View Full Version : [gnome] Gnome login won't complete - Ubuntu on SD card

June 27th, 2008, 08:43 PM
Hey all,

I just installed Ubuntu onto a 4GB SD card via the internal reader in my laptop. I used the LiveCD to install it as I would a normal HD, except I didn't install a boot record (I use Grub on my HD load it). Anyway, the install went fine and it boots w/o issue. However, it won't finish logging in after entering my password. The login screen goes away and then it just sits. I let it go for about 10min, but nothing happened. I went to tty1 to make sure I could login, and was able to with no problem. I didn't try updating via the tty yet because I don't have a wired connection available att. Any ideas will be helpful! Thanks!!
