system will not boot up ,only works with Ubuntu disc inserted.

Asked by David on 2008-03-20

Binary package hint: nautilus

Last night I installed TimeVault hoping to be able to backup my system , that seemed OK I shut the system down then when I tried to boot up today I found it would not do so and kept asking if DCOP server was on and having only very limited knowledge I do not know.. I am using Ubuntu 7.10 ,Xubuntu and kubuntu. Can you help or will I have to re-install ?
