the upgrade went fine until the very end when it wanted to configure the x
server. the install had an error and went into an endless loop to the same
point over & over. so i selected exit. and i went to re-boot for the 1st
time. the graphical loading screen comes up (and looks nice) but then it
hangs. i'm a newbie. but have messed with linux a little before. what can i
check or do to make it fully boot up?
