http://askubuntu.com – I am currently unable to boot up my ubuntu 10.4, the system blacks out after displaying the error message of: hostname main process (#) terminated with status 4 polymouth-stop pre-start process (#) terminated with status 1 Going into recovery mode does not help, the latest recovery gives the same error. I am currently using a usb to boot up the machine, I can see all my files fine, and is able to access / modify them. The last thing I did on this machine before it ran into this issue was trying to update the system. I ran the command: sudo aptitude update sudo aptitude install dkms (HowTos)
