I cannot go pass the black screen and the following shows up on my screen after upgrading and rebooting with the Ubuntu update manager from 11.10 to 12.04:
ata_id : HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed for '/dev/sdb/': Invalid argument *stopping save kernel messages Setting up X font server socket directory /tmp/.font-unix...done. Starting X font server:xfs. Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) utility, e.g. service S25 bluetooth start inid: Unkown job: S25 bluetooth Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an upstart job, you may also use the start(8) utility, e.g. start S25bluetooth *PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions Saned disabled; edit /etc/default/saned *Checking battery state... [OK]
After this nothing happens anymore.
I even tried booting from different linux versions and also from recovery mode. I've tried repairing the packages and even updating the grub loader.
*I have Ubuntu in an external hard drive but there were never any problems with booting before the upgrade.
*Also, it seems to be something to do with invoking init scripts rather than other problems. (If u think it isn't, still do try to help me solve the problem.)
