Ok, Trying to upgrade to the new xorg 7.0 and it's all gone tits up.
I now have no X, and can't log in, and now python has died.
Tried to reinstall old 6.9.0rsomething and now X fails to load.
Login prompt, enter user name and hit enter, no "password:" prompt, or anything at all, ctrl+c gets me back to login prompt but no user can login.
Booting ubuntu live cd to get 64bit environ, can chroot into system, however python has now thrown it's toys out the pram.
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
!!! Failed to complete python imports. These are internal modules for

Traceback (most recent call last):

Any help very welcome.
