That seems odd, to keep that running after the initial boot step!

So your initial, frozen session is at console #2? What happens if you switch back to it? I didn't mention that in my previous mail, but that's what the "salvation" process is: switch to another virtual console and then back again.

Is your 2nd plasma session fully operational as you'd expect?

>/var/log/syslog no longer exists.

That's odd too, but there must be a successor.

Maybe looking at the timestamps of the *rc and *.ini files in ~/.config refreshes your memory of those last changes you made!
