Boot failes after apt-get upgrade?

Postby ben_ben on Sun Mar 24, 2013 6:30 pm

Hello there,

after I ran sudo apt-get -y upgrade or sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade (I don't remember) my linux does not start up anymore :(

All that happens after I hit on Linux Mint in Grub is that I see a black screen with one '_' at the top left of the screen.

I did also set some environment variables so that I can easily start eclipse from the terminal. Therefore I did add export... lines at the end of the /etc/profile file. But I think that does not influence the booting behaviour - or does it?

Do I have to reinstall? What can be the cause of such a problem? I really did nothing fancy....

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
