thanks for all the help and suggestions
as part of fixing the graphical problem in the ubuntu 8.04 server edition as
per the suggestion frmo the mailing list i logged in to the failsafe gnome
mode frmo the log in screen and installed the restrcited packages and then
rebooted and everythign was fine
but now my problem is that i installed an ubuntu 8.04 desktop edition and it
has the same graphics problem and once i log in with user id and passwd it
just returns to the log in screen. i tried the same method of failsafe gnome
with the desktop edition but it didnt work. and when i try to make some
updates with update manager it returns an error which says that it couldnt
fetch from http://de.archive.ubuntu.com... and that couldnt resolve the
shall i in this case go for a reintall ?
