Debian Gnome stretch cannot boot

Postby harshit21 » 2017-08-04 03:44

Earlier, I was running Xubuntu, so I thought to try Debian 9 Gnome live. I had the separate root(/) & home(/home) partitions. So after trying the Debian in live mode, I installed it. Before installing, I changed my home directory name to a new one as I used the same account name in new install as well i.e.

Earlier
Code: Select all
/home/harshit


Later
Code: Select all
/home/harshit.bak


harshit.bak contains the whole of my data. Although, Xubuntu again created the /home/harshit dir instantly after rename. So, while installing debian, I only formatted / & swap partition, not the /home partition. After it installed successfully, I rebooted the system. After login in, it remains stuck on a grey screen. It doesn't move forward.

I am not sure what the issue is. Is this the problem with the home directory or owner problem?

I am using Debian 9.1.0 Gnome version.

Thanks

Try use LiveCD empty your new /home/harshit (empty it not delete it)
Maybe some Xubuntu configuration file in your new home is incompatible with Gnome.
