pc hangs before X

Postby dougtheslug on Sat May 24, 2008 3:32 pm

I've been having problems with the last two releases my computer hangs 90 % of the time before it starts X with this error ( error 5099 cant parse config ) I found a solution in the ubuntu forums with the last release by adding this to the Kernel line in grub ( quiet splash showopts noapc_irq_balance ) but it does not seem to work this time around
I have a generic dual core 386 with 4 gig of ram
any help I will appreciate it

Too little information. I'll give you a standard answer
Thank you for your interest in Mint
To help you solve your problem we need to know exactly what Mint you use.
By that I mean version (like Celena or Daryna or numerical if you prefer) and edition (main = Gnome, KDE or some of the Community Editions like xfce or fluxbox or the mini edition)
We also need information about your hardware. You can obtain that by running
in a terminal
If it is something connected to USB you run
and similarly for other 'buses' like pcmcia....
To copy from a terminal mark (with the mouse) and right click
Then paste into a code box (it does not use as much space then)
Thank you
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
