I updated my XFree86 in a bit to update kde (as I was getting these dependency run arounds) going through a procedure modifying some XF86 file (which I dont remember as it was from some url which is now in my favourites in my linux system which I cant access)..
Now, the system boots to the grub screen.. I select the linux version.. it boots successfully but instead of the login screen, I just see a black screen with ocassional flashes of the hourglass symbol....
Does anybody have any clue about how to get back to my original system?
I am a complete newbie when it comes to this? How can I even access the shell prompt as Ctrl+Alt+F4 also does not work?
Thanks for your time and patience
