I tried re installing an it is doing the same thing. On single install I did not have this problem. Frank
I don't understand what a single install means here ?,
--which one Debian version ? or Mint version ?
Anyway a way to test the login.
It might be helpful to see the contents of your /boot/grub/menu.1st file
- alt F1
- sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
- login with your user name (Frank ?)
--does that work
- sudo /etc.init.d/gdm start
--does that work, do you get the desktop
--it may also be important to know which version of grub is being used on the debian install and on the Mint install
In terminal, check
--for Linux Mint 7 -gloria 32 bit version
grub --version http://reddevil62-techhead.blogspot.com ... -boot.html
grub (GNU GRUB 0.97)
apt search grub
p grub - GRand Unified Bootloader
i grub-common - GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (commo
apt show grub-common
Automatically installed: no
This may also help with the grub setup needed by Debian..
