I have just upgraded both my desktop and laptop. I rebooted the laptop and can obtain only a terminal login...lightdm or something earlier is failing. I have not rebooted my desktop yet because I fear the same issue might occur. Both the desktop and laptop are running the 5.3 kernel and were LFC'd from a KDE iso. The laptop likely uses an Intel Sandybridge graphics chipset. (It's dual-bootable and that is what Windows is telling me.) I am using the default configuration: stuff like OpenGL uses xorg-x11 and OpenCL uses ocl-icd. Frankly, I don't know what other information you need from me.
1. Since the display manager fails, I login to the terminal as root.
2. As root, I execute "lightdm &". (Perhaps I need to add arguments to the lightdm command, but this isn't my strong suit.)
3. After a short period of time, I can login as a normal user through the normal Sabayon graphical interface and do so. However, not long after this completes, the display manager fails with an error that looks like this:
Code: Select all
(lightdm:901): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 21:26:20.571: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed ** (process:989): WARNING **: 21:26:33.435: Failed to open CK session: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit was not provided by any .service files
I don't know how to recover from this issue. First, I need to know how to correct the issue from the terminal window. At least I still have network access. If I must, I can boot off of a LiveDVD and modify files. I can chroot if necessary.
Please let me know any and all additional information you need from me.
Thank you very much in advance.
