No GUI after upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 (boots to command line)

I have just upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10 (network upgrade using the update manager, from 9.04 which had different graphics related problems) and when I try to boot into it all I get a small Ubuntu logo, flickering text and then the tty1 command line with a logon prompt.

Does it go straight to a text login prompt, or does it flicker, trying to go graphical, and then fail back to a prompt? If there's no flicker, you probably don't have an X server installed. Install xserver-xorg and gdm.

"Type the below command

X -configure

After the above process completes, run file system consistency check by typing below command

fsck

After the file system check is completed, Reboot you linux box by typing

init 6

You will get GUI login, it worked for me."
