    Stuck before getting the login screen

    When starting Hirsute, without "quiet splash", the booting process goes well until ending to a black empty screen; the mouse and keyboard don't work at all.
    Starting the recovery mode, startx ends with an "oops, we got a problem" message.

    Looks like a wayland/xwayland problem, and the x11 fallback does not work either. Is there a key word to start wayland manually ?

    Problem is pointed to glib 2.67.4 (proposed) https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...0/+bug/1916701

    No problem with the previous 2.66.4 version
    wait & see

    There is way to use multi-user.target and then do
    Code:
    startx
    Add
    Code:
    systemd.unit=multi-user.target
    in Grub_command_line to do it for that boot. For permanent use just edit /etc/default/grub and do
    Code:
    update-grub
    afterwards...
    You could, also, alternatively, use
    Code:
    systemctl set-default multi-user.target
    in boot-recovery mode but that is, also, permanent, until next change...

    There seems to be some trouble with Wayland and Gnome, Settings are not working also and Log-Out leads to hang.
    Luckily I have my daily i3 in X11 and just have tried Gnome for the sake of this thread...
