Laptop cannot finish booting - Again!

dpkg.log showing what packages were updated. One of these must have caused the problem.

Since the team maintaining Ascii seems to not be very well coordinated, causing these conflicts, maybe it's time to upgrade to Beowulf...

Re: Laptop cannot finish booting - Again!

I'm using Chimaera, & it seems to be perfectly stable - maybe, back up all your personal data, (which you should do anyway), & do a clean install of Chimaera.

Re: Laptop cannot finish booting - Again!

Your packages, installed when you update your sistem, is broken. Performing the following commands will try and fix any broken packages currently installed on your system:

sudo apt-get update --fix-missing
sudo apt-get install -f

(the -f option is short for fix-broken.)

Also, you can try use a second metod. This solution will help out if a software package broke while being installed. You can try using the previous method before continuing, as it may help. First, we clean apt-get and try using dpkg to configure any packages that need it:

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update

Re: Laptop cannot finish booting - Again!

SLiM is old and broken. Does startx work from the console?

FWIW the X.Org log looks truncated.

Re: Laptop cannot finish booting - Again!

I gave Slim a try on ASCII and abandoned it for LightDM. Get rid of Slim. I consider it to be a pain .....

And consider upgrading to Beowulf, works fine. Meanwhile I am on Chimaera on all the every day used computers. Its rock stable.

Re: Laptop cannot finish booting - Again!

Well, it at least booted into kernel 4.9.0-16 after the recommended repair commands. Today I simply ran 'aptitude update' and 'aptitude safe-upgrade' and rebooted to see if everything still worked, and it did not. This time it froze in the middle of entering the password. Could not unfreeze it. Had to use hard power shutdown again. It still boots into 2.9.0-15 though.

Here is what was updated today. Why would this make the system freeze at the login prompt?

Start-Date: 2021-09-30  18:03:58
Upgrade: libkrb5-3:amd64 (1.15-1+deb9u2, 1.15-1+deb9u3), libgssapi-krb5-2:amd64 (1.15-1+deb9u2, 1.15-1+deb9u3), libcurl3:amd64 (7.52.1-5+deb9u15, 7.52.1-5+deb9u16), openssl:amd64 (1.1.0l-1~deb9u3, 1.1.0l-1~deb9u4), libk5crypto3:amd64 (1.15-1+deb9u2, 1.15-1+deb9u3), libkrb5support0:amd64 (1.15-1+deb9u2, 1.15-1+deb9u3), libtag1v5:amd64 (1.11.1+dfsg.1-0.1, 1.11.1+dfsg.1-0.3+deb9u1), libtagc0:amd64 (1.11.1+dfsg.1-0.1, 1.11.1+dfsg.1-0.3+deb9u1), libssl1.1:amd64 (1.1.0l-1~deb9u3, 1.1.0l-1~deb9u4), libtag1v5-vanilla:amd64 (1.11.1+dfsg.1-0.1, 1.11.1+dfsg.1-0.3+deb9u1), libcurl3-gnutls:amd64 (7.52.1-5+deb9u15, 7.52.1-5+deb9u16), libssl1.0.2:amd64 (1.0.2u-1~deb9u5, 1.0.2u-1~deb9u6)

Ascii has become endless frustration on this laptop. Still works fine on the desktops.

I did not choose the display manager, I simply got whatever the default is. Is there some reasonably simply config file that can be changed to use a different display manager?

Yes, I'm getting seriously interested in upgrading. This string of disabling screwups is really getting frustrating.

Well, meanwhile I know what I want and how to install a system with SW I want from CLI level onward. I have read the release notes and the recommendations of the suitable combinations. I am happy with lightdm.

What I do is:
apt install xorg
apt install lightdm
apt install mate-desktop-environment-extras --no-install-recommends on older PCs/for my wife
apt install cinnamon --no-install-recommends on my workstation and laptop.

followed by installation of all the goodies I use and need (got a nice piece of paper documenting my procedures and experiences).

About switching the display manager: I have no experience with that.
