I've been trying Mint Linux 14 on a Dell Latitude E6230 using a live USB thumbdrive made using unetbootin. Everything was fine until I tried to use my laptop whilst on a plane the other day. As is a requirement I switched the wireless off using the hardware switch on the side of the case. And then Mint hung during boot. The keyboard was unresponsive and I had to restart using the power switch. The worst part is that afterwards the USB thumbdrive, with all my changes stored in casper-rw, was broken and wouldn't boot with wireless enabled or disabled. I've now confirmed this behaviour several times using two different thumbdrives. The point that the boot hung was 'Stopping Samba Auto-reload Integration'. Any clue about why this might be and how to prevent it? I don't mind that it won't boot so much as the thumbdrive has to be rebuilt afterwards and all changes in casper-rw are lost.
