I just rebooted my Natty install and have it set to log me in w/o a

What may have happened?
Your login session seems to be crashing.
Can you switch to a text console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), log in, and look at the
.xsession-errors file for clues (less .xsession-errors)?
Alternatively, try choosing a different session type in the login
A different session was my first thought after running "fix broken
packages" from the recovery mode, however there are only two choices at
the login screen, one is to shutdown, logoff, etc., the other is
assistive tools or something like that. There is no sessions
choice/button. ACPI was one thing that was updated but made no
difference. Then I found someone who resolved the issue by adding:
Option "AIGLX" "off"
to the xorg.conf file.
now it's hanging at the splash screen.
I'll give it a few minutes to see if anything happens - can't get to a
console ATM, then I'll have a look at .xsession-errors.
