View Full Version : [ubuntu] Gutsy boots but only after exiting recovery...

April 22nd, 2008, 03:56 PM
Hey Guys,

I've installed Gutsy on my HP/Compaq Pressario R4000. When I let GRUB auto start Gutsy for me (via the first menu choice) it hangs. However, if I intervene and select the OS recovery mode menu option, the system boots up to a command prompt. If I then type "exit", the GNOME desktop starts up and the OS runs fine.

Anyone know how I can avoid this procedure?

Failing that, I was thinking I could alter GRUB so that recovery mode was its default choice.... and then have recovery execute an 'exit script at the end of its bootup...
