Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have just upgraded my installation of Ubuntu 12.04 beta, and now I won't start the GUI. If I go into "Previous versions of Linux" from the boot-menu I can start the old upgrade without problems. The one that doesn't works runs kernel 3.2.0-23-generic. The one that works is running 3.2.0-22-generic.

What I'm asking is how to either fix the upgraded version, or make it disappear (at least from the listing) so I don't how to mess around in grub when I boot my computer. Thanks.

If you want to remove an entry from boot menu you just need to edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg remove the appropriate entry

Yes, I forgot about that. Thanks! At least I can fix it so that I don't have to mess around in GRUB every time I boot. That still does not solve the problem though; that my latest upgrade does not work. –  Esso Apr 15 '12 at 15:13

Renaming the xorg.conf file to something like xorg.conf.backup worked to me at the first time because the system didn't tried to load the old video setup. But in my case, I`ve had to remove the nvidia-current lib because the error still occured after some time.

Normally this file is located at /etc/Xorg/xorg.conf.

Rename it to what? –  Esso Apr 27 '12 at 18:21
    
I just renamed it in order to not be called. So you can rename it from xorg.conf to xorg.conf.bkp or so. –  revagomes Oct 25 '13 at 15:43
