Re: Black screen before login

Yes, but nothing heappens. I did the steps:

Turn on the computer;
The graphical login prompt appears;
Press ctrl+alt+F1;
Command line login appears;
Log as root;
Did the comand;
The black screen appears;
Pressed ctrl+alt+F1, many times, nothing heappeans;
The graphical login prompt appears again;
Pressed ctrl+alt+F1, the command line appears, with the text of the Xorg.0.log printted in the screen.
Repeat the command, many times, same result.

Thanks, again.

Did you try ctrl-alt-f1 to return to the console from which you issued
the command?

Unfortunately, no. It is just a warning that the X server cannot use
ACPI for power management.
