No display after updates?


I think I have a problem. I did some updates that I didn’t really pay attention to earlier today. After a reboot I don’t have a display and I’m pretty sure it was affecting other things as well. I get the prompt for my LUKS password but shortly after my display goes blank and I get the floating message of “Input Not Supported” dancing across my screen. Obviously my monitor is freaking out.

Something else that was weird was that I couldn’t ping the box or access it via SSH. That leads me to believe that something else, in addition to the display, was also affected. I booted into single user mode and then went to level 5 which got me a lot further but still produced the same display issue. This time, however, I was able to get my network connection working which means I now have SSH access.

Is anyone else seeing this problem?
