If the /run link is removed and an actual directory put in its place then some users on that thread are stating that it works fine. Am I understanding that correctly? Anybody here tried that?
linuxmint-xfce-201104-dvd-64bit.iso -> no problem
linuxmint-201109-xfce-dvd-64bit.iso and later -> problem exist, /run is a link.
1) as root, delete the link /run
2) make a directory /run
/var/run will automagically change to a link.
