That's a PRIVATE pastebin, so nobody other than you can see it.

Might also help if you can mention when the broken pipe started occuring, what had you just done, and where/when do you get the error ?

i get the error at the boot itself. I had just installed the Opencv and it's libraries however i uninstalled(Physically removed by Ctrl+Shift+delete) them.

That's all

So you can boot, but you can't install anything ?
are there any errors from:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
?

hello,

sorry to bother you. I have no luck while getting to console. Previously i could by pressing ctrl+alt+F1 or F2 i can't recall.

I tried booting from Live Pendrive and doing code: mount grep media.

and then i restarted booted by normal Ub and then tried pressing ctrl+alt+F1/F2

no luck :'(

Sorry boss, you should have started a new thread though as this was marked as "Solved" :)

I think when you deleted the folder, something pretty serious in Ubuntu got broken. My guess is that the install of OpenCV was partial, and simply deleting it left some kind of link in place, linking to the now non-existant folder.

Anyway, 14.04 is the future, look forward not backwards!
