So, I have a problem that I can't solve on my own. First, I ran the auto updater in ubuntu. everything seemed to work fine, then ...I wanted to install the newest ati driver for linux. so, i followed the instructions on ati's website. it said that I had to uninstall my old driver first. I did what it said and the old one uninstalled (or so i believe) I then went on to the next instruction, trying to run the .run file which didn't work. I thought maybe I had to restart my computer before I could install the new driver. well, now I can't get to the login screen (the gui one in normal mode) I tried to press ctrl+alt+f1 and nothing. the power button works, that's all. so i followed the instructions here: http://linuxfud.wordpress.com/2007/02/14/how-to-reset-ubuntugnome-settings-to-defaults-without-re-installing/
and like I said, i can't get into a terminal when in normal mode so i went to recovery mode and typed in the command the website said. restarted my comp and I still have the same problem.
is there some sort of restore point for my system that I can use? or do you have any other suggestions?
Keep in mind that I'm really linux stupid so dumb things down for me.
thanks for all of your help!
