Software - Support > Installing Linux Lite

Recommended CLI Commands to Execute for Error Log?

(1/2) > >>

I'm running Linux Lite 6.0 rc. Everything has been going fine until I played around too much. I made some changes in the display UI and my laptop froze. Upon reboot it sent me to the infamous login loop. I used Ctrl+Alt+F2 and was able to successfully login - username and password worked. Account/credentials are good. I'm now at the CLI.

As mentioned above this seems to be set off by me playing with the graphics settings.

Here’s the question... What commands do I need to run that will help diagnose the problem?

Thank you.

I booted from the Linux Lite 6.0 USB Stick install source. Once I was at the trial version desktop went to my system snapshots and I'm installing my first clean setup from there.

Once the snapshot is complete I'll report back my results.

I'm also gathering all the CLI tutorials I can find. I may not know the answers, but I'll know where to find them.

Nope, that didn't fix my login problem. My laptop returned to the same username/password page as before. It should automatically login. The boot loops continue.

I'm not that far in to do a complete new/fresh install.

If you reverted a snapshot or backup?? was that prior to setting auto login?
When you log on is this a normal login or a tty session (Ctrl+Alt+F2) ... To exit or return to GUI try -  Ctrl+Alt+F7 ..
- Should you attempt to undo or fix via the tty...
Might be worth a try log in and set up auto login again??

Trying to understand the issue a bit more.

What tweaks were done just before the machine froze.

A description of what happens might help.

Is this using Timeshift aka System Restore Utility or DejaDup aka Backups or something else

Just a suggestion, but  after logging in to the tty via ctrl+alt+f2 maybe try the command

--- Code: ---startx
--- End code ---

Followed by return and post the result with any error messages
