I’ve got a problem where I get the pretty graphical login screen and with a correct password entry I see the disk check messages clean on tty and then the login prompt reappears. This repeats endlessly.
I’m using a MacBook Pro Mid 2009, 13" model.
This happened before and I reinstalled that time. I’ve seen someone else was having this issue and the recommendation was given to look at the logs using
journalctl -ae -full
As far as I can see some problem seems to have occurred with the gnome starting.

The OS was booting fine and just stopped working in between boots. Not sure how things could have changed.
