Ubuntu Breezy WEIRD!! boot problem
I am writing this through a live Ubuntu CD as my hard-disk installation of 6 months is seriously screwed.
Ubuntu boots normally until the Gnome Desktop manager login window appears. Then when I try to enter my username - everytime I press a key the screen balnks and changes to a different screen resolution (I get a different sized login window) - my keypress was ignored and further keypresses just do this same behaviour.
The only thing I can notice is that my cursor icons are different than before (weird little icons),
Can I get access to a terminal without booting to a GUI (I know I should have made the option not to boot straight into X thru gnome!!!)
I have data I really need to get from the hard disk quickly (University stuff and photos) - and the live CD wont access the hard disk filesystem!!! Can anyone shed some light on this pleeeeeeeze!!!!!
