Upgraded to Ubuntu 18.10 to take advantage of performance improvements in GNOME 3.30, it disabled my proprietary Nvidia driver in the process, and I rebooted to a black screen. Took me several hours to get it working again. Adding ‘nomodeset’ to my grub config got xorg working in lo res mode, then was able to reinstall nvidia driver. Thought I would share in case anybody else runs into a similar issue.

I had to boot into recovery mode, drop to root prompt in order to edit grub config
