    Back from the eye doc. Good report. No new glasses.

    I am about to give that crtl+c a try.

    ctrl+c worked. After updates and reboot it trashed my installs and now I have the <Grub command prompt.

    Time to bring out handy super_grub rescue!

    Grub_Rescue saves the day !

    I think it was because of new 3.8.0-11kernel.

    All updated but still no mir functioning.

    I'll try it on my ATi device.

    It worked , just like you said. I got back into X with ctrl+alt+F7. Then I restared normally. During the updates, though, I got the 3.8.0-11 kernel. I also | sudo update-grub | so maybe somthing I did.

    EDIT:

    Whoops.. I forgot to mention that I am experiementing with the XFS file system on this particular install of raring, so there could be a connection to that Grub loss.

    Re: Who wants to test MIR?

    I waited for wayland .. it didn't happen. Stills eems that it won't happen. Now I'm waiting for Mir.

    X? I guess it will all come out in the wash.

    I am preparing to try Mir on my ATi graphics. I mean .. I'll be happy even if it blinks or something.

    I red about this and for someone into management this triggers my ocd.

    if the other display manager has an estimate cost of half a million

    http://www.ohloh.net/p/weston/estimated_cost

    and has been in development for 5 years, why not simply grab their code and fork it, modify, strip it etc... ?

    I did the install on my ati radeon and nothing happened. At this point I think it is just phantom-ware.

    Re: Who wants to test MIR?

    btw .. I was able to get Mir to actually do something. I hit ctrl+alt+F1 and entered the code mir from the command prompt. It disappeared and gave me a black screen and when i tried to get back to terminals it would just briefly flash my hostname and login - eventual having to reboot.
    That is Mir SERVER yes and to be able to see something like the demonstration in that last video on Phoronix you would have to run some demo CLIENT. I don't know if any comes with PPA or how to run it if it does. One demo CLIENT as seen in last video on Phoronix link i gave comes with following instructions in HACKING.md file but you still need PPA for patched Mesa (driver support).

    I waited for wayland .. it didn't happen. Stills eems that it won't happen.
    I think it will happen and ATM it's possible to do more with Wayland compared to Mir like for example running videos with MPlayer2 or browsing the web with Snowshoe web browser... You have Intel hardware and it will probably work on it and the easiest way to test it:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/rebeccablackos/

    Mir will probably take few months or a year to catch up with current Wayland on the desktop but on the Mobile Mir will probably based on current info try hard to achieve something usable sooner rather than later.
