Several days ago we had a power failure. When I rebooted my Ubuntu Linux box, it initially came up displaying the F in the center of the screen but never went to the login. Instead it goes to a black terminal look. There is a cursor which responds to the mouse and an underline at the top left corner of the screen which does nothing.
The process list shows 4
/usr/bin/Xorg processes owned by root and there are many processed owned by gdm.
gdm restart produces the following error:
[root@BTRC-Server01 ~]# gdm restart ** (gdm-binary:11700): WARNING **: Failed to acquire org.gnome.DisplayManager ** (gdm-binary:11700): WARNING **: Could not acquire name; bailing out
Any help would be appreciated.
