I uninstalled 11.04 and installed 12.04 and grub was not detecting the partitions, so I fixed it with boot-repair and 12.04 loaded perfectly, then I tried to install the device driver for Nvidia Graphics card and it took a long time, so I stopped it and shut down.When I restarted the computer I got the message cannot write bytes: broken pipe.Then I followed this thread for help. could not write bytes broken pipe 12.04
I went to recovery mode and drooping to root prompt and typed this command
sudo gedit /var/log/apt/history.log
For this I got the following error message as gedit did not open that file:
(gedit : 856):Warning : Command line 'dbus-launch --autolaunch=somernadomnumbers -- binary-syntax --close-stderr' exitted with non-zero exit status 1: Autolaunch error: X11 initialization failed. \n cannot open display: Run 'gedit --help' to see a full list of available command options.
Did this happen because of stopping the installation of Nvidia device driver in the middle of its installation?
I am running 12.04 with Winodws 7 dual boot.Any help would be appreciated.
When 12.04 was working normally I started and quit in the middle of the installation of the Grahpics driver for Nvidia Grahpics card and I restarted the computer and got the could not write bytes: broken pipe error.
