I tried to upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10 and am encountering a problem with graphics drivers.
My plan is to re-install 12.04.
Before I do that, I would like to copy some files from the machine. I'm able to boot successfully from a disk with 12.04, but I can't find my old home directory, as the only user in the
home directory is
I've also tried to ssh into the machine, when it had booted (without graphics) but was unable to.
Is there a way to get to the old filesystem directory while booting from a CD? Any other suggestions?
