maybe you could try the vesa drive in xorg.conf ? I have a S3 in my laptop and I have to use the vesa driver, the unichrome drive doesn't work very well for me. But if it's only giving trouble when you shut down you could try and shell out Ctl-Alt-Fx (execpt 1, then new Xorg terminal) and run
Best of Luck,
Hi buddy sorry for th delay I have been away from home for a while.
Ok, so when I shutdown from F10 (I am now using Gnome), I just get a black screen flickering madly, there is no splash screen and it looks like there is a bit of white text at the top of the black screen but it's flickering so crazy I cannot read it.
Is there anyway to access a system log or something to see what exactly is causing the problem. I am VERY VERY new to linux any help will have to be very basic.
PS: How do I install the 'VESA' driver?
