@cwwgateway the kernel panicked, see OP's earlier comment on the kernel panics on Linux Mint 12.
@bmike1 from a question about the improvements of mint 13 over mint 12, this is now turning into a support request. Suggest you make a new topic for that in Installation & Boot. Please boot from the installation DVD and run the following command from the terminal:
- Code: Select all
inxi -Fxc 0
and include that output in your new topic in Installation & Boot for others to help you. It seems you have some hardware that is badly supported by its manufacturer on Linux, and with the asked information others may be able to help you resolve that.
