[Solved] Xorg not start anymore after poweroff-reboot - trying ininterruptly

Recommended Posts

Hi! 

 

I powered off my tvbox directy by power cord, and after boot can not enter in Xorg anymore, the screen go to black like successful Xorg start and back to console (each try delay 1s - slow blinking) and repeat this process ininterruptly.  Maybe related to lightdm? How to start in console mode to try to fix it?

 

This already happen with two different tv boxes (with buster and now with bullseye).

Plug in a keyboard and hit CTRL+ALT+F1 (try other F* keys as well, usually F7 oder F8 should be X if running properly).

Not really. But since you can access a terminal using the method above it should be possible to track it down last but not least by reading the xorg log file, usually in the same place as all other logs under /var/log.

Good luck!

Can't access others terminals, need to boot from sd and mount eMMC to see the logs.

 

The problem was missing/corrupted libwayland_egl.so, so lightdm was aborting (missing something like  wl_window_destroy), copied the working library from sd and now OK again.
