I'm more worried about why your settings control panel was blank when you were still running. many of those items depend on a home folder, as does the login from the cli prompt. so that's why i wanted to check to see if

Code: Select all

ls -a /home
givesyou anything.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

I don't know why they call it a smartphone when you can,t type correctly on it. It should be called a Stupid Phone. As for la -a /home returns the following. . .. crippled. .ecryptfs

so do you have an encrypted home folder?

what is some more of that "crippled" message?

Yes, the home folder is encrypted. No other messages.
