Certainly works for me, thanks a lot.
But it is my opinion that a warning message should be displayed when
installing/upgrading, I've googled the first time the screen went blank,
after that I hope that after a couple of days the problem would be fixed
(unstable attitude ;-) ) but after that the machine just stood
idle here until this post. So I think that many other users that are
confronted to this problem won't find a quick solution either.
Greetings and thanks a lot for this post
