View Full Version : [ubuntu] problem w install

January 16th, 2009, 01:02 AM
I have been trying to install the newest version on a Dell Dimension 2300 w/ substancial memory. I performed a clean install and it seemed to go fine. I restarted when prompted and the login came on. After a while a brown screen came up w/ the "wheel". Eventually the screen changed to blank w/ nothing but he mouse arrow, and the Hard drive stopped kicking. This is the second time I installed and the same thing happened before. Anyone know whats going on?

Hi -- have you tried login in through Rescue, then doing "sudo dpkg --configure -a" in terminal, or "sudo dpkg --reconfigure xserver-xorg"?
