This is strange. I have two SL virts I run in VMware Workstation Pro. One of them is very well-behaved. The other one ran just fine for 4 days, but now when I power it up all I get is a black screen where I used to get a desktop.

I can ssh to the system, and it is running, but I can't find directions for restoring the desktop.

Can someone direct me to instructions for this? How can I find out what is hung and kill it? I've just loaded these virts and haven't configured them to the baseline where I could take a snapshot, so if there are no good solutions I will just delete the virt and re-install it, but I'd like to know how to fix this if I ever decide to use SL as a development system.

Thank you,
