Smile Error msg on boot - "init:sys-setup-keyboard main process (2594)"

Hello, we have recently purchased an Acer VN2620G-UC887L desktop client with Linpus Lite OS. I had been working with it and setup a new user then rebooted and received an error message and now cannot get past it.

The full message is this:

init:sys-setup-keyboard main process (2594) terminated with status 1.

I have never used Linux and we purchased this desktop thinking we would only be using it to RDP to our MS term server. We thought it came with a RDP already installed, but not the case. So, I am just struggling my way through this. I have read about RDesktop, but will address that in the Software forum if I can get past this boot issue.

TYIA for being gentle and using small words in crayon.

Can you restart the computer , it should have a Grub MENU or a menu entry potining to boot up Linpus Lite OS, press "e" to edit this line.

Then you should see a Kernel line with all the paramters. Go here for more instructions: Look at Step 1:

If you see something in that long kernel line like the below, delete the exact entry on the kernel line (aka console and 115200 as specified below), then press enter > then b (to boot the system)


Now see if your machine starts?

If this is to difficult to understand you might want to head to:
