Dammit. Why do I have to mount all my hard drives whenever I reboot (maybe even log out and back in... haven't tried that one yet).
This morning I woke up and the system was completely frozen after being powered on all night. I moved the mouse pressed some keys and all that happened was that after about 5 mins the screensaver came up. Not an animated screensaver mind you, a still frame that obviously would be played along with many others in some sort of moving picture.
Then, after rebooting this morning then going to work, I come bake 10 minutes ago and turning on the monitor reveals a full on terminal session. No gui, no error message given (not that I noticed anyway). It was prompting me to log on. I typed my name, pressed enter and a line break was created but there was no other prompt. So I could keep typing and typing but I was never asked for my password.
I'm sorry. I realize I'm ranting and blowing off steam but please, can somebody help me to figure out what went wrong with hardy and how to set it right.
