My wireless stopped working suddenly and I tried to reinstall the driver. I think that I installed the wrong one and after rebooting I am stuck on Ubuntu login screen. When I try to login Ubuntu blinks with black screen with the message:

Stopping system V runlevel compatibility.

After that it returns to the login screen. lspci shows me WiFi driver RTL8191SEvB.

**I installed the RTL8187L driver when the problem appeared.

I tried to blacklist all kinds of RTL drivers but Ubuntu again and again shows me RTL8191SEvB.

Wireless card is working, I try it on Win.

This is the output I get when I try to login:

  • Stopping save kernel messages

  • Starting CUPS printing spooler/servers

  • Starting VirutalBox kernel modules

  • Starting bluetooth

  • (STAR is a yellow color) PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions saned disabled; edit /etc/default/saned *checking battery state

  • Stopping system V runlevel compatibility.


lp rtc coretemp

lsmod | grep rt

blacklisted (as I said I try all kind rtl drivers, but I try with with all commented also, same thing)

blacklist rtl8192se blacklist rtl8192ce blacklist rtl8192de blacklist rtl8187L blacklist rtl8187 blacklist rtlwifi
