Was using sddm as the display manager. Can get around it by by booting in terminal mode. Starting the graphical mode with xinit -- :0 and lxsession in the resulting xterm window. Get the following messages in the window--The system is sthen somewhat usable but occasionally locks up. Is there a command to start a desktop environment before the session?I always boot to multiuser / runlevel 3 and start X from there. For LXDE I use the following to put the correct command in ~/.Xclients echo 'exec startlxde' >> $XCLIENTS If you are always going to start LXDE, you should only have to do that once. Once that is in place, it is only necessary to run startx -- vt10 to put the desktop on F10, so that messages will appear on F1. You can just run startx if you want the desktop on F1. I am using openbox as the desktop manager when I start LXDE (set in the LXDE configuration file, .config/lxsession/LXDE/desktop.conf). I haven't tried sddm, it might just work if it is your default if you use the above procedure.
What shell are
you using? In Bash--
~]$ echo 'exec startlxde' >> $XCLIENTS
bash: $XCLIENTS: ambiguous redirect
~]$ XCLIENTS="exec startlxde"
~]$ echo $XCLIENTS
~]$ cat .config/lxsession/LXDE/desktop.conf
