Ubuntu 18.10 boots to blank screen with flashing cursor, flipping ttys does not start GUI on Alienware 17 R5
Folks I reported this bug in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdm3/+bug/1796614
I'll attach the gdm log I captured. I've been poring over it and can't find any obvious failure mode. I'm totally willing to do any amount of leg work necessary to debug this if anyone has any clues at all I'd welcome them!
In the mean time I'll keep poring over the log, and reading the gdm source code (maybe try my hand at building it locally) in hopes of making some progress :)
