Was fooling around with texlive install last night.  Got that working.  Put laptop into suspend, went to bed, got up, and now computer won't boot into gui.  I get xterm, I believe.  I don't have a default boot into tui and can't seem to reach vasm.  Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.  I get a lot of firewall errors when shutting down.  

I have forgotten what to do here.

i would create a new user and see if you can log into that account.
you can run vuseradd from the root account.

Thanks uelsk8s,

I tried that and in a round-about-way, found the solution.  I had deleted gdm last night when fooling around with texlive as something (can't remember) kept saying it would not load (unmet dependencies).  Wish I could remember.  Anyway, then gdm wouldn't load from gslapt.  But, slapt-get -i ignore-dep gdm did work.

Thank you very much.
