Problem booting graphical mint LXDE 12

Postby evil gnome on Sun Apr 22, 2012 5:49 pm

Hello

Downloaded the iso from the torrent (and checked it from the GRUB, it has no defects).

Okay, I am having this strange problem with LXDE distros. Lubuntu, mint LXDE. these I can't boot into the graphical live CD. only the command-line loads.

EVEN when trying to install on virtualbox, the same problem happens (it is one of these magical problems).

This is what I get after booting Mint (both normal boot, and compatibility mode):

And this is what I get after I enter "startx" at the command line:

When the inital boot screen comes up, hit 'Tab' to bring up options. Add 'nomodeset' (without quotes), then 'Enter' or F10. On the Ubuntu site, somebody posted a list of all the kernel parameters. Helped a lot. It explains what 'nomodeset' does.

did what you said
No result again

Looks like I'm doomed. maybe mint 13 will work?

I don't know what is causing the problem. the only LXDE distro that runs fine is peppermint two.

Hi There
Perhaps for this graphical booting of LXDE version [on some hardware] some extra cheatcodes put in on the kernel line as suggested above for <nomodeset> - you might try also <nodrm> and <no3d> and perhaps a combination of all 3. These allow proper gui botting from live dvd in recent Knoppix versions on my old compaq presario. If not, try google search of "Knoppix and cheatcodes" for a much longer list to try out.
Best wishes, John.

Hi,
I had a similar problem myself with Mint 12 on an old laptop. The solution I found was to edit the boot command line.
When the boot menu appears:-
press 'e' to edit the boot command.
replace "quiet splash" with acpi=off nomodeset
press F10
It works for me, hope it does for you.

Matt.

I was having the very same problem described on an old Sony VAIO TR1A Notebook.

"Perhaps for this graphical booting of LXDE version [on some hardware] some extra cheatcodes put in on the kernel line as suggested above for <nomodeset> - you might try also <nodrm> and <no3d> and perhaps a combination of all 3."

recommmended below did the trick. (I did all 3, nomodeset, nodrm and no3d.) I also use GPart to wipe out my drive partitions and did a fresh install using the 3 cheatcodes.

So far so good! Thanks for the help folks! :)
