Login Screen Freezes on Boot. No terminal access.
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Solus 4.0 - Latest kernel.
Freezes on login screen. No mouse or keyboard response. Failure on each reboot. No terminal access.

The textbox for the password field goes white. I suspect it could be something to do with X.

I've seen issues similar to this. However I can't get terminal access.

How can I go about fixing the login splash so that I can gain access regularly?

Update: Solus is not frozen. The clock and battery still counts. I suspect my laptop isn't catching my keyboard or mouse.

I have just installed fusuma along with libinput and its packages. I suspect it may be due to this.

Can anyone offer any possible resolution for this problem?

stable or unstable repo? Can you get into TTY? What did you do before this boot?

Stable. Can’t get into tty with ctr alt f2. I installed libinput and fusuma before this.

okay, it seems you have to chroot into it https://getsol.us/articles/troubleshooting/boot-rescue/en/, after chrooting check if you really fully up to date and as well as for broken packages https://getsol.us/articles/troubleshooting/general-troubleshooting/en/, if this still doesn't solve it rollback the update https://getsol.us/articles/package-management/history-and-rollback/en/

I have these logs from checking eopkg.

Corrupted file: /usr/bin/chardetect

eopkg won't let me reinstall with this error:

I have replaced the corrupted files on my box with the ones on my live boot. This has fixed all corrupted files and packages without needing internet.

However the issue remains

Thank you for your help. I have resolved this issue by reinstating the DNS nameservers manually which prevented me from using Eopkg.

Turns out by uninstalling libinput, I uninstalled a lot of other packages along with it such as budgie-desktop.

By rolling back, this has solved the login freeze.

Thank you for your help again, and if anyone is having trouble with this please do add me to your thread.
