    An admin can't just move or copy it there?

    Not the entire thread, or some post in it. You can start a new thread in The Unreviewed Howto, add extra info if you want.

    I'm having a hard time coming up with a subject/title including the keyword nomodeset. As I see it, there are two points related yet distinct to be covered:

    1-Why and how to use to use nomodeset (at installation time, or change of gfxchip time) which is commonly needed as a workaround for a black screen and/or lack of keyboard/mouse response

    2-Nomodeset, in most casesa of success with #1, is a workaround to be removed after the temporary use that the installer treats as remaining needed on subsequent boots

    a-mainly excepting in cases of prior expectation to install proprietary (usually NVidia) video driver subsequently

    How about: "Installation problems, graphics woes and nomodeset"

    Just a suggestion, which you can use, ignore, modify. Best to have something short and pithy.

    I don't like seeing the word "problems" in subject lines, too noobish to come from technical sages. How about an informal poll:

    A: Difficult Graphics Upgrade & Installation Band-aid: nomodeset

    or

    B: Troubling Graphics Upgrade & Installation Band-aid: nomodeset

    or

    C: Graphics Upgrade & Installation Plagues Band-aid: nomodeset

    or

    D: nomodeset: Band-aid for Graphics Upgrade & Installation Obstacles

    It's your choice of title. But I wonder whether "Band-aid" infringes on any trade mark.

    How about something stunningly clever and brilliantly original, such as:

    How To Deal with Graphic Upgrade and Installation Glitches

    ... the stunningly clever and brilliantly original part being the "How To"



    Seriously, though, FM, you write it and do the best you can. Don't worry about how it looks to other people, other than to think about making it so a complete noob can follow the directions.

    Seasoned veterans will skip over the "noob" parts and still get good advice.

    You do that, make it good, and I would vote to make it a Sticky FAQ, especially if you address a few different scenarios.

    Go for it.

    So if I start one there, and submit. Do I still have only 3 minutes to try to edit if I don't like the result? Can I come back the next day, or any time, as with a Wiki?
