Cant loggin STUCK ON LOGIN

Postby tptssss » 2020-03-29 18:18

installed Debian no problem, and rebooted the system. Instead of going to the usual login place, I had to login in the command line. So I punched in my login name which I'd set up in the installation along with the password. It worked, but that's it - I can't get out of the command line!

Yes, I know. Isn't it awesome? :mrgreen:

What is it that you actually want to do? What is the problem here?

Oh boy!

Can you tell how did you install, what media did you use, where did you get it?

It's your choice to do what you want, but vm installation just makes things more complicated and harder to troubleshoot.
