…and again…

Filed under: dator / computer — pl @ 18:28

The last thing I did “yesterday” was to add language support for Chinese (and Swedish), but instead of restarting the system, I shut it down and went to bed.

This “morning”, when I restarted my computer, everything went reeeally slow.
The GUI was starting up …but …never …really …finished.
I got some sort of Error message, but due to having left the computer for a while and the screensaver “taking over”, the message in itself was greyed out.
Restarted it a couple of more times, with the same result each time (apart from the Error messages adding up… ).
Finally, I sat down by the computer, “moving the cursor pointer now and then” (to avoid the screensaver; the pointer reacted slowly, though), and could then see the Error message (the top one, at least) – it was an error message re a keyboard applet, and I highly suspected it being due to the Chinese language support.
The options given were “Don’t Delete” and “Delete. Tried to choose “Delete”, but failed. Multiple times.

So.
I reinstalled the OS (Ubuntu 8.04). Again.
This time only adding Swedish language support, maybe I’ll try adding Chinese later on (but it’s not “high priority” right now).
