updated, boot fails, katya 11.

Post by solna »

so last night, i did the usual update. the last update i did... was when WINE 1.4 got pushed to us.

my wife turned my computer off last night right before she went to bed.

went to start it this morning, got nothing but a nice wall of text, including 'starting fallback graphics failed [ok]' among others.

i'll include a better excerpt later tonight when i get home.


was there anything in the recent updates that might kill katya?

better yet, what's a good way to roll back, or will i have to do the dreaded usb-boot external drive recovery before reinstalling completely?

EDIT: forgot to mention, i'm unable to pull up a command line, but that might just be me being dumb.

update:

okay, here's what it's spitting back at me.

it runs through starting all the usuals, starting kernel message saving, bluetooth.

then it spits this gem out:

building vloopback driver...
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=/tmp/webcamstudio-src modules
make[1]: entering directory `usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic
cc[M] /tmp/webcamstudio-src/webcamstudio.o
/tmp/webcamstudio-src/webcamstudio.c: in function v4l_loopback_write:
/tmp/webcamstudio-src/webcamstudio.c:609:2: warning: format '%d' expects type 'int', but argument 2 has type 'size_t'
/tmp/webcamstudio-src/webcamstudio.c:617:6: warning: format '%d' expects type 'int', but argument 2 has type 'size_t'
building modules stage 2
modpost `1 modules
cc /tmp/webcamstudio-src/webcamstudio.mod.o
ld [m]/tmp/webcamstudio-src/webcamstudio.ko
make[1]: leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic'
make -C lib/modules/'uname -r'/build M=/tmp/webcamstudio-src modules_install


then it stops a bunch of stuff, cold plug devices, display managers, etc.

and then nothing. i have a blinky cursor, no responses to any command inputs *I* have come up with, but i'll cop to not being an expert.



thoughts?
