I have TW running on a Dell laptop - it’s been running fine for months.
The root partition is BTRFS and includes /home (no separate /home partition).
I connect to my local home Wifi network using NetworkManager.
Normally, it boots to the KDE-Plasma GUI login - I log in and then presented with my KDE-Plasma Desktop.
A couple of days ago, I went into Yast GUI, in the Systems section, then clicked on Network Settings. An error was displayed that “networking is configured using NetworkManager, and Yast can’t modify some settings”.
So, I cancelled out and went to do other chores. I did a zypper dup, then rebooted the system and suddenly, the text console is displayed showing a login prompt. It did not boot up to the KDE-Plasma login screen.
So I logged in with my user account and ran “startx” and my KDE-Plasma desktop is displayed as usual and I have no problems using it.
Not sure what happened, though I have an idea … when I clicked on the Yast → Network Settings, some low-level network configuration settings were altered, even though I cancelled out after reading the “Yast can’t make changes” error message.
When I boot up, it’s as though the GUI login screen is going to be displayed, but then it shows the text-mode console screen
It shows a login prompt, then interrupts, showing information about the network connections, like it’s trying to connect to Wifi and ethernet 2 to 3 times, then the final login prompt is displayed.
Here’s the console output … and I also post the results from journalctl --boot -1
