I have been testing Xubuntu Lucid 10.04 since it first went to Lucid, and now through each Alpha release.
The Lucid A2 Dist-Upgrades from 2 nights ago, have b0rked my Xubuntu install.
No problem, as it is not my 'main' OS and I kinda expect this to happen, through the early development stages of a new edition.
After downloading and installing the updates/upgrades, the system asked for a computer re-start. After Grub and the Log-in screen, came the dreaded BSOD. (black screen of death)
I've done everything I can to bring it back, but to no avail. I finally have to do a 'hard shutdown'. I can still get in the b0rked OS by going in through another Linux OS and mounting it.
Or by mounting from the original Xubuntu Lucid Alpha2 LiveCD. Luckily, all my files, data and such are in a separate /home partition.If you learn nothing else ... remember this one thing ... never do a "Partial Upgrade".
Oh, well ... live and learn. It's cool.
Over all, I am very impressed with the new and coming LTS of Ubuntu Lucid ... the Devs are doing a great job.
