View Full Version : [SOLVED] Karmic new install: freeze after login

December 8th, 2009, 05:07 AM
I've just upgraded from Jaunty to Karmic. I used the 'upgrade' option rather than a fresh install because the fresh install kept hanging.

I can enter my password and get to the GUI fine, but as soon as I try to open anything the computer freezes. Logging in with 'failsafe gnome' gives the same result. I can log in with the 'xterm', but don't know what to do to fix this. Any ideas?

I have quite an old laptop, an ASUS S5200N.

In the end I 'solved' this by going back to Jaunty.
