I am currently using ubuntu 10.04 . Everything was ok
with that but now i am facing a problem.As the grub start loading and I select ubuntu for booting it shows a message "GNOME configuration for power manager have not been intsalled correctly,please contact your administrator". Though it asks for password for booting nothing happens then.
How to fix it??
@repo: if I run live cd in that case what will happen to my data kept in different drives and
that kept on desktop? I also have windows installed in my laptop. Do i need to install ubuntu again
using live cd or what else i can do?
@repo : the question related to data was stupid as I asked it without reading the link given to me. two minutes ago
i exactly did as it was given in the link -
Boot up using a ubuntu live CD.
Fire up a terminal.
Check the partition info to ascertain where is the linux distro located:-
sudo fdisk -l
( For this post we will assume the ubuntu install is in /dev/sda6)
Next mount it
sudo mount -t auto /dev/sda6 /mnt
Reinstall GRUB2 using the following command
sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
then i reboot my system and its perfect.
thank you guys for replying.
