can't log into live cd??

Postby kaddy on Tue Jun 17, 2008 11:24 am

Hi guys.
I've been using mint since Darnya on 2 pc's with no problems for a while now, I recently downloaded the new Elyssa
gnome version, it installed and works fine on my main computer. But i just tried to install it on my other pc which has darnya on it, and i can't get into
the desktop on the live cd for some reason. It keeps attempting to login in, then it gets into the desktop, and keeps logging out again and repeating the process.
What the heck can be causing this? and how could i possibly fix it? any ideas?

its not the burn, cause like i said its fine on my main computer, and darnya works fine on that pc, but i can't get into the desktop for longer than 2 seconds on elyssa.
arrghhhhh
helpppp :(

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try booting in compatibility mode. Hit any key except enter before the timer counts down to reveal the boot options.
