Default Re: 100.14.11 driver hangs the Ubuntu box

So I've installed serial console. But it did not produce any specific output when gdm stared. Box just died quietly. This is what console output looks like:

After the last line printed on console, I connected to the box from putty and started gdm like this:


serge@ubox:~$ sudo -i
root@ubox:~# /etc/init.d/gdm start
* Starting GNOME Display Manager... [ OK ]


The putty terminal becomes frozen then, and, after few seconds, it reports lost connection. Attempt to ping the box fails as well.

Do I need to switch something else on to see more debugging output?
