Cannot login localhost login

When i start leap 15 3 i only see the text
Localhost login but how do i login root or my user name does not work?

“does not work” is NOT a good description. What do you do?

Normally you would enter the username (and the Return key). It then would ask for the password (and the return key) and when typing you will not see anything happen). And when both are correct, you will get a prompt line from a shell (probably bash).

Now it is your turn.

BUT,
is it your intention to have a CLI login only? Or is this in fact a thread about something like: I installed 15.3 and I do not get the GUI login screen.

I can not login i get a blach screen with the text loginhost login:
The i type root or username and then enter
the i get again the text localhost login :
What should i type there is no pasword requested?

I can not login i get a black screen with the text localhost login:
The i type root or username and then enter
then i get again the text localhost login :
What should i type there is no pasword requested?

I get a black screen ; localhost login:
What should I type, tried root or my username.Then hit enter and again leap 15.3 shows the text localhost login:
Seems my computer is not starting up the right way i just want to login and then type my pasword . Anybody ?

Sounds like an update got interrupted at a bad time, and/or perhaps you have a full / filesystem. What were you doing on the boot prior to the start of this problem?

I’ve seen this happen before, but don’t remember any easy solution. When you boot rescue media, is there freespace on /? If you’re using BTRFS, you should be able to rollback to a working snapshot.

Yes tere were update but the update asked me to restart . I have enough free space 40 gb.

Who told you that?

Show your partitions:

I know that but free more space was not the problem just want to know what localhost login means ??

It means that no Display Manager was started (you will probably call that “the GUI login”, it is also diagnosed as “X is not starting” and similar).
And thus you see the “normal” login of every Unix/Linux system. And that should allow people, who know a valid username/password combination of the system, to login in the console, thus getting a CLI interface (most probably bash) to the system.

But apart from the fact that you do not get the GUI login, the CLI login does not function either in your case.

This means something more complicated then “no X is starting” is happening.

I doubt this until you provide information supporting your claim.

just want to know what localhost login means ??

localhost prompts for login. Provide your credentials for localhost. Host erlangen prompts me:

“erlangen login:” I enter the user name and when successful erlangen asks for the password. I enter the password and I get logged in:

You can try systemd debug shell (https://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/Debugging/, search for Early Debug Shell), this may give you access to the system so you can investigate further, in particular strace getty/login to see why it fails.

Have you tried to boot from previous kernel option from boot menu???

Then i get failed to start X display manager
Then localhost login :
But i cannot login again.
No idea whar wat localhost login name is .

Then i get fialed X Display Manager.
Then localhost login :
No idea what the localhost name is.

cat /etc/hostname

to find out what the default is. You never configured otherwise.

sudo hostname antons

would change /etc/hostname to antons.

Nowadays hostnamectl is used:

**erlangen:~ #** hostnamectl  
 Static hostname: erlangen 
       Icon name: computer 
        Location: home

Well, rhe hostname of this system seams to be “localhost”, which means you used the default at installation. But that is not very important. Important is that you can not login using either your username, or even root.

Yes and localhost login anton
Does not help.
Su /etc/hostname doen do anything

Yes and hostname anton is not working
Cat/hostname doesn t do anything
