(Casual Ubuntu user for a couple years; switched to mint because of Unity)
My LMDE 64-bit recently hangs on startup. It gets through all the starting services, shows the nvidia logo, and then gets indefinitely stuck on the "thinking cursor." This happens in recovery mode as well. The last thing I was doing was running a calculator program in WINE -- which crashed. I also just installed ia32-libs-gtk lib32nss-mdns ia32-libs lib32ncurses5 nvidia-glx-ia32 to get Google Earth working.
Any advice on how I can figure out what the problem is and fix it?
Thank you very much!
