Thanks a lot, Dan.

After install xinit I use startx, IceWM loaded but without mouse or
keyboard control (neither responded). I have ssh access from another
machine, so I 'killall -s SIGINT icewm' and get back to CLI. Then
tried again, with same result.

Then tried to reboot and get this:

$ systemctl reboot
Failed to set wall message, ignoring: The name
org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1 was not provided by any .service files
Failed to reboot system via logind: The name
org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1 was not provided by any .service files
Failed to start reboot.target: The name org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1 was
not provided by any .service files
See system logs and 'systemctl status reboot.target' for details.

$ systemctl status reboot.target
reboot.target - Reboot
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/reboot.target; disabled; vendor
preset: enabled)
Active: inactive (dead)

$ systemctl restart reboot.target
Failed to restart reboot.target: The name org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1
was not provided by any .service files
See system logs and 'systemctl status reboot.target' for details.

But 'sudo reboot' worked.

Is it the same problem or something else?

Right now I'm basically in the same situation as at the beginning. Any idea?

Thanks A LOT, again.
