Help Please


Hey everyone,
i just installed Ubuntu yesterday and it ran fine. But today when I get home, it loads up but it just stops on "Starting system log daemon" It says [OK] but it just stays there. What do I do to fix this?

EDIT: After a while the gui loads. it takes for ever though. Can this be fixed?

Does it behave this way on every boot-up?

Would you please get off my back about what it is titled as. Maybe I called it "Help Please" because I need help.

What he is trying to get you to do is use titles that are more descriptive of what you are looking for---so people are more likely to help you.

On to the substance.....
I have a hunch that this problem is related to the various routines for maintaining log files--you might try looking at the logs for clues.

Also try Ubuntuforums---this may be unique to Ubuntu and/or Debian

ubuntuuser - heres a couple of things:

"Can this be fixed?" Everything can be fixed...

It is a good idea to make the title as descriptive as possible,
thats all acid_kewpie is trying to say.

To your problem - 1st, don't be shy about giving information - too much
informaiton is not a bad thing... not enough is terrible. If I were you,
I'd read through ' dmesg ' and see if any errors stick out. You can
also read through /var/log/syslog - match up the time you booted to the
times referenced in syslog to help track down the problem.

It sounds to me like a service is having trouble getting going. But unless
someone has had the exact problem, its hit or miss on my part without
more information.

How long is the pause while its 'stuck'?
What gets loaded right after it loads the system log daemon?

Thanks for the replys. I didn't mean to be mean acid_kewpie. I was just really mad when I posted that.
