After reboot the screen remained black, only mouse cursor is visible. Simply switch between tty6 and back to tty7 recovered the screen.

Screen came up black with the cursor in it. I did what I always do: hit "ENTER". It gave me the gdm login screen.

To activate compiz in the 3D test, I would have to allow installation of the 3D drivers. This installs the first listed driver in System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers, in my case, NVidia 173, which is not compatible with my card.

Uninstallation works fine, but nouveau fails miserably...
