View Full Version : [ubuntu] Fresh install of Intrepid hangs after login

December 23rd, 2008, 04:28 PM
I just installed Intrepid on a desktop machine, selecting the defaults except for Swedish. There were no complaints during installation.

When I reboot the machine after installation, it comes up with a login screen. So far, so good. After logging in, the screen goes all brown (with a mouse pointer that I can move around), and then nothing happens. Ever.

I've tried a couple of times and it's the same each time except once. That time, the screen went brown, then it went black. The mouse cursor went from arrow to spinning disc. The startup sound played. The spinning disc stopped spinning. Then nothing more.

The computer is an HP Compaq D230M.
