SOS can't login after update [Solved]

Postby fjkhf » Tue Oct 29, 2013 9:05

Hello ,

After I did update I can't login.I have X environment , I am going to login screen , I enter my password but nothing happens.
It still shows the 'gray' screen (not the login option though).

I have KDE and GNOME and I tried to login to both but the same problem.

What can I do??

Thank you!

can you get to a command prompt and issue the command

passwd

to change your password? You should be able to crtl alt F1 on the login screen to get to a prompt

Ok , I fixed it.

I show that it has selected the old kernel and xorg driver instead of nvidia.

I checked with
Code: Select all
eselect kernel list
and
Code: Select all
 opengl list
.

Thanks!
