Unhappy Booting issue


Hi,

I recently upgraded my ubuntu distribution to version 11.10. When I restarted, it never started again. When I open the recovery mode,I get two errors:

1. Could not find whiptail, starting root shell instead of recovery menu.

Bash: Group commannds: Not found

2. Could not connect to the system bus. Unable to connect to the socket /var/run/dbus/........

I searched in the google and I found that this socket, in the latest version has been shifted to some other location so if I delete the files in directory /var/run/dbus/--- everything will work well???

The issue is when I delete the files, it says "Read only file system" files cannot be deleted.

Can anyone help me with this.....?????


Regards,
Kumar

I've had similar problems upgrading Ubuntu before, its not a rolling distribution.
One way to solve this is to run the Ubuntu 11.10 CD in Live mount, mount your existing
linux partition, then pull off your data to an external hard drive or memory stick,
then re-install wiping the original partitions.

You did not say which previous version of Ubuntu you used, but kernel 2.6.35 is a few distributions ago.

The version I dont rem...what I have is the Kernel infoLinux singh-VGN-CR35G-L 2.6.35-22-generic #33-Ubuntu i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux)

By saying Live Mount, did you mean reinstalling from Live CD or USBdrive?? I am new to linux. I have some data which I need to move..and thats what giving me pain...Once I transfer the data I can reinstall the full ubuntu..!!

As I mentioned earlier normal mv or Copy or other simiar command is not working in recovery shell. I guess its becuase of the message I pasted before: "Bash: Group commannds: Not found"

Is there a way I can take a back up of my data in some external drive????
