    I don't know where to post this...here or in the Virtual forum. I opened up my original ubuntu vm deciding to kill some time. It powered up from suspension in VMware as usual. I right-clicked on the desktop and tried to open a terminal. I heard a 'thunk' from the speakers and the terminal failed to open. No clocking...just nothing.

    I went to Applications -> System Tools -> Root Terminal and clicked it. I heard the 'thunk' but there was some clocking. The clocking stopped and the terminal failed to open.

    Taking a leaf from Microsoft's notebook, I decided to reboot. I clicked System -> Log Out but heard the 'thunk' again. Nothing happened. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    Finally, I pressed the Ctrl + Alt + F1 key combo to get to a console. No prompt appeared but a bunch of error messages came up. I could press Enter and type but not log in or issue commands. Take a look at the attachment and tell me what you think. Thanks.

    Bump.

    Did you re-boot the host system and try again Trip?

    If it is still not playing nice after that, my guess is you are going to end up re-installing Ubuntu. Any bets? :D

    I have two ubuntu VMs. One is fine and the other is as described. Never occurred to me to reboot the host. I may try that sometime but in the meanwhile, I've been distracted by another Linux VM. I'll be posting about that in a minute. :)

    Trip,

    Did you get to the bottom of the error?

    Actually Boyce, I haven't even tried. See the "Debian" thread in this forum for details. :wink:
