So i went to work this afternoon, and for some reason my BT5 wont load. I dont get the log in screen or anything. It will come up to the BT background image, the one right before you log in, but that is it. I hit the Esc key and it just slowly starts scrolling commands. Not sure what they all are as it is sometimes too fast to read. Is there any way to repair it from the boot command or what. First time this has happened in my Linux life.

No new hardware or software was installed, everything was working fine the night before last. :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

I've never used it myself. Due to it being for penetration testing, I doubt you'll find a lot of help here. I'd suggest you trying searching the forum or asking for help there.

Just wondering if there was any one that had the same problem. Backtrack 5 is almost the same as Ubuntu, so there is not that much difference between them two. Give it a few days then i will reinstall the OS

If it's like Ubuntu, then my guess is some update screwed the pooch. They used to do that to me a lot. You might find an answer to the problem on the Ubuntu forum in that case.
