Thanks for you fast response!
Unfortunately even that didn't work.
I tried nearly all key combinations with Strg + Alt but nothing
After a (quite long) while the screen turned black and the message
"Begin: Loading essential drivers ... done." appeared.
After several minutes of waiting I did a hard reset.
While being frozen the system responded to ping requests from another
pc. So the system itself seemed to run properly. Something seems to
'mess up' the X-Server or anything else UI-related.
Can anybody give me a hint how to investigate the source of this problem
or would you recommend to just do a fresh install?
I think it is an NVIDIA driver problem. The driver that comes with
Ubuntu 11.10 (280.13), supports your graphics card.
If you use an older Ubuntu version, try downloading version NVIDIA
I just uninstalled the 290.10 driver and installed the recommended one
via jockey ("Additional Drivers") which is version 280.13.
Unfortunately that didn't solve the problem. Opened up several youtube
videos and clicked around and eventually my system, respectively the UI
locked up again
I fear that there's a problem between flash(player) and NVIDIA driver. I
just can remember that this must have started after upgrading to 11.10
and removing those sevenmachines (PPA) flash player version and
installing the one from ubuntu-repos.
I'm on youtube right now, to see the Celtic video, and nothing happens.
I just have a black screen where I should be seeing the damn video. Must
have been the latest updates. Damn... Ok, using synaptic to re-install
adobe flash. Well see if it was a kernel change that blew it up. I'll
restart firefox when it's done.
OK! That was it! Just reinstall flashplugin-downloader ! Enjoy! Ric
Here's a good test subject!
