Thread: Booting issues

  1. #1

    Default Booting issues

    Hi,

    I am in the process of upgrading to Leap 15.2 when the computer suddenly shut down. When I restart, I was led to the CLI, and not the usual GUI login. From the CLI, I managed to go to yast control center as shown below:

    May I know what to do to restore to the GUI login please?

    Thanks for help.

    Hi
    Did it finish the upgrade? You could add the boot option via editing grub and add nomodeset to see if that helps, what graphics card is in your system?

    Hi
    So I would suggest you re-run the update command from the terminal session to ensure it finishes, then see if all good.

    To add the nomodeset option, at grub press the 'e' key to edit and scroll down to the line beginning linux or linuxefi (if UEFI booting) and press the end key and spacebar then type in nomodeset and press F10 to boot the system.

    After rebooting, it is here

    I ran the command
    Code:
    zypper repos --uri
    and got this:

    Don't think the upgrade is successful and the fonts are quite big that they fill the screen(I tried adjusting the monitor too)

    Thanks for help again.

    You will not have normal res until you get the NVIDIA driver up again

    So did you run zypper up ?????

    If you are running on BTRFS with snapper you could try reverting There are selection on the advanced boot menu

    your network is probably not setup, which is why your update fails from command line. Just out of curiosity, what does your command line say when you type in
    Code:
    startx
    startx is to start xserver, for me 9/10 times when I get such (non-GUI boot) issues, it is resolved by removing (all or Nvidia) entries located in
    Code:
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

    Rerun snapper and this time when you rollback, select an image with a time/date prior to when your problems started happening.
    That should return you to a working system, and then you can run "zypper update" to update to current and anything else you were trying to do.

    Hi Tsu,

    Rerun snapper and this time when you rollback


    There is only a snapshot before the problems started as I deleted any prior ones to free up memory. I have a couple of snapshots after the problems started but I guess they would not be useful...

    Do I do this if 163 is the last snapshot that is relevant?
    Code:
    sudo snapper rollback 163
    Thanks
