[ubuntu] Issues with 12.10 and NVidia

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – When I try Ubuntu without installing only "nomodeset" works, otherwise the display is just garbled. Now I installed 12.10 on a partition, when I let it boot up it comes up with noveau failed to idle channel 2/3. I had to update grub manually and now there is no option for "safe mode". I tried editing the grub command with "nomodeset" and "--nomodeset" but both are not recognized. So now when I boot it up it never goes out of textmode and i never get to the log in screen. I'm sure once I get to the proper desktop enviroment I can permantly fix it by (Hardware)
