Command Shell Corruption Issue
The background for my situation is this: I have cobbled together a computer using a bunch of old but working parts from my pile of spares, and have decided to have a go at using Ubuntu Linux. Having read up on a variety of resources, finding out what exactly linux is, how it is different to windows etc I then burned myself a Ubuntu disk. I have installed it successfully and can use apps on the desktop and it boots from the disk in under 20 seconds on PATA hard drives, but when I try to use the command shell (ctrl+alt+f1) I get this on my screen:
Cant post links yet, the address is the filesmelt.com address with this on the end "dl/DSC026921.JPG"
The Ubuntu desktop environment is fine, can launch the applications and everything, but when I press ctrl+atl+f1 to go to the command shell I get this screen. Any ideas?
2 PATA hard drives
Matrox graphics card
580w Hiper PSU

Checkout whether the preferences->shortcuts properly configured and also You should able to access command shell using something like "Accessories->Terminal"
