October 12th, 2008, 03:28 AM
I am unable to get back in to mythbuntu after sypatic update to "new" Nvidia driver update. I am a new linux user and don't understand all the commands.

At boot up I have 5 choices. the second one is Ubuntu 8.04.1, kernel 2.6.24-19-generic (recovery mode) This just seems to include devices on my system...Mmmm

Does anyone no how to get in to login, back to where it was previous to the Nvidia driver update...Im stuck:( nothing seems to work as I have tried diff things...If I choose the first choice...Ubuntu 8.04.1, kernel 2.6.24-19-generic, it loads up the splash page, then a curser at the top left for 1 second, then black screen.

My box is Asus P5Q-E with intel P45
Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT video card PCIE
4 gig ram
Mythbuntu 8.04.1 (It worked fine before I did the update)

Hope someone can help, thank you.
