Personally I would remove everything after the 'ro' and only try the 'nomodeset quiet' first.  (after the 'ro' means leave the 'ro' there!)  Then experiment from there.  I've never seen so many entries before.  The bit with the radeon and the nouveau are not necessary as far as I know, especially with you having the Intel 4000 graphics chip set.  I feel your pain however, I have the "Sandybridge" chipset with nvidia's terrible "Optimus" hybrid setup.  (intel/nvidia combo card sharing a GPU)  It was a giant pain to figure out.  You might also want to try to play around with your xorg.conf file.  Another idea would be to drop to tty1 and sudo su, run smxi and let it re-install you intel graphics.  That worked in the past for me when I hosed my system trying a beta driver from nvidia.

Will try that, but for the lightdm issue I`ve found this bug, and I guess it`s what causes some of my issues. They post 3 workarounds that I`m going to try...

@ew, the line I'm referring to should only have "ro quiet" at the end of it.  The one you talking about is totally normal and doesn't need to be altered in any way.  Between the 'ro' and the 'quiet' is where you want to make the additions I was referring to.  Sure like to see you be able to get this resolved.  Good luck!!!!  :)

I understand, but it is the same line....
Here is the menuentry in boot/grub.cfg...
Code: [Select]
menuentry 'VSIDO GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.7-trunk-amd64' --class vsido --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-3.7-trunk-amd64-advanced-51aa2651-5b7f-4f34-a604-9f2eb6b1455b' {

insmod ext2

  search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 51aa2651-5b7f-4f34-a604-9f2eb6b1455b
echo 'Loading Linux 3.7-trunk-amd64 ...'

echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'

The recovery entry has just "ro single", but the normal entry has every thing you see above...

Well, only if it works!  ???

I just saw your reply. A bit busy lately, haven`t been able to get much computertime.

Anyway, I took a look at the kernel line for VSIDO, and it contains a lot:
".. ro noapic nodma nomce nolapic pci=nomsi nomodeset rade\
on.modeset=0 nouveau.modeset=0 nosmp vga=normal"

My graphics is intel hdgraphics 4000 (ivy bridge)

Perhaps all those settings is what makes VSIDO boot for me, because it is the only 3.7 kernel that has booted for me.
I tried booting with just "ro nomodeset", and it booted just fine, but it doesn`t help me with the logout/reboot/shutdown issue. Regardless how I try to exit, I just get a black screen. Doesn`t help using command-line to shut down/reboot/logout... Just a black screen and it gets stuck there.... So maybe this is another issue? I also installed the ugly looking XDM and tried it instead of lightdm, but exit doesn`t work anyway.

Buy perhaps your suggestions will help me boot never kernels with other distros. I will try to install the latest siduction kernel, and see if your suggestions helps me boot it...

Regarding your logout issue, try this:

logout normally and when the screen goes black try dropping to tty with ctrl/alt/f1.
If your able to get to tty then enter your login info (if it asks) and run

Code: [Select]
sudo lightdm start
and see if that gets you back to the lightdm login screen

Nope, not able to drop to anything. By the way, shutdown and reboot doesn`t work either. Gets to black screen, and then totally unresponsive. Just the same that happens when I boot VSIDO-live cd, I need to use failsafe mode to boot it. Tried installing Bodhi with 3.7 kernel yesterday, unable to boot. The same with CB and 3.7 kernel. Also tried Siduction, same issue. That`s why I was kind of surprised that VSIDO booted at all.

I get a error during boot that perhaps could have something to do with the issue.... Something about:
"....BIOS handoff failed (bios bug?)....

Is it a crude fix? I assume so, but it works, and might help someone else if I post it.  ;)
9% CPU usage,  15% (567mb/3.62gb) RAM - nice!

Thanks. Hopefully this will solve my wifi-issues too. B43xx-you know..., always a hazzle...,
but I have always been able to sort it out with network-manager, but with Wicd it seems
quite impossible...

Ok. Thanks.

I didn`t want to configure to much if this could break it for me later.

But when I first have started a thread here, i might use it for some other issues:)

First, let me make it perfectly clear that my hardware is having issues with 3.7 kernels.
I have tested it with CB Waldorf, and I`m fine up to 3.6.10 kernel, but then it ends.
3.7 kernel simply doesn`t boot, or boots without display. Not sure. I get black screen,
and have to shutdown with the button on my pc....

In fact, VSIDO is the first distro that I`ve been able to boot with a 3.7 kernel,
but I had to boot the live-cd in failsafe mode to get it to work..., so that I could install it.

With this in mind, it`s no surprise that I`m having a few issues also with VSIDO,
but I`m not sure if they are related to my general problems with linux and ivy-bridge,
or if it is something that I can solve within VSIDO.

So, to get to the point. My first issue is that when I login to the default x-session,
then I don`t get back to the light-dm splash-page when I logout again. I just get
a black screen, and need to physically force down the pc, and make a reboot so that
I`m able to login again.

The next issue I have is wifi-related, but that can wait, because I`m able to get wifi trough
a huge ralink-dongle... As i see it, the most important thing for me to solve, is to be able to log out
from the default x-session, and get the spash page where I`m able to login again, or choose
another session to login to... Any ideas?

I will keep trying to fix it myself, but if this is a known issue and there is a fix, then it would
solve me a lot of hazzle. If it`s related to incompability between the kernel and my hardware,
then it`s a bit harder to solve. I`m just hoping that it is a small issue with a bug in a session-script
or something like that... Otherwise I`m in big trouble:)

Update: The logout-issue is the same from all sessions. I don`t get back to the light-dm splash-page.

Update2. Wifi solved, but insufficient priviliges in openpox. I guess it`s the policykit-issue, but if it works
in xfce, then I will fix it in openbox too... Logout-issue is still a problem. No splash-page at logout,
only visible after reboot and initial login...
