I am running Ubuntu 17.10 in virtualbox. It was working fine but now when I turn it on it says "recovering journal" and then comes up messages about removing orphaned inode. The screen then goes black and the window keeps re-sizing.
From Googling about it seem like it might be a driver issue with an update and the advice given is to boot into the command line and remove graphic drivers but how do I get to the command line? It just gives black screen.
I tried the boot cd and it works fine, I an still see all my files but how can I get to command line in the actual installed ubuntu to remove the drivers to see if that fixes issue?
edit: i discovered recovery console and tried fixing packages but still same issue. Is it possible to install ubuntu again but retain my files? I dont have any backups or snapshots
