I'm guessing that by "broken pipe" you get
Code: [Select]
Could not write bytes: broken pipes. If that's the case, then the disks are mounted as read-only
in recovery.
You should use root and type
Code: [Select]
mount -o remount,rw,errors=remount-ro /.
That should enable writing to the drive. Next,  run
Code: [Select]
dkpkg-reconfigure lightdm.
Good luck  8) Ina
