Canīt start xorg in ubuntu 8.10 due to fatal error caused by /lib/modules


Hello, I really need some urgent help please.

I installed ubuntu 8.10 in an acer aspire one using a wubi install. It was working correctly, but after I installed an update and tried to open a new shell( the update manager adviced that it was necesary to reboot the system), it did not open, so I went to a shell that I had opened before installing the update and tried to open several gnome applications, such like eog and gedit, to see if it could give information about the error. It showed and error saying that gettext symbol was not defined. I thought this was caused by the update and that it would be fixed as soon as I rebooted the system. But after rebooting, it wouldn`t load the graphic environment and showed the following error at startup:

Code:
X: warning; process set to priority -1 instead of requested priority 0

X.Org X Server 1.5.2

[/CODE]
giving up.
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.

I have tried to fix this problem using the recovery mode, but none of the options provided with 2.6.27-14-generic kernel has worked. I can still log in a root shell using recovery mode, and I am hoping I can solve the problem from there with the necessary advice.


Thanks in advance.

There is an inconsistency - the kernel doesn't fit the set of modules installed (they seem to be from 8.04 - how's that come about? wrong wubi version?). Where did you get the "wicho" kernel from? Didn't it come with modules? What kind of repository did you use? If you only installed the kernel from whichever source you got it, get the modules from the same source. But frankly, this has me puzzled... if you it all by the book, there's no reason why this should have happened. Normally, if you install a new kernel using the repositories (you said something about updates, so I guess you did), the modules and all tools are installed with it. The "reboot" advice points at the installation of a new kernel, too...

Can you still boot to the old kernel and use that? If that's the case, you can use apt-get or Synaptic to look for the modules set and install it.

I am pretty sure I installed ubuntu 8.10 and that the error was the one I posted before. "wicho" is only the hostname, not the name of the kernel. It seems that one the updates was corrupted and that caused the problem, but I have fixed it now, thanks for answering.
