Can some Linux/GNU genius please explain to me why?
Installing Solus OS Gnome from live USB.
-Black screen, blinking cursor
-Login to TTY
-Type systemctl stop gdm.service
-Type systemctl start gdm.service
And everything boots fine again.
@oscarhall Try reboot without the systemctl commands?
Is this only the first time after install?
What happens if you press Ctrl+Alt+F7 instead?
@oscarhall What does "systemctl status gdm.service" give you?
Perhaps this will help:
@oscarhall what about this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GDM#GDM_shows_black_screen_with_blinking_white_cursor... eventually GDM is starting to early and you have to add some sleep to it...
Aha, I think its this! 👍
Of course info from Arch boys... You have some excellent wiki/knowledge thou...
Too bad Plex-Media-Server refuses to work with any Arch based distro (you have to reclaim the server after each reboot) or I would be joining you long time ago.
