                      I did the update that came as a package yesterday
                      to my 9.2.<br>
                      It seems pkg-static failed after the update, so
                      now I have a 10 world, which boots, but when X
                      starts I see the 9.2 background screen briefly
                      then the screen goes back to text mode and stays
                      black.<br>
                      Ctrl-Alt-F1 works, but the screen never recovers
                      (stays black). I can blindly login as root and
                      issue a reboot, so the system hasn't crashed, but
                      I think all packages are still from 9.<br>
                      What can be done (other than reinstalling 10 from
                      scratch)? I can get into single user mode, but
                      pkg-static fails.<br>
                      <br>
                      Any ideas?<br>
                      <br>
                      Thanks.<br>

                    <div dir="ltr">Surely others may give better or more
                      complete advice, so I defer to those who actually
                      have PC-BSD 10.0 installed.  <br>
                      <br>
                      However, if I were in your boat, I would attempt
                      to get to single user mode, mount the needed
                      drives/pools then comment-out the desktop manager
                      (either gdm or pcdm) line of /etc/rc.conf which
                      would stop the automatic startup of X.  From
                      there, I would be able to tinker with the system
                      to solve the problem.  My first thought about
                      solving the issue would be to look at the 'convert
                      FreeBSD to PC-BSD' page on the wiki, since it
                      would have the relevant information for hopefully
                      getting your X working again.  If its some other
                      cause, at least from a not-automatic-X situation,
                      things can be attempted more easily.

      I would log in as root, then re-run the pkg command to force
      re-install of all your packages:<br>

      pkg-static -fy upgrade<br>

    Additionally, it might be a good idea to run:<br>
    -------------<br>
    pkg install pcbsd-base<br>
    -------------<br>
    Just to make sure that you have everything setup for a basic
    graphical system... :-)<br>
