Description

Hi all,

I have installed OI Hipster from the October 2015 iso, and have it patched up to the latest as of February 25.

My issue is that when I try to exit gdm to console mode by typing "# pfexec svcadm disable gdm", gdm will indeed shut down, but then I'm left with a black screen and a grey blinking cursor but no prompt (i.e. "$ _" or "# _"), let alone any console-based login. I tried leaving my machine for an extended period of time to see if this would eventually resolve itself, but no luck. For now my only way out of this is to do a hard reboot or shutdown, and this effectively renders the system GUI/gdm-only.

Cheers,
James
