    Upgrading to Rolling? Turn your screen lock off first!

    This happened to me on 2 machines. If you start the upgrade and your screen locks you won't be able to get back in. Yours might work, 2 of mine didn't.

    What Did you do to resolve?

    I followed steps to the T and everything appeared to go well, replacing to the rolling repository, and then I followed the Nvidia steps and it crashed.

    It rebooted and then said Oh No something went wrong with a grey screen. I rebooted after trying to logout out and it wouldnt let me.
    just keep going back to the grey screen saying something went wrong, to logout but loops.

    Hi AWV,

    So were any of your steps changed during the installation process? I see there are allot of unstable packages ranging from urgency medium.

    I did change a few of my steps during the process.

    instead of standalone, i selected inetd.

    obviously I selected "no" for non root users to access wireshark.

    instead of the auto-restart by selecting yes, I selected "no" so I can see what errors or changes appeared.

    at this point the icon toolbar dissapeared during the setting up process which I believe is normal.

    I then rebooted my system before going on to the next process of the next three steps:

    sed 's/quiet/quiet nouveau.modeset=0/g' -i /etc/default/grub
    update-grub
    reboot

    This is where I feel in my two systems broke, there was a point of no return they both did the exact same thing stating "Oh No something went wrong" then has a icon "Logout" which does not allow you to logout.

    I am at this point and halting because it appears everything is working.

    "Would" anyone suggest doing an "apt-get autoclean" at this point then proceeding?

    Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Sorry for late reply. I took defaults in the install.
