Yestesday, a little update for the Ubuntu 12.10. I didn't reboot the
system immediatly and this morning, Bang! Nothing works. GNOME is unable
to display anything without crashing.
After a moment, because I didn't understand the problem origin, I drop an eye to the system log with
dmsg and everything is clear now. I noticed a call to OpenGL which made the crash.
OK! Think! Think! Think!
I forgot that I installed the ATI proprietary drivers not the free drivers.
I switch into TTY with
Alt + Ctrl + F1. Damned! Where are that fraking drivers! I restart the installer with:
$ sudo ./amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.1-linux-x86.x86_64.run
Thanks AMD for this installer. It can run in TTY mode. Reboot, everything work now.
I have to think, on each Linux kernel update to reinstall the ATI drivers.
