I keep getting a command prompt when booting into current version. I can only do a "normal" boot on a previous version. Please HELP ! SORRY, I'm a NOOB. I am running Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS I Cannot load; Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.0-37-generic-pae. It takes me to a command prompt. (I just tried to download and install a newer "experimental" video Driver, this is when it all began-after the mandatory reboot). I do NOT know command line prompt! I can, however get Ubuntu to boot(what I consider normally) going under "Previous Linux versions" (I guess this is why I referred to it as a version and NOT a kernel.) and use the most recent: Ubuntu, with Linux 3.2.0-36-generic-pae. I need help in being able to get a NORMAL BOOT using 3.2.0-37-generic-pae. I will try to answer any questions that I can. What I need is to have someone Walk Me Through what I will need to do. This is a computer shared by my Family and has Two Accounts. It would take Forever and a Day to back everything up and do a fresh reinstall.
When I do a "normal" boot, this is what happens:
Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS family tty1
(Note: of the two accounts that I have, one is administrator and the other is the one my family uses, named Family) Maybe someone out there can walk me through what I may have to do on command line prompt.
