My first post to this forum... hoping someone can help.
Ubuntu Linux 6.06 installed successfully under Parallels 3.0 build 5582, on an iMac C2D 2.16 GHz with 2 GB RAM. (running OS X 10.4.10)
After updating the OS with the "build-essential" package (as indicated in a MacWorld Oct. '07 article) and restarting, it was time to install Parallels Tools, which seemed to go without a hitch.
Until the restart, that is...
Without fail, once Ubuntu Linux restarts following the Parallels Tools installation, it seems to run through a few of the login scripts, but hangs indefinitely at a black screen at the point where X-Windows should begin prompting for my login information.
I've searched both these forums (the only post I found here didn't seem to indicate a solution) and the Ubuntu forums, but to no avail.
Does anyone know what could be causing this hangup in the boot process?
If so, might someone be able to guide me through the process to fix this? (granted, I'm still on par with my UNIX commands... but it's been a while since I edited UNIX config files...)
Thanks very much!
