    Hello Rafal,
    It sounds like you are booting up in run level 2 or 3. At the command prompt type the user name and press enter. Then the system will ask for the password, press enter.
    If the system is not booting into run level 2 or 3 please explain in better detail what you are trying to accomplish.
    Linux is the FORCE
