I'm running a variant of Ubuntu called Xubuntu, and it has been going fine the last couple of days. But now, every time I boot, shortly after the process completes, the hard disk activity is fully on, and the system appears to be super unresponsive. Caps lock/Num lock keys do not respond. Mouse unresponsive. Can't do anything but wait. Nothing works.
Tried systemrescuecd and used the fsck utility on my hard-drive. Nothing.
Tried to use the recovery console and used the clean, dpkg and grub commands. Nothing.
If anyone can help me fix this, it would be a good help. I have a terminal window open when it boots up before the system goes full crazy with the hard drive, so that could be a help.
