I'm running a HP 255 laptop. I was happily running Xubuntu 14.04 on it and this morning accepted the upgrade to 14.10.
All went well. I rebooted and have been using 14.10 all day.
However, I rebooted again this evening and now it won't boot up.
It gets as far as the Xubuntu 14.10 splash screen with the moving dots below it and sits there forever.
I have booted into safe mode and run both
dpkg. Package manager says I'm up to date (as I should be) and
fsck found a load of errors in the
/tmp directory, which I fixed.
In safe mode
fsck now runs clean but the system won't boot. I'm typing this on an old Toshiba I pulled out of the cupboard as it's the only machine I have available that works.
Any hints or tips to try would be most gratefully received.
