I cant boot into my ubuntu system due to a boot problem I am trying to fix. One of the suggestions I have had to fix it is to purge any nvidia restricted drivers installed. How can I gain access to the terminal for the installed ubuntu from the terminal from livecd for me to remove the nvidia packaged?


Boot the Ubuntu Live CD, press Ctrl-Alt-F1

$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

If you created a custom partition layout when installing Ubuntu you have to find your root partition using the fdisk utility. See the section Finding your root partition.

$ sudo chroot /mnt
