Hello. Im new to the entire linux thing, so if I have overlooked something REALLY obvious i urge you not to flame me. I had recently made an ubuntu 12.10 image for my beagleBoard Xm rev C. It booted correctly. The regular terminal seemed to be fine. I was even able to install the GUI. The problem came when I attempted logging in through the GUI. I typed in the standard username and password ubuntu : temppwd. I clicked the login button and it greyed out, as if the login had worked, but then it just stayed at that screen, with the login button greyed out.
I used instructions from this blog. I skipped the SPI step as it didn't seem to recognize the command and the page said it was optional. Otherwise, I followed the instructions word for word.
I hope that this is just me being a newbie, but thanks in advance to whoever will help me.
