Re: Report on Latest Testing (Bullseys) Weekly Build

MATE accepts my password for my username, but goes into an infinite loop after I log in and puts me back to log in screen on lightdm.

If I log in using root and use "systemctl stop lightdm" and systemctl disable lightdm", I can log in to Debian Bullseye because there is no graphic interface running.

I don't remember specifically if I could log in, with the text log in, then try "startx" but I'm sure I did, but I'm making a note to try this again, because I am going to run "journalctl -f" in another console when attempting to log in.

I do remember changing the password to the "real" user password, it made no difference, next boot, the situation was still the same.

More later.

Did you try setting the password again (while logged in as root)?

Also run journalctl -f in another console while attempting to log in,
and check any log entries that are created. These will probably give
clues as to the issue.
