Problems while starting kdm with Kubuntu Hardy

Postby tamoc » Mon Mar 23, 2009 4:09 pm

Hi @ all,

I try to install Kubuntu Hardy and as well the matrox-driver. The installation of both run successfully. But after reboot I get a hacked Matrox-Logo and a distorted kdm-login-screen. If I use the recovery mode in the grub-menu and start the X-System via the root-console with the init-5-command - everything works fine. Has anyone an idea, what's could be the reason for this behavior?

Thanks for all hints!

That's the well known framebuffer issue with the splash screen on ubuntu systems.
To get rid of it, disable the bootsplash by editing the kernel commandline.

Please see [this thread] for an idea about where to change what.
