I am trying to boot up Linux Mint 7 after a packages upgrade and it boots up but then it shows this and stalls.
localhost init: kdm main process ended, respawning
localhost init: kdm respawning too fast, stopped
And similar messages for GDM and then it just shows a black screen with a single blinking cursor on the middle left of the screen. I cannot do anything except press the CTR-ALT-DEL combination to re-boot, then it shows the usual shutting down messages and does the re-boot.
I am running the 2.6.28-19 kernel and I have upgraded the Ubuntu packages on my Linux Mint 7 system from Jaunty to Karmic. Please help as I do not want to re-install. I am running Knoppix 6.3 ATM and I should be able to chroot from that if necessary. I am booting from /sda1 that has Linux Mint 8 installed and grub 1.97.
