Well, less than 2 weeks with my new 10.04 install and I'm in trouble... and stumped.
It appears that X does not start or that the boot process hangs before it gets to X. for a "normal" boot I end up stuck on the splash screen. If I boot the "rescue" option I see:
* Setting sensors limits [ OK ] * Setting console screen modes and fonts ... and then it just sits there. I'm unable to get any virtual consoles - the screens are blank.I can boot the system from the old hard drive running Intrepid 8.10 so I know the hardware (including video card) are fine. Unfortunately, I chose ext4 for the new root partition so I cannot mount it from the running Intrepid system (no support for ext4).
I'm going to reboot from the 10.04 install disk to get a live system and see if I can gather any information from the syslog or messages files.
[hints|tips|suggestions] would be appreciated!
