Hi, by posting like this (deleting everything in previous messages),
you make it difficult for others to jump in and help.

To recap (correct me if I get a detail wrong), you've dist-upgraded
from Breezy to Dapper. Everything seemed to go OK until you rebooted
and X wouldn't start. You say you've tried dpkg-reconfigure and it
didn't help. I assume that means you did a cursory run through and
accepted all the defaults. (That's fine, that's often all that's

I'd suggest making sure that the dist-upgrade completely successfully
by checking once more that all instances of breezy are changed to
dapper in /etc/apt/sources.list and then doing:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
