Hello all
I am upgrading from Gutsy to Hardy.
I have an HP a 518X
I normally use Gnome.
The notifier asked for an upgrade to H.H.
Downloaded the packages
Installation has hung at the following point:
Three minutes to go.
Last terminal message:
Generation Complete.
*Reloading GNOME Display Manager Configuration...
*Changes will take effect when all current X sessions have ended.
Invoke-rc.d.: initscript gdm, action "reload" failed.

Errors were encountered while processing:

And that is all. mouse is working. cannot open any programs nor reboot.

Can any one tell me what is the best thing to do now?

Thanks everyone
