View Full Version : [ubuntu] Only boots into command line

April 29th, 2011, 08:12 PM
I did a dist-upgrade this morning, and now every time I boot, it only goes to the command line login prompt.

Attempting to stop and restart gdm does nothing besides make the screen shake for a second, and I've installed all available video drivers from Available Drivers, and the ones from nvidia's website.

I am, however, able to boot into recovery mode and then select failsafe graphics mode, and get into the desktop.

Any ideas how I can get my normal boot to work?

Try one of these boot options.

If that doesn't help, see if you can find some good info here...
