Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

yesterday ubuntu 10.04 just hanged and when i restarted it , i just got a black screen with a blinking cursor , googling it i found a solution which is passing noapic flag during boot .. that worked well but now i can't connect to the internet. so i need one of the following :

  • boot without noapic thus having my connection back
  • enabling net connection with the noapic flag

thanks in advance ...

Maybe you should look for another solution for the first problem.Turn off noapic and search for the solution to that problem first.. –  karthick87 Dec 18 '10 at 16:49
