I’ve been seeing some strange behavior when using the full images of Stretch and now Buster.
I’ve tested with a clean install, changed password, enabled “Wait for Network” and updated on a 3B and a 3B+
If I move the mouse when the splash screen is displayed at boot, it reverts back to the scrolling console text and then gets caught in some kind of loop, I cant read the text because it is cycling too fast, the only option is to kill the power and have another go.
If I let the system boot and have not touched the mouse or keyboard until it is up, very often the first touch of the mouse will crash me back to a shell log-in prompt, I then have to enter my log-in details an use startx to get the desktop up. I can get around this by moving the mouse as soon as the splash screen disappears…
Any ideas ?
