Hmm, how can I tell if its a bad download or burn?
I can't get any desktop with either safemode or normal, if I choose to remove the splash etc I just get a command prompt when the CD has finished.
Its annoying because in both normal and safe Mint does finish loading as it carries on when the graphics are gone and I get some audio.
Bit disappointed, I didnt expect this to be so hard. Ubuntu worked fine lol. I checked out the troubleshooting, thats what my first post was based on.
I don't know if its just me but:
This will get rid of the Mint/Ubuntu splash screen and stop half way through booting with a command prompt (ignore any error messages for now). This is caused by a bug that discards the setting "Safe graphics mode" (which is vesa) if the card is recognized - in the case of nvidia the driver vesa is replaced with "nv" when X starts.
I am lost here? It does just that but what am I supposed to do then?
As I said I was confused about the This helps "X problems" in installed systems as well" Can I edit those files on the LiveCD boot?
