Kali Install 3.0

This time i have no idea what happened.  I went to login to my Kali box, and…nothing.  I haven’t installed any updates, new software, nothing.  Just boom.  This is a great time to remind everyone how important backups are.

I decided to spend some time trying to research what happened to my box, and found some services wouldn’t start.  Network time protocol tried several times and failed, and then on a reboot they started brought me into the login page, typed username and password and then it would hang loading the GUI interface.  I loaded to the command line interface on another reboot and logged in as root instead of my regular user and it seemed to work fine.

I’m saving this instance to play with later, maybe i can fix it, but starting kali install 3.0 as well just in case.
