[SOLVED]Desktop stubborn to load after update from backports

Postby KBD47 » 2018-08-08 23:51

I got a bit greedy and updated my MATE desktop and the kernel from Debian Stretch Backports. Everything works all the way up to logging in and the start of the desktop loading, but it just doesn't load the desktop. I can trigger it to load if I push my power button as if waking from sleep, then everything is fine. But some sort of glitch keeping the desktop from loading properly.
Yeah I broke my own rule of 'it it ain't broke don't fix it'. I had no issue in the past using backports so I thought it would be OK.
Thinking it might just be a MATE problem I installed Xfce and logged into it, rebooted and same issue, it hangs before loading the desktop.
I welcome any help or ideas to fix this.
Edit: Never mind, I fixed it. I booted into the older 4.9 kernel and removed the newer 4.17 kernel which caused the issue. I'll leave this here in case someone else has this issue.
