Blank Screen booting into KDE

Post by Michael Halsey » 2015/01/03 20:57:43

Hi All,

Wondering if anyone else has experienced this;
I have CentOS 7 and KDE Plasma running on a Gigabyte Q2006 Netbook.

When booting up, I get the graphical prompt to enter the encrypted LVM password but blank screen once KDE starts up. Oddly though, if I put the device into hibernate by closing the lid and re-opening it again, I get the KDE login screen.

I can't find anything a-miss in dmesg or /var/log/messages.
I have tried using xrandr to force the resolution on pre-KDE startup and on startup and also added the command to rc.local. Makes no difference.

If anyone has any ideas as to what could be causing this, I'm all ears.
