I have installed Linux Mint 7 "Gloria" (64BIT EDITION) and patched, compiled, and installed the latest kernel release (2.6.28-14-generic) in order to resolve a current IOMEM issue and fixed the GPU memory allocation for my NVIDIA 9500M GS. The current problem I'm having is that my system will not completely restart when I select the restart option from either the Mint Menu or the GDM screen. The system will go through the shutdown messages (usplash) and then immediately restartx with the bootup messages (usplash) without ever cycling power (e.g. BIOS or POST messages). My guess is that this is an ACPI issue and I would appreciate if anyone had any suggestions for me to try out; please let me know.
