A couple weeks ago, I went to my computer (which I’d left open overnight, as I often do) and input my password. Instead of getting back into my DE, I was faced with a black screen and a functional cursor.
From that black screen, I can use Ctrl+Alt+F2 to get into a terminal login screen and return to my DE using startx, but if I do that my Lock Screen function doesn’t work anymore.
I thought it may have been the Suspend function, but just yesterday I used Lock Screen and then deactivated the screensaver two seconds later, input my password, and got the black screen anyway.
Still on 6.1.69-1, should I jump to 6.6.8-2 and see if that helps before I try fixing this? Or is it more prudent to figure out what may be wrong before switching kernels?
