I'm using Ubuntu Server 14.04 on VirtualBox. Windows host.
Not sure if it is related, but I have just installed sendmail and mailutils. After a reboot, it's stuck at the black console screen, it's stuck but doesn't hand completely.
It does not show any error or anything unusual.
The last lines of the boot screen say:
* Stopping log initial device creation [ OK ] * Starting load fallback graphics devices [ OK ] * Starting load fallback graphics devices [fail] * Starting set console font [ OK ] * Stopping set console font [ OK ] * Starting userspace bootsplash [ OK ] * Stopping userspace bootsplash [ OK ] * Starting Send an event to indicate plymouth is up [ OK ] * Stopping Send an event to indicate plymouth is up [ OK ] * Starting MySQL 5.6 Server [ OK ] * Stopping CPU interrupts balancing daemon [ OK ]
I can ctrl+alt+f2 to login. everything else works fine but apache, which I can manually start.
I have manually upgraded MySQL to 5.6 recently. There looks nothing weird in boot.log, dmesg, syslog, etc. Except MySQL seems to try to continue some upgrade work.
However, MySQL works fine and startup it self automatically.
apt-get update and
apt-get upgrade. Removed sendmail & mailutils, nothing helps.
Can anyone give me some hints on how to find out the proper error message?
