After upgrading to 12.4 from 10.4 on an AMD64 the situation is as follows:
After booting I see the Xubuntu logo splash screen and when I log in I get an error that there is a system crash somewhere (it suggest to click on the notification icon, but no info appears then).
Finally I can only see my initial 10.04 Desktop but I have no panels at all, so I can only click on my Desktop objects.
Will a clean re-install solve the problem? In such case will my multi partition configuration (Vista+XP+Ubuntu) be affected?
