Summary0014085: Duplicate user ID in /etc/passwd causes blank screen after boot
DescriptionWhen an user ID appears twice in the /etc/passwd file, the boot of graphical.target with a gnome surface leads to a blank screen, the screen Ctrl-Alt-F2 shows

"A start job is running for Wait for Plymouth Boot Screen to quit"

The command systemctl list-dependencies graphical.target shows a red bullets for

A remote login is possible.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a second user id entry for a normal user e.g. using an editor.
Additional InformationWhen changing the default to multiuser.target instead, the boot completes and a login on the console permits a subsequent start of the graphical surface using startx. After changing the default back to graphical.target and removing the duplicate entry from the /etc/passwd file the login screen appears again.
