    "sudo apt-get install --reinstall libnss3:i386 libnss3" outta fix it if this has knocked out your wireless, if someone can confirm that that would be great.

    Ok, so boot off the CD, go into recovery mode, and reinstall the package from the local cache:

    sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/libnss3_3.12.9+ckbi-1.82-0ubuntu5_amd64.deb

    if you're on amd64

    sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/libnss3_3.12.9+ckbi-1.82-0ubuntu5_i386.deb

    for i386

    From live cd desktop connect to internet then open a terminal and run the following
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /mnt/temp
    which may or may not report that it already exists.
    Then
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sdXY /mnt/temp
    change to include your Ubuntu root partition instead of /dev/sdXY
    Then
    Code:
    for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt/temp$i;  done
    Then
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/temp/etc/resolv.conf
    Then
    Code:
    sudo chroot /mnt/temp
    At this point the terminal prompt should change to root@ubuntu
    You can then
    Code:
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    or at least when the updated packages have arrived.
    When finished run
    Code:
    exit
    Then run
    Code:
    for i in /dev/pts /dev /proc /sys; do sudo umount /mnt/temp$i ; done
    to unmount what you mounted earlier.

    sorry to be dense but how do i find out what "dev/sdXY" is ?

    i have a standard installation ie home not separate partition

    also how do i go into recovery mode from live cd ?

    Re: Don't update ca-certificates just yet

    One way is
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    which will give details of your current partition layout. You'll need to work out which is your root partition (you may only have one partition for Oneiric - others will have a root partition and a home partition).
    Or via gparted.

    Re: Don't update ca-certificates just yet

    It is my guess that "dev/sdXY" represents the partition that 11.10 is installed in. For me that would be sda7 so I would have to type dev/sda7, is my guess. Remember, in Linux things like hard disks and partitions are devices as are lots of other things.

    Re: Don't update ca-certificates just yet

    i get:

    /dev/sda1 * 1 18936 152096768 83 Linux
    /dev/sda2 18936 19458 4191233 5 Extended
    /dev/sda5 18936 19458 4191232 82 Linux swap / Solaris

    so is it sda1 ?

    castrojo, I ran the ca-certificates updates earlier and when I try to re-install libnss3 it says I currently have the latest version installed.
