View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade to 9.04 - Can't Log In

May 9th, 2009, 11:00 PM
I decided to upgrade to 9.04 today. Novice Ubuntu user. I've got both KDE and Gnome on the machine, but normally run KDE. When I can back to the machine after letting it do its thing, the floating bubble log-in screen was there, but it was locked up. When I did a hard reset, it booted, and informed me there was a problem with the graphics adapter being supported. I selected "revert to previous configuration", but it now presents me with the login screen "Welcome to localhost.localdomain", it has my username listed, but when I enter the password KDE will not start, nor can I start Gnome. I can login to the console if I want. It accepts my password normally and then comes right back to the login screen again.

My next move would probably be to download and burn a live cd of 9.04 on another machine and boot using that. I should be able to preserve all my files doing that, correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
