Have you deleted anything from your install recently, If so what?
If you don't like it, make something better
If you can't make something better, adapt
If you can't do either ball your panties up and cry

If you can't make it work maybe you are making it fail.

So did you get a black screen?
What graphics driver are you using and how was it installed?
Did you receive this after doing a dist-upgrade where there were kernel packages?

To determine the graphics driver, if you are not positive, run this terminal command:
Code: Select all
inxi -Gx
you may have to first install the inxi package.

If you just updated your system and you included kernel/linux-image packages and you are using a proprietary nVidia driver you may have to reinstall your driver or use the depmod command depmod — program to generate modules.dep and map files. (from the man page, check it to see more options)
Code: Select all
sudo depmod
