i updated my machine from a plain Installation of xubuntu 18.10 (because i had an Installation medium laying around for that) to the latest Version (which is 19.04)
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade && sudo do-release-upgrade and now it Fails booting halfway through.
following is the sympthomatics:
- boots till the console based Login (on tty1)
- then blanks the screen
- leaves me with a coursor blinking in inregular intervals
ctrl-alt-f1for some amount of time Shows the console based Login screen again for a fracture of a second and then blanks the screen again and the cycle repeats again.
strange Thing though is: the num lock is on as usual if i turn it off it turns itself back on with the next cycle which leaves me thinking that something is gone horribly wrong and its stuck in a loop trying again and again until it succedes which actually never happens.
i took a Brief look at a couple of proposed "similar Questions" but they dont quite represent the Problem and do not present working Solutions as i am not even able to Login at a console Level.
i had the same effect a day ago after i upgraded from the same 18.04 Installation but had a couple of packages i dont Need removed beforehand. therefor i tried reinstalling and leaving everything plain and then upgrading which leads to the same old Problem as discribed above.
next Thing i am going to try is whether ssh-ing into the machine is possible. but i guess there is no ssh Server installed per Default.
the repair/recovery Options in the grub menue dont help me at all. although i can use them to get to a root Shell and surprising enough i can do a
startx then and it works (if only in 800*600 Resolution though)
