Just correcting a wrong comment (#2) I made: > It happens on both 32bit and 64bit installations.
I asked the school that reported the issue on 64bit to check again, and they said they have a 32bit installation after all. So the problem has only been reported in 32bit installations; I don't know if it happened on 64bit. And btw everything is fixed now, thanks again to all. :) -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1815172 Title: Black screen on skylake after 18.0 => 18.2 update Status in Mesa: Fix Released Status in linux package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in mesa package in Ubuntu: New Status in linux source package in Bionic: New Status in mesa source package in Bionic: Fix Committed Status in linux source package in Cosmic: New Status in mesa source package in Cosmic: Fix Committed Bug description: Several schools reported black screens after normally updating their Ubuntu boxes from 18.0.5-0ubuntu0~18.04.1 to 18.2.2-0ubuntu1~18.04.1.
