Ubuntu won't boot error missing

Hello All

I am a absolute nooooobie, and have to date enjoyed the experience of learning Linux.

I now have an issue that I cannot seem to resolve and would appreceiate any help to resolve.

Following an update of Ubuntu and reboot I have come accross the following error (Not also recently installed Realtek AC97 Driver)

Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds......


/etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
Setting IM through im-switch for locale=en_NZ.
Start IM through /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/all_All linked to /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default.
/usr/bin/seahorse-agent: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
Could someone please advise where too from here as I can only load terminal at this point.

I have searched through a number of threads on this and it would appear most people that have had this error have been able to complete their boot sequence.

Thanks in advance.

2) inspect the contents of /var/log/messages in the search for more information.
3) try re-installing libasound2 (which provides
