Not able to install Linux Mint 11 and above.

Postby blubug on Sat Dec 22, 2012 1:41 am

Hi Folks,

I've been using Linux Mint 10 for around 2 years now. Recently decided to upgrade to the latest Linux Mint versions but for some reason I'm not able to do that. Every time I try to install from USB it dumps out a few logs and finally says that panic occurred.

I'm using Dell studio XPS 13 laptop. I believe it could be because of the graphics card but need your advice.

Below is the lshw output:

Have you tried booting with 'nomodeset'?

sorry, detail added

During the 10 second count down during boot press a key. Then press the Tab key to edit the boot parameters, and on the line of text that appeared near the bottom append the word "nomodeset" (without the quotes). Then continue the boot and see if that will allow you to boot successfully.


Find the line ending with "quiet splash". Add your boot option before these key words - i.e. so the line looks like ..."nomodeset quiet splash"

Hi,

Thank you for the response. I tried with the 'nomodeset' and it does not work. It only takes me up to the step where it says "Linux Mint 13" is loading but right after that I get back to the usual panic message.

Please advice. Thank you.

I'm actually booting for a pendrive. I've tried this on two different pendrives that I've and the result is the same. Unfortunately do not have a DVD with me right now.

Should I try this out with a DVD?

It's unlikely to make a difference as to the source
But in either case you should run the media check.

Which version are you actually trying with ATM

When I boot from USB, I don't get an option for media check.

What is ATM? How do I get the info for you?

I'm trying to install Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon. I'm currently using Mint 10. It works fine on my laptop. But anything starting from 11 I'm not able to install.
I'll try the steps mentioned and let you know soon. Thanks!

I tried repeating the steps again. I do not see the option to check the integrity of the DVD.
This is what I see --> http://uppix.net/b/3/2/2bcf1d757b602342 ... 56f387.jpg

OK
I must be wrong. I think my image was from a earlier version.

Assume you tried the Compatibility mode or even used TAB to edit the arguments further than adding nomdeset?

Just out of interest have you tried Ubuntu?

I'm currently running on Linux Mint 10. It works with no issues. I've tried with Mint 11 - 13 and none of them work.

I've tried with Ubuntu and I'm seeing the same issue. To rule out, I also tried installing Mint 13 (USB) on my desktop and it works fine! Its only on my laptop that this is happening.

I tried the compatibility mode and the X server seems to fail with the error "no screens found".
Here is the screenshot --> http://uppix.net/1/f/4/0e84464e21dccc78 ... dfcd32.jpg

Unfortunately I'm quite new to Linux and do not know anything apart from nomodeset which you mentioned.

So you could install from there?
You just need the nvidia driver post install
You may have to boot the install the same way as the CD
Then run

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

Hi,

I finally found some time to work on this. I tried installing with nomodeset and through compatible mode but no luck, still hitting the same problem.

Also after installing mint 13 i tried to boot with nomodeset and its still crashing.

Thank you.
