update manager stalls causing unusable system
Recently installed Xubuntu 8.04 onto an ASus desktop and have had a number of issues. The most serious being that using update manager to update files caused a problem resulting in not being able to boot Xubuntu. The update process seemed to be going OK until it got to a point where it was starting to update gstreamer files at which point it stalled and although i left it for over an hour, it did not get past this point. After shutting down and restarting I was able to get to the login screen but after logging in, it stalls before bringing up the main desktop. I tried using recovery mode which required a fix of aparently damaged packages and i also ran xfix but to no avail - i can still not boot into Xubuntu. I also noted that there is now two versions of Xubuntu and recovery mode in the grub menu at startup - none of which work. Any help to sort this so that i can get a working system again would be much appreciated.
