command line'

Hope that helps.
Cheers,

Albin

The problem is that I am affected by this bug (or at least a very
similar one in symptoms), but have no vga= in /boot/grub/menu.lst on
kernel lines.

Also, modprobe of the suggested modules does not help at all for me.
So I will stop making my bug a duplicate of bug #129910.

My bug is:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/162400

I can understand that the answer you get is simply remove vga= from
startup kernel command line. Many people wrongly think that this
reflect the resolution of the screen in X, but AFAIK only change
splash screen, and now I realise TTY screens.
Indeed, this make it an easy workaround, and I would use it if not for
the fact that I am already using it with no success. :-)
