I just updated the latest package that was available with the manager. Headers and whatnot. Was prompted to restart the system, which I did. Ubuntu tries to load but all I get is the blank purple screen. Have rebooted numerous times, no change. How do I get it back? Am on 12.04 and have a flash drive containg 10.something, if that is any help.
As an aside, I am starting to doubt the wisdom of ever updating Ubuntu. It almost always seems to make things worse.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
