    PC unable to start, low graphic

    Hi all,

    Host Ubuntu 12.04 desktop 64bit
    VM Ubuntu 12.04 server 64bit
    Virtualizer Oracle VirtualBox

    I followed;
    Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 12.10)
    Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 12.10) | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials

    installing the LAMP server on the VM running remote installation on the host terminal vis ssh. It worked without problem. After having finished "1 Preliminary Note" I took a break with the PC switched off.

    After the break I started the PC and the server on the VM. Unfortunately I forgot to run;
    $ ssh user@
    on the host terminal to login on the server.

    Then I followed "2 Install Postfix, Courier, Saslauthd, MySQL, phpMyAdmin" installing;
    $ sudo apt-get install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc mysql-client mysql-server courier-authdaemon courier-authlib-mysql courier-pop courier-pop-ssl courier-imap courier-imap-ssl libsasl2-2 libsasl2-modules libsasl2-modules-sql sasl2-bin libpam-mysql openssl phpmyadmin apache2 libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-mysql libpam-smbpass
    installing those packages on the host terminal and finished up to "4 Create The MySQL Database For Postfix/Courier".

    Then I realised having made this mistake installing those packages on the host. I started removing the installed packages on host terminal by;

    $ apt-get remove postfix
    (no problem)

    $ sudo apt-get phpmyadmin apache2 libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-mysql
    (also no problem)

    IIRC on running;
    $ sudo apt-get openssl

    I was NOT allowed to remove it, suggesting to run "autoremove"

    On running;
    $ sudo apt-get autoremove openssl
    Suddenly I saw it starting removing GNOME packages.

    I could not stop the action even with the terminal closed.

    I switched to F3 (Text Mode) and rebooted PC. But I could not started the host, warning low graphic.

    I think I could start rescue mode dropping to shell. Please help how to rescue this PC. There are about 20 VMs running on this box.

    sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop
    and possibly
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    afterwards (although this may be outdated).
