I installed (or tried to) cuDNN, bumblebee, tensorflow, cuda and after I reboot, I cannot get past the login page. I tried a few solutions online:
Went to recovery mode
Dropped to root shell promt

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*Got:
E: Could not create temporary file for /var/lib/apt/extended_states - mkstemp (
0: Read-only file system)
E: Failed to write temporary StateFile /var/lib/apt/extended_states
W: Could not open file '/var/log/apt/term.log' -- OpenLog (30: Read-only file system)
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
W: Problem unlinking the file /var/cache/apt/pkgcache.bin - pkgDPkgPM::Go (30: Read-only file system)What do I do?

Try checking your filesystem, errors can force it to mount read-only. Usually, install the Nvidia drivers first, and when those are working, install the cuda .deb file from Intel, then the cuda package from the Ubuntu repositories.
