ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 5082
Boot into Xterm after shrinking of partitions
Last modified: 2015-02-21 16:20:47 MSK
Description of problem:
After GRUB, ROSA boot directly into a Xterm instance, sometimes with the default (root) wallpaper, sometimes with a black screen. startkde fix this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I shrink the /home and / partition of ROSA and guess, this creates the error.
2. I think, its not (really) reproduce able.
3. Just send me a fix for this please. This device is for an old man, which get confused, when he have to input a command each time on startup. :)
When this happens the very first time, it happens on a already booted ROSA session and results in KDM. As we log in there, the issue happens the first time.
Please let me know, if i can send you any details, here is a hw-probe:
Try to remove nvidia drivers: sudo urpme dkms-nvidia340 x11-driver-video-nvidia340
And reconfigure nouveau graphics: XFdrake
And then reboot.
I do that with both, free and non free drivers and it takes no effect.
Boot into Xterm means boot into recovery mode: it t would have been nice if you make me aware about that ;)
I was not aware about it, because i choose automatic login:
Recovery mode was set as the default login option, that was the issue.
For other users:
Change in your login manager (where you type in your password) the boot option from recovery mode to KDE/LXDE/what ever.
In the default log in manager (KDM) is that available in the settings menu on the lower left: http://www.rosalab.com/system/images/13/medium/KDM.png?1345203603
I hope, that helps
