Descrizione

Have downloaded and installed Trisquel 9 mini and MATE. Rebooted after install all ok.

Problems occur after running and installing available updates.

Updates download and install all ok.

Rebooted.

During boot-up, Trisquel Plymouth screen shows ok. Text login prompt shows briefly.

Screen in graphics mode as if X is trying to load. Screen drops out to text mode. X tries loading again and stops.

If the power button is pressed, the shutdown Plymouth screen is shown and the machine turns off.

X seems to be crashing.

Both MATE and Mini are having the same problem.

I don't know what key combinations to stop booting and exit a command prompt

I tried the dist-upgrade after a fresh install. Upgrade 9 installed ok but after a reboot but the same video issues.

It seems it maybe the X-server crashing or "Connection refused" as the same thing happened on a non-libreboot laptop

Just got a T60 and that works fine on mini9 until the latest updates are installed. Now wont boot.

Using Ctrl+alt+F2 i get to a prompt. Running startx creates a very generic xfce desktop
