Just tried to install 8.10 last night and everything went fine right until after GRUB. It did the whole ubuntu logo and loading bar bit.
But after that, it asked me to log in at a CLI and not at the normal GNOME interface. I can succesfully log in, but rather than being brought to my desktop, I'm just presented a command line.
Anyone else experiencing this? I've got an exam tomorrow that I need my computer to study for.
