Bill Miller, I can ssh into the system and install packages - apt-get still works, etc. Right now the only thing I can't do is get into the desktop; it shows a login screen but won't accept my password (even though my password works fine in ssh). I think it is because when I tried to install the nVida Linux drivers it removed Noveau, and I can't seem to get it back.
What I am not understanding is what you meant by "the -112" - I assume you are talking about a version number or something, but of what? I went to that link but they are using Synaptic and I have no way to get to that because I can't get into the desktop. Also, unlike that guy, as far as i know I did not "made the mistake of purging the functional kernel" which means that the previous kernel is probably still around on the hard drive, I just don't know how you would set it up to boot into the previous kernel rather than the new kernel. Rather than continue this discussion here I suggest we move it to https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2385621&p=13742281#post13742281 as this is probably not appropriate for the bug tracker, and I suspect many others are affected by this and would like to find a solution. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1750937 Title: 4.4.0-116 Kernel update on 2/21 breaks Nvidia drivers (on 14.04 and 16.04) Status in linux package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in nvidia-graphics-drivers-384 package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in xorg package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: Running fine with nvidia-384 until this kernel update came along.
