Display Crashed : Kali Linux

I recently came across an issue with the Kali Linux, it was not booting into the GUI.

You might try the below steps to fix the issue, it worked for me.

My System :
  1. Host Machine : MacBook Air
  2. Host OS  : OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
  3. Guest OS : Kali GNU/Linux
  4. VM Software : Virtual Box 4.3
Observations :
  • Tried using startx, didn't work for me
  • Tried gdm3, didn't work
Fix :
  • apt-get update
  • apt-get upgrade -y
  • apt-get install -f gdm3
  • now type gdm3, you should get your display back
Let me know your views and comments, if you have any other fixes.
