I recently installed upstart blindly replacing things I shouldn't of been. The results was that now my raspberry pi is stuck on

Setting up X socket directories... /tmp/.X11-unix /tmp/.ICE-unix

Is there anyway I can fix this without a complete wipe of the OS and starting over? Could I mount card on my laptop (running mint-linux) and repair the files that way or remove upstart?

I've read some posts on the native forum which don't seem to offer many options.
