    Exclamation Blank screen after dist-upgrade

    Ubuntu 10.10
    I was working on getting iPhone4 support in Rythmbox because I was getting an unknown device and then it would unmount.
    I updated libimobiledevice1 and installed libimobiledevice-dbg, then ran
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Rebooted, and after load up I get a blank/black screen instead of a log in screen.

    Rebooted, same thing. Sometimes I don't even see the Ubuntu splash as it loads, it just prints out some lines as if it were in verbose mode and then blank screen. Currently running in failsafeX graphics mode.

    This was solved by the following:

    sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
