I currently have a Rasberry Pi B, one of the very early ones, I installed a fresh version of Raspbian today and everything was fine. I let the system update after the first boot and let it restart. Everything was normal. I then added Grafana, speedtest.net, and InfluxDB. I then created some python files, tried to open Chromium but it wouldn't open.
I then tried to restart the system and it has never booted to the desktop since. It gets through the initial boot from what I can tell, it shows me the logo and all the programs its loading. Then it just sits at a black screen with a blinking cursor. I can press ctrl+alt+f1 and I can see a command line appear but then it's removed a second later.
Any ideas about what has gone wrong with it? Is it because I'm trying to use and old Pi with new software?
I'm really new to linux so feel free to explain lots to me :) Any help would be appreciated Cameron
