SOLVED - Unsuccessful update 10/28/2022

I updated my laptop SSD install of Nomad on Oct 28, 2022. I hadn’t updated in a couple months, so this was a BIG one. Now I can only log in to command line. No desktop. I haven’t yet started trouble shooting, so I’ll post more info when I do. I was hoping somebody else had run into this and had already found a solution.

HP Inspiron 7569
Nomad installed on SSD was functioning fine before update. Used the installed ap for the update, then rebooted. Boots to command line.

I got tired of messing with Nomad, so I did pkg install xfce and xfce4-goodies, then followed the instructions at the end regarding the usm and psm drivers, then rebooted. I was expecting to simply create a new desktop and just bypass Nomad’s desktop.

Voila! My Nomad desktop came back up, tracpad works, all is well. Must have been something in the xfce updates that broke my Nomad install. So I’ll label this thread SOLVED.
