i was recently making some researches about the passwd file, and out of curiosity i deleted it, after i deleted it my computer froze, and after a hard reboot it doesnt boot. i found a solution on this site but it had to do with restoring a backup of the deleted file. so on my own accord i ran a live-cd and copied passwd- as the new passwd file, now the computer boots to the login screen but the screen keeps flicking with a black boot screen.
please i need your help, i have several works on hold for the past 2 days.
p.s i am using ubuntu 13.04
