    Default Rescuing a boot-to-black-screen system

    After an upgrade to the latest Ubuntu I'm booting into a black screen... the only way to get some response is with alt+sysrq+e

    Here's all my logs:

    So I'm trying to figure out how to rescue with Backtrack. I'm impressed with RC2; it's the only distro I've found so far to boot straight but without x... yet wifi works with wicd no problem.

    p.s. I bought this CD from a 3rd party. How do I check it hasn't been fiddled with?

    This is not the ubuntu forums nor do we support people downloading BT from outside the official sources, that we provide.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.
