I've just installed LMDE on my laptop (details in my signature). Everything was peachy when i installed it and infact it was the only distro that would accept my VIA Unichrome VN800 onboard graphics card. (Ubuntu just wouldn't play) Having read many gripes on Google i noticed that many people suffered the same thing. Anyway, my video driver was updated in the last update and now it seems that the new kernel doesnt play well.
This would explain why i have to keep moving the mouse to prompt the laptop to shift its backside and load up. Whenever i enter a command into terminal, that also freezes until i move the mouse. How do i revert back to the old video driver?
i've noticed that boot up takes an age now after i did my first update. I get a black screen initially and sometimes i can do Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to trigger some kind of response, but other times i just have to power off and back on. Nothing happens really until i move the mouse.
when i do get a decent boot up i have to move the mouse constantly to get any kind of response.
I didnt have this problem until updating, infact it was lightning fast before hand. Can anyone help?
