[help] Computer won't log in

I updated just a few hours ago, so I’m presumably on the latest update. Afterward, I restarted the computer and now I can’t log on. My login screen changed quite a bit, which I think might be related to the update, but is functionally the same, other than the simple fact that it doesn’t work. I can click on my account name and enter a password, but upon successful completion (I’m 100% certain the password is correct), the screen goes blank, at first the same color as the login screen, then entirely black, and then I’m back to the account selection page. No indication of “incorrect password” or any sort of error message, just the account selection screen. I’ve tried literally dozens of times. I only have the one account and I even tried switching back and forth between Gnome on Wayland and Gnome on Xorg on the settings dial in the bottom-right, and both give the same result.

have you installed any gnome extension?

If you open a TTY (e.g CTRL-ALT-F3) can you log in there?

If so try to add a new user and reboot. sudo useradd <username>; sudo passwd <username>; sudo reboot - can you log into Gnome with that new user?

Yes, dash-to-panel, which was working fine before the update. The update also removed a bunch of previously pre-installed gnome extensions IIRC (I haven’t updated in a month or so, which is bad practice, I know).

Yes, I can log in via terminal. That’s just what I was looking for!
Added a new user, rebooted, and the new user cannot login to gnome either.

Doing some more digging, and as per @doct0rHu 's comment, I believe it does have something to do with gnome. Just tried, and I can log in with Weston (whatever that is). I’m not familiar with how it works, but I can launch a terminal. So progress, I guess.

Since I now have access to root shell, I can do some remote debugging or even just a reset of some sort. What do you guys recommend?

try ssh from another machine if you can and run

journalctl -f

attempt local gui login and paste the output from your ssh shell to here.

Can’t I just use the ctrl-alt-f3 terminal, or is there a specific reason to ssh?

so that you can follow the journal (from the shell) and attempt the login at the same time.

I asked about gnome extension because sometimes an incompatible extension would crash gnome. If you haven’t installed any extensions by yourself, it should be okay.

Log from one login attempt to Gnome on Wayland in full. Replaced the computer’s hostname with ‘hostname’ and my admin username with ‘extremepayne’ but otherwise the log remains unchanged.

Do you have a custom cursor theme installed?

May 26 11:19:40 hostname gnome-shell[983]: Could not find cursor. Perhaps set XCURSOR_PATH

I had one of the default ones before the update that removed all theme options from the default packages. I assumed the update would reset my cursor to be one of the new defaults, but I guess not. How might I set my theme to the new default or install the correct cursor theme?

what is the output of

sudo swupd info

and

sudo swupd diagnose --picky

I’m on version 33180 with the default version and content urls (https://cdn.download.clearlinux.org/update).
The diagnosis is taking a while and I want to eat lunch, so I’ll get back with that in a little while.

You might have a bug. You might’ve been using some stuff that now depends on desktop-assets-extras.

running

sudo swupd bundle-add desktops-assets-extras 

might solve it but if that’s the case swupd should’ve caught it.

You can file a bug report here and post the above journal output which contains a core dump in the issue.

desktop-assets-extras was my first thought as well, but it’s installed (per sudo swupd bundle-list | grep desktop-assets-extras). It appears the diagnose command is hanging, so I’ll restart it and hopefully get back to you with those results soon.

I’ll go file an issue.
