untity login loop

Hi guys,

I am stuck in the ubuntu login loop. It flashes the nvidia beta logo momentarily and then goes back to the login screen again.

The only mistake I might have done is to install the “CUDA Toolkit for L4T” before the installer that came with the board. Any suggestions on how to solve this issue?


I almost had the same problem. Altough i didn’t find a direct solution, there is a dirty workaround.

HellMood you are correct. I guess for some reason user account ‘ubuntu’ was not able to create some boot folders. When I get time will try looking at it more deeply.

Login using Ctrl+Alt+F1 or via SSH as ubuntu/ubuntu and delete ~/.Xauthority. This worked for me.

This can happen due to unclean X server shutdown.
