View Full Version : [ubuntu] boot hangs after trying new monitor settings

September 11th, 2008, 09:36 PM
I have been running ubuntu for a while. After messing around with the monitor settings (a lot!) I can't boot. In the course of trying to get my laptop to display to a widscreen i did:

1. sudo apt-get update
2. sudo apt-get install linux-restricted-modules-$(uname -r)
3. sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
4. sudo aticonfig --initial

It booted a few times after that, however I messed with the monitor settings a bunch after. Now it won't boot. It first stopped at /etc/rc.local

I can boot in recovery mode, where I looked at rc.local and saw only

exit 0

I removed rc.local in recovery mode because from other threads it seemed that ubuntu looks for init.d instead of rc.local anyways.

Now the boot appears to stop after *checking battery state...
