Other modules / [Closed] Issue with GUI on Windows 10 Hyper-V
« on: March 12, 2021, 07:58:03 pm »
I am running Zentyal 6.0 commercial on a Hyper-V VM as a home server and only recently I am having issues with the GUI not loading after boot. The result is that the Ubuntu text interface is displayed, but the GUI seems to attempt to load every few seconds unsuccessfully. Even before I am able to login, this is what I am seeing.

1. Blank screen from power on to Ubuntu textual login screen (takes about 2.5 minutes)
2. Ubuntu textual login screen is displayed for less than 1 second
3. Blank screen with a blinking cursor is displayed for 7 seconds
4. Repeat steps #2 and #3 indefinitely

Only while in step #2 am I able to type anything, so really not at all. The only way out of this is to force Ubuntu to switch back from attempting load the GUI to the TUI by pressing CTRL+ALT+F1 and then I have a few seconds to type before it attempts to load the GUI again, cutting off my text entry until I press CTRL+ALT+F1 again. This few seconds of time is now my troubleshooting window...

I have tried removing "quiet" and changing "splash" to "nosplash" in GRUB and the Ubuntu textual login screen comes up much more quickly, but then Ubuntu finishes booting (showing me "[ OK ] Started Bind Domain Name Server" and other lines) inline with the login screen text. After boot is complete, the same Blank screen effect happens again (7 seconds off, less than 1 second on).

I am not sure where to go from here. The webGUI still works fine and Zentyal and Ubuntu don't seem to have any other problems, but when I need to fix a package that failed to install, I have to put up with a buggy TUI. Let me know if you have any ideas.

I purchased Zentyal Commercial 6.0 and I am interested in upgrading to 6.2, but I don't see any documentation that references upgrading the commercial version. It seems all of the documentation for upgrading is for the Development version and the only way to upgrade the Commercial version is with a support ticket, which has a cost. For a home user, that is not a desired method of upgrade and I would prefer to perform the upgrade myself if I have documentation available to me.
