loaded ubuntu 12.10 but during boot gets stuck at checking battery state [ok]. It appears its some kind of loop where this message keeps repeating. Any idea on how to fix?
checking battery state [ok]
Some reported it as corrupted .Xauthority file/ .Xauthority file owned by root. Removing it does the trick.
Press Ctrl+Alt+F2 when you are stuck.
Log in using your username and password.
Execute: sudo mv /var/lib/lightdm/.Xauthority /var/lib/lightdm/.Xauthority-bak
sudo mv /var/lib/lightdm/.Xauthority /var/lib/lightdm/.Xauthority-bak
Now reboot: sudo reboot
