  1. [ubuntu] Re: I've broken Nautilus - libgtk-x11-3.0.so.0 problem - fixable?

  6. [SOLVED] Re: Laptop completely dead. Not even BIOS sequence. Any ideas?

    Well... removing the battery for a few minutes seems to have done the trick! The boot sequence is still a bit erratic but at least I've got a booting computer that's actually doing something now...

    It doesn't say anything - it just gets on and boots.

    But once everything's started, I have to do sudo mount -a to mount two remote NFS mounts and /var/backup, which is on a separate ext4...
