i'm about my home pc now:
i turned it on this morning, i upgraded, worked a bit, switched it off and left
when i got home io tunred it on again, but... rather than starting the desktop manager it gives me a blank screen:
i tried to boot from previous kernels, tried ot enter dpkgg-reconfigure kdm and lightdm but i still can't get graphical...
as far as i remember i upgraded libc6 and marble
I have upgraded one sparky spin, libc6 have been upgraded but it is still the same version 2.17. Can you try to run the system in safe mode and run startx manualy?
Yes i did
And i get the very same result
Run it again in safe mode with startx command. Don't shut it down, copy 2 files:
and post theme.
As an addition for our mails I have another idea.
I've found similar issue when I was creating sparky 3.0
Try to change the display manager from kdm to lightdm.
Edit file /home/you/.dmrc and change whatever ther is for:
Create a file /home/you/.xsession and put it there:
Then reboot and let me know is any better.
this time i've been LUCKY...
i tried as you said but it didn't change much
so i told myself, why not to install some other display manager..
so i typed
apt-get install simple
actually i meant slim (but i really could not recall) and i was told no package found but there are some unsolved dependencies: there were a dozen libcg6 files and some other things and i followed apt suggesiton
and some little more arguing boot and dm work... (and slim is soooo ugly)
thank you pavroo, sorry for bothering
