Blinking cursor after debian 9 to 10 upgrade

Postby kcinnad » 2020-02-13 21:33

So as the title says, I updated to debian 10.
I modified /etc/apt/source.list and replaced every instance of stretch to buster
Then i did
Code: Select all
# apt update && apt upgrade && apt dist-upgrade

after the reboot, i was booting in TTY
I tried to restart gdm, but every time I get a white blinking cursor
Same with lxdm or sddm or lightdm I tried them all haha

I tried to reinstall/purge gnome, gdm, xorg, xorg-server-core and nvidia drivers, same outcome ...
I don't know what my next step would be at the moment

I'll be more than happy to provide logs or command outputs if needed

Thanks in advance,
Kcinnad

If you are using proprietary video drivers, you should revert to the free drivers before attempting an upgrade from one release to another.
