Xubuntu 7.10 Booting Black Screen after splash instead of desktop login page
have a IBM T20 laptop running Xubuntu 7.10. It can boot up, but it freezes after the loading bar is complete on the splash screen. Completely black screen appears instead of login screen. Can actually login and enter password blindly and hear system startup...but screen remains black.
I have to turn it on and off like 2-3 times before it successfully displays the login screen. After that, i can restart the computer or shut down and start it up with no problem. But after it sits off for a while the same thing occurs. I can tell when it is going to boot fine by when there's some weird colors flickering right before the login page shows.
Is this a known bug,,? anyone else see this one ?
Love the operating system otherwise...
