I have the constant issue of my ubuntu server failing after rebooting after the xubuntu desktop installation.
server installs fine, sudo -s -H, I install lamp-server^, I install phpmyadmin, all works fine, Then I install xubuntu (apt-get install xubuntu-desktop)that all works and my web server is up and running but regardless of using the halt/reboot command or powering down/resetting the vmware player, when it starts up again it takes a while to show the "xubuntu 11.10" start up screen but then the player starts to flash and changes size and this happens with my laptop, house PC and college workstation and I have tried different ISO sources and still i get this problem. It is really starting to bother me and would like to know what is going wrong or what I am missing
