Description Mikhail 2012-04-11 05:47:19 UTC
Description of problem:
After upgrade gdm  to graphics desktop stay is unusable.
After boot I see only artifacts and impossible to enter into console via Ctrl - Alt - Fn keys.

Now I downgraded to version and graphics desktop begins work.

On another machine also same problem.
Downgraded to version for work.
Machines unite ATI video card.

Steps how to reproduce:
boot system, X shows a short time, goes away, screen goes dark. I was able to switch to consoles. 
After downgrade to system works as expected.
