View Full Version : [ubuntu] splash screen loop after 9.10 upgrade

November 13th, 2009, 03:21 AM

A friend I referred to ubuntu is now having problems after upgrading to 9.10. We can't get his ubuntu to boot normally. After the boot menu we get the splash screen which starts flickering and looping over and over again. Occasionally I can see the silhouette of the login menu but it never makes it to it and keeps flickering back to the splash screen. I was able to get into his machine by choosing the recovery mode, logging in to the command line and using the startx command. After doing so I performed an apt-get update and made sure everything was installed, but it is still looping at the flash screen. Any idea on how to fix this?
