After logging in to my Debian machine, I just get a black screen. When going to tty1 I see "xset unable to open display". When I next reboot, I get into initramfs because of some bad blocks om /dev/sde1. I fix them (fsck /dev/sde1 -y). After doing this, I can get back to the login screen, and repeat.
Why would this happen? When I install Ubuntu on the same drive I have no such issues. Neither do I have issues with Windows or openSUSE. I am quite confused as to why this happens on debian.
