Whenever I boot, it show Plymouth then goes to a screen full of boot log, I -think- the only relevant part is
Starting Wait for Plymouth Boot Screen to Quit...es.ileged Tasks.s..p link was shut down... (If someone know where this file is logged, I can upload it, I copied this by hand. Everything else is over SSH) It had been going to to this then low graphics mode with Nvidia drivers, and it booted properly without them, but after I messed around with I only get this. I can get to the terminal with
ctrl+alt+1, so I tried to re-run lightdm, and I got this:
aidan@cinnabar:~$ sudo lightdm [sudo] password for aidan: /etc/modprobe.d is not a file /etc/modprobe.d is not a file /etc/modprobe.d is not a file /etc/modprobe.d is not a file update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for x86_64-linux-gnu_gfxcore_conf
These are the contents of modprobe.d:
aidan@cinnabar:~$ ls /etc/modprobe.d/ alsa-base.conf blacklist-framebuffer.conf blacklist-watchdog.conf iwlwifi.conf blacklist-ath_pci.conf blacklist-modem.conf dkms.conf mlx4.conf blacklist.conf blacklist-oss.conf fbdev-blacklist.conf vmwgfx-fbdev.conf blacklist-firewire.conf blacklist-rare-network.conf intel-microcode-blacklist.conf
I also tried to run
sudo service lightdm restart, and it gave me
Job for lightdm.service failed. See "systemctl status lightdm.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
