Just trying LMDE. It installed fine. I logged in and in the lower right corner a shield said updates were available. But, unfortunately it said that there were broken packages I needed to deal with and it closed.
So, instead i ran apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade... or something like that.
During the update I was asked questions like installing grub back to the disk and changing things like UID and labels instead of names for hard disks. And it said, at some points, that there were updates software and I had a choice to update to the current maintainers version or use what I already had. For those I said "Y" to update to the current versions available. Then it finished. I rebooted.
Now I can't login. It's not accepting my password. I also did "alt+FN" to try to login at the terminal. No luck. Is this normal? Thank you.
