Re: Update this morning killed local login.
I also had some bizarre behaviour last night after an
update on a potato machine. Unlike your situation,
everything boots fine and I can log in on X, but I
only get a console. After poking around for a little
while I figure that the problem is probably a switch
to use the x-window-manager utility and the fact that
my default window manager (afterstep) is not listed in
my alternatives directory.
Can anyone confirm that the switch was made? I was always
getting a message saying that the old utility was about
to become obsolete...is this now the case?
..and/or are these two problems related?
