  1. #1

    Exclamation Issue with xdm.services

    After the last update of OpenSuse Tumbleweed 20190417 and the last update of Gnome Shell 3.30.2,
    When I try to login, it make loginloop. Then I need to restart xdm.services and then everything works as usual.

    How can I fix this issue.

    P.S.

    I have tried with Xorg and WayLand.

    Default Re: Issue with xdm.services

    After an unsuccessful login and you have to re-login, you should be able to view your current bootlog with the following command, you should be able to locate your failure sometime just before you have to restart gdm and re-login.
    Code:
    journalctl -b
    If you're unable to figure out what is happening, you can upload your bootlog to a pastebin and then post the link here.
    If you need to create a file containing your bootlog, the following can do that
    Code:
    journalctl -b > somefilename.txt

    Wherever and whenever you want to post something that's not allowed,
    You can post to a pastebin.

    The big general purpsoe pastebin
    http://pastebin.com

    Like most other distros, opensuse also has its own pastebin
    https://paste.opensuse.org/

    You can paste the contents (preferred because the file can be read online), or the file uploaded which will downloading before it can be read.
    When you create your pastebin, the URL will change and you can then post that to this Forum for others to visit.

    I see a lot of snapshots related errors.

    Have you checked your disk for free space?
    Perhaps you've run out of space and need to manually remove some snapshot data.

    Also,
    I see you have Virtualbox installed.
    Interesting now that I think about it especially with 15.1 now installing /home as BTRFS by default, is your Virtualbox disk storage on BTRFS or something else (likely XFS)?

    I am talking about xdm.services on real bear machine. My VirtualBox doesn't have any disk storage.

    The issue is that when I restart my real machine, and when I want to login, it become looplogin.
    Than I need to restat xdm.services, and than everything is ok.

    Kind Regards,

    Ivo Nenchev

    Before you login 2nd time, switch to an terminal with STRG+ALT+F2, login as root and execute:

    Code:
    systemctl status xdm.service > /home/USERNAME/xdm.txt
    Expand USERNAME with your existing Username and you will get xdm.txt in your Users /home.
