Stuck login
Closed, ResolvedPublic


After I updated Solus (budgie) today, I have a very long login time (after the user select screen).
It takes about 2 mins to login, where before the update it took 1 sec.

I tried to make a new test user (with useradd command), but that wont login at all, it just goes back to the welcome screen, after a brief blackout.

Seems to be working now, I downloaded 1 update (unzip update?).

Logged in without any delay.

No, the problem is still there.

But... if I move the mouse after typing in my password, it successfully logs in.

Same issue with me. I found that if I press 'esc' key while 'little wheel' is spinning, the login field returns. I re-enter password again, press 'esc' again, 3rd time entering password then successful login immediately.

Happens with Gnome also.

Logging in gets stuck until moving the mouse.

So this morning (5 ins prior to this post) I was able to log in immediately without delay. Performed a full shut down and powered on, able to login in successfully immediately once again.

One of the updates today fixed the issue for me. Perhaps the Nvidia driver update?

Leaving open until the actual Author of this task says the problem is resolved. Thanks!

There has been released an update/downgrade to both the Nvidia driver and the kernel.

I don't think it's a problem with the Nvidia driver, since I tried to uninstall the driver and use the open source one and still had the same problem.

But the linux kernel has been downgraded and it now seem to work, I do not have any delay logging into Solus (testet it 4 times, rebooting after each login).

Right now I can select between 4.15.18-67 (works) and 4.16.7.-66 (can't boot, maybe Nvidia driver problem?)

I can also confirm that 4.15-18-67 boots fine, 4.16.7-66 problem persists.

I haven't had any issues on either kernel version.

Currently using Budgie w/ NVIDIA 396.24 drivers on my EVGA GTX 960.

I have intentionally deferred the downgrade to 4.15.18-67 because the newer kernel, 4.16.7-66, performs without any issue for me.

Couldn't boot properly from 4.15.18.
The computer booted but stuck showing a screen full of errors. when i pressed enter it took me to tty screen.
But when I changed it to 4.15.17 it worked.
Please solve this issue.

@maverick1 Can you please provide system specs? Processor, Graphics card etc.?
