EL crashing at startup on Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

Last night I was prompted to do a normal update on Ubuntu and today EL crashes at startup before it even gets to the signin screen.


I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTSl


It looks like the kernel version is: linux-headers-2.6.32-49-generic (2.6.32-49.111)


According to the package logfile, the last updates were:


Start-Date: 2013-07-15 20:15:13

Upgrade: python-libxml2 (2.7.6.dfsg-1ubuntu1.8, 2.7.6.dfsg-1ubuntu1.9),

libxml2 (2.7.6.dfsg-1ubuntu1.8, 2.7.6.dfsg-1ubuntu1.9),

libxml2-utils (2.7.6.dfsg-1ubuntu1.8, 2.7.6.dfsg-1ubuntu1.9)

End-Date: 2013-07-15 20:15:29


I'm going to try rebooting to the previous kernel version next.


Anyone have any ideas what is going on or what I can do to fix it?

Instructions for manually rolling back the three libxml2 files from 4.5 to 4.4 in Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise). You should be able to adapt the instructions/links to Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid).




WARNING: This effectively uninstalls the security patches for these three files.

Also, if you 'sudo apt-get upgrade' or cron automatically applies security updates for you, then these three files will be upgraded to 4.5 again or later.
