Moved home directory in ubuntu and now I can't boot?
While trying to set up a samba server, I was experimenting in the terminal (noob to linux, though I hope to get better) and I was trying to use the 'mv' command to move an edited file into the etc/samba folder. What ended up happening was, i copied the whole home directory. So I restarted, and after trying to login I got a large amount of errors, ending with no ubuntu.
First question, how do you suggest I go about fixing this?
Second question: how do i properly use the mv command.
lots of rep for someone that can help
Is there any other way to do it without reinstalling the operating system? If i ran a version of of ubuntu off of a flash drive could i access the terminal from there and change it?
if so how do i correctly type the mv command to fix it
