Black screen after installing Gnome
I installed Debian Jessie with LXDE as my default desktop environment, no problems, except I can't play most games. So installed the Meta Package of the Gnome Desktop environment. Everything appeared to be ok, but when I went to reboot, all I get is a black screen.
I went to the Grub and typed in "nomodeset" to get me back to a desktop.
I uninstalled Gnome (not full removal), but still have the same problem.
When I restarted in safety mode, Gnome was still a desktop option that I could load, which I did. I'm confused. Do I need to do a complete removal?
I tried installing the nvidia graphic card driver as per the Debian manual, and that left me with only a root terminal and no GUI.
I've got about 2Gigs of ram and a 2.4 GHz Pentium 3 processor with an ASUS motherboard. (yes, it's a 12 year old computer, but not used for the past few years)
Any help would be great.
Thanks in advance,
