Trying out Ubuntu, installation went fine - upgraded to the proprietary nVidia drivers but on restart I get a login prompt and the screen is flashing really fast almost as if Xserver is trying to start and failing, I can type when the screen isn't in a "flash" as it were and it's so fast and random it's hard to even type a login name without it missing some characters - this makes typing a password (i.e. not being able to see which characters made it or not) very hard.
I can log back into the live cd and alter my settings - but I can't even find out how to stop X stop starting on boot; Looks like they've moved everything around :-p
I'd like to:
- Stop X from crashing and going insane (if it is actually Xserver)
- Know how to stop X from starting on bootup, Looks like interactive boot is also off by default now
Update: A temporary work around seems to be enabling ssh and just connecting to the box over the network - ssh seems to work fine :-p
