I've got a Pi book. Since last time I logged in, a new thing appears which asks me to enter username and password. It's called default xsession. This was already weird because it didn't happen before. If I try to login as Pi, blackscreen appears with a square colour (little rainbow in the corner) and I am in the login screen again. If I login as root everything works.

  • What book? What have you done? The devil is in the details. – Jacobm001 Jun 16 '15 at 16:04

  • Is "the square color thingy" full screen (i.e., it's rebooting), or is it a littler rainbow one in the corner? – goldilocks Jun 16 '15 at 16:12
  • little rainbow in the corner – Selvie Jun 16 '15 at 17:09

Not enough reputation to comment, but the little rainbow in the corner is the pi telling you it doesn't have enough power. Check / change your power supply. Not sure if that will solve the problem, but it will at least avoid another one.

See here for information on the warnings.
