About 4 times out of 5, Linux Mint loads with a funky split screen. The background flickers rapidly about the split line. I can type my password, but then my account won't load (not that I would even try to operate with such a distracting glitch). All I can do is reboot and hope that the glitch goes away. After a few tries, it always does, but I don't understand why this happens. Why would it do something different each time that I try to boot? Why does it just magically go away without any interference on my end? I feel powerless when that happens.
Linux Mint 12 Lisa, 32-bit, GNOME 3
Linux Kernel 3.0.0-12
AMD Radeon 6670 (1 GB)
AMD Phenom II - X2
4 GB RAM
It appears also that there are leftover images on my card when I boot sometimes. I was in Ubuntu, then I rebooted the system and loaded Mint, and my background from my Ubuntu desktop showed up for a few seconds. Weird!
EDIT: I rebooted to take a photo of the split screen, and then I tried 8 more times to correctly boot into Mint, but it kept happening. A few times, the entire screen was grey. The last few times I saw the following lines of text pop up.
- Code: Select all
Mountall: Plymouth command failed
Mountall: disconnect from Plymouth
