MD boots into KDE after update
« on: November 22, 2011, 06:21:36 pm »
I just did a dist-upgrade and had to reboot my MD (I'm currently on 1004) and it boots into KDE immediatly. I tried the activate Orbiter, but that didn't work. So I searched to forum and found this for the same issue under 8.10
sudo update-rc.d -f kdm remove
but that didn't work either. So I tried to rebuild the image, but after trying the update booted only into KDE again.

So right now I deleted the MD and created a new one, but so far will stay away from the update.

There is a ticket for this. The latest upgrade (1004 only) includes a KDM update which overwrites the /etc/X11/default-display-manager file.

The quick fix for those affected is:
Code: [Select]
echo "/bin/false" >/etc/X11/default-display-manager
They are working to divert this upgrade.
