Comment 8 for bug 197581

I'm a new user, i had trouble upgrading to ubuntu 9.10 when KDE was set as default desktop, i was able to reset to gdm & upgrade proceeded however upon boot i had a black screen without any options.

Using recovery mode, i tried to reinstall xubuntu, kubuntu desktop & desktop managers separately & then eventually installed edubuntu & used the recovery to repair broken packages.

I was then able to boot gui with loads about 3/4 startup crashes.
