View Full Version : [ubuntu] keyboard stopped responding during upgrade

May 1st, 2010, 05:27 PM
I'm an idiot. I *knew* I should have upgraded by just installing fresh from a CD, but I got lazy, and didn't want to reinstall all my apps. I figured I'd try the auto-upgrade thingie, and if it didn't work, I could always go back to the fresh install.

Well the 9.04-9.10 half of the auto-upgrade worked flawlessly. But from 9.10 to 10.04, my mouse and keyboard stopped working. Now it's asking me one of those Y/I/N/O/D/Z questions, and I have no way to respond.

Does anyone have a way out of this? If I cold reboot, is there any sort of way to resume, or is the OS gonna be toast and need a fresh install?
