[Bug 763052] Re: Ubuntu can't boot on nvidia GeForce GT240 with nouveau drivers


I see this problem with the 14.04 LTS Live USB.  On bootup I get a
scrambled screen.  Switch VTs shows it printing out TLB Flush Idle
timeout errors.

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

  I can't boot Ubuntu 10.10 on my PC with NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 (PCIe 16x). Instead login screen I see [attachment DSC00391.JPG].
  Ctrl+Alt+Del and SysRq+B don't work.

  Why Ubuntu use experimental (nouveau) driver?!? :
  xserver-xorg-video-nouveau - X.Org X server -- Nouveau display driver (experimental)

  I must install Ubuntu from alternate CD and boot to text mode and uninstall these packages: nouveau-firmware, xserver-xorg-video-nouveau and install nvidia-current package.

  WORKAROUND: Try boot live cd with "nomodeset" option. It works for me
  on GeForce GT 240.
