I'm trying to install LMDE (linuxmint-201303-cinnamon-dvd-64bit-rc.iso) on a Dell Precision T3500. I've written the ISO to two different USB sticks, and each time I boot from the stick, I get a message stating "Process: 346 GLib-Warning getpwuid_r() failed due to unknown userid (0)"
I've checked the MD5 against the ISO, and written the ISO to two different 4GB USB sticks. I've tried both the LiveCD and install modes. The boot hangs at that error every time. The system has 12GB of ram, and has installed/run CentOS6 without any problems. Plus I've used both of these USB sticks to install other Linux ISO to other systems just fine..
Thanks for the reply.. In one case, I waited for over 10 min at that hang and the boot never continued. Not sure what "compatibilty mode" is.. Just for drill I tried a DebianSqueeze install, and all went well, which, I guess I'd expect, since you say this is a Plymouth error, and I don't think Debian uses Plymouth..
Thanks for the info, apparently that RC is the only LMDE version available.. Not interested in the Ubuntu-based version. I love Mint, but need a working install on this new machine, so I guess I'm gonna stick to the DebianSqueeze install I put on it to test....
I tried it with the released version of 201303 Cinnamon and did three tests: 64-bit and 32-bit versions on HP Laptop 6930p 64-bit version on my desktop HP xw6200 All three failed. Attached is a screen shot with some traces from the desktop.

i'm experiencing the exact same problem and error message. Tried to install the 64Bit Cinnamon and the 64bit Mat edition on my Acer Aspire 3750G to no avail. Tried both installations from different usb-sticks, but the installation stops completely after the error message, even ctrl-alt-del doesn't work so i have to switch the laptop off with the power button.
Tried the installation also with "acpi=off" without any success and with "nomodeset", again no success.
I was able to install the normal Linux Mint Cinnamon 64Bit two weeks ago without a problem.
