Question about Canonical Ltd. Ubuntu
I have a ubuntu kernel problem, nn the boot menu I select "Ubuntu", next this happens -
"kernel Normal mode
Error 1: Filename must be either an absolute pathname or blocklist
Press any key to continue..._"
Hitting a key doesn't improve the situation….
What's going on here...
Ok, what you nedd to do is to start your pc, and just before coming to the grub graphic Ubuntu logo press the esc key, you will see a list of kernel, choose the previous kernel and press enter, when you are logged in, go to application, accessorie, terminal, and type "sudo apt-get update" without the "" and press enter. Then when it has done it you will see something like this richard@richard-desktop:~$
now type "sudo apt-get install update"
any problem come back to me firstname.lastname@example.org

Click "Applications" and then click "Accessories" on the top taskbar in the Ubuntu desktop.
Click "Terminal" to open a terminal window.
Type the following command at the Linux prompt and press the "Enter" key:
To change the Administrator account password, the password of "root" is changed.
The "sudo" command gives the current user temporary Administrator access, in this instance, to change the password of "root."
First, the user will see a Unix prompt asking for the current user's password.
Type the user password for the current user account. Press the "Enter" key. Next, Unix will prompt the user for the new password for "root."
Type the new password for "root." Press "Enter." Finally, a Unix prompt will require a confirmation of the password.
Retype the new password for root, and press "Enter." The Administrator (root) account password for Ubuntu is now reset
Boot computer into recovery mode. Reset your computer and as it is booting, hold down the "Shift" key on your keyboard.
You will be presented with the boot menu.
Select "Recovery Mode" from the boot menu.
It is usually the the second boot option.
Wait for computer to boot up.
You will be presented with the Recovery Menu. Select "Drop to Root Shell Prompt."
Type "ls /home" and press "Enter." Note:
The command starts with a lower case L, not a capital i.
You will be presented with a list of usernames of accounts installed on the computer.
Type "passwd username" where username is replaced by the name of the account you want to reset. For example, if the username of your account was "jeff" you would type "passwd jeff" and press "Enter." You will be prompted to create a new password.
Enter a new password of your choosing.
Note: You will see no visual response when you type in your newly selected password; however, the computer still will register the input. Press "Enter."
You will be asked to retype your password.
Re-enter the same password and press "Enter."
Your password is now reset.
Type "Exit" to return to the boot menu and select "Resume Normal Boot" to restart Ubuntu.
hope this helps

In Ubuntu 9.04 click on the main icon and select Restart.
- If Ubuntu is the only operating system on your computer you'll need to tap the ESC key as the system boots.
- If you have a dual boot or multiple-boot system the menu should appear on its own.
- At the root level you'll get a boot menu. Select the one that says "recovery mode" and press Enter.
- Ubuntu continues to load until you reach the Recovery Menu.
- Arrow down to "

Choose your city, and click Forward. Don't worry if the time zone is not OK, you can change that later when you login to Ubuntu.
Next, you will need to choose your Keyboard layout, if you are in the US, mostly all your options will be the default. If you are not in the US, choose your settings accordingly. Click Forward.
