Problems after reinstall

Postby heiowge » Fri Feb 22, 2013 7:17 pm

I did a full reinstall. Everything was doing fine then an update told me to reboot. Now it won't load anything. I just get this:

Another reinstall? :(

What did you update? Did it include the kernel? If so, can you still boot from the old kernel?

I'm back on! It looks like it was a bad kernal update. 3.5.0-25 killed the box. 3.5.0-17 let me delete and reinstall it. Now back on the modern kernal and all's well.


Cheers. :D
