Re: gdm loops into gdm

It does not "boot" into gdm, when you log in gnome-shell or something in the gnome-session crashes and fails to start leading to gdm being restarted.

To fix that you will have to look into the log files. You can do so by pressing ctrl+alt+f4 log in and then do: sudo journalctl -b

there you check for any errormessages by gnome-shell or anything gnomy you find...

You might be able to fix it yourself, but you can also come back with the additional information.

hope that helps!

Sorry, it is not

systemctl restart gdm

It is...

sudo systemctl enable gdm


sudo systemctl start gdm

But this did not help.

gdm still boots into gdm after login.

After doing research I found that this has to do with tty0 and tty1. Somehow gdm is set wrong to display and comes back to tty0?!

    Hello... Here is acer 3830TG with nvidia cuda geforce 540M. Solus
    Linux 3.999 is running with gnome.

    I made a failure with nvidia package.
    I thought nvidia video package for 32 bit would be necessary for
    Installation of steam.

    So I made rollback and removed nvidia 32 bit package. This
    affected gnome with gdm so that gdm is not booting into desktop
    any more. Instead gdm bumps back to gdm, as if password is ignored
    for login.

    I made reinstallation of gnome-shell with gdm and reinstalled
    nvidia 390 package.
    I Did systemctl restart gdm - But nothing helped.
    gdm returns to gdm.

    Any idea?
