I recently did the update from 12.04 to 12.10 on my old Dell Latitude CPx laptop (Pentium III). When I rebooted I got this error message with no response from keyboard input. Below it is says
Wait to continue, press S to skip mounting, or M for manual recovery.
I also see occasional errors pop up on the screen from mountall and Plymouth. I can still get into Recovery Mode. Can anyone shed some light on the matter?
Update: I redid my fstab, to no avail. Now my screen is flashing on and off from the Ubuntu 12.10 splash screen to a black screen. I would really love to avoid a reinstall...
