Ubuntu 8.10(Intrepid Ibex) frozen login screen

For Ubuntu 8.10 users - Sometimes after installing the Ubuntu 8.10 and when the system is rebooted and after login screen is displayed the system gets stuck and keyboard and mouse don't respond or Sometimes the welcome screen doesn't appear for atleast 20 secs.
This is because Compiz libraries which were installed under Ubuntu 8.10.
After remove Compiz the problem will be solved.
How to?
Reboot the system and choose "Recovery Mode" and start terminal as root.
Then use the following commands to remove the Compiz and Compiz-Core.

apt-get remove compiz
apt-get remove compiz-core

Then exit from the terminal and reboot the system.

Thank you so much for your advice. Worked like a charm and my system is operational again. I only stopped on 8.10 during an upgrade to 9.04.. wow not cool compiz!

Thanks again.
