13 Mate x64 in recovery mode

Postby dancingdog777 on Sun Mar 24, 2013 2:50 pm

Has anyone succesfully managed to start Mint 13 Mate x64 in recovery mode? With that black screen how on earth are you supposed to read the instructions?

I have twice had to reinstall 13 Mate because I can't get around this.

I'm hardly a novice and have used Mint since Mint 7!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
 

So, no solutions then?

No answers to my post here, viewtopic.php?f=90&t=129416&p=702001#p702001


I guess no one else has managed it either? :(

There are a lot of posts every day, so some will be missed or skipped and may not get an answer. You can bump your topic after 48 hours since a last replay, to get it renewed attention. This is detailed in the "Before you post please read this" link, at the top of the page in the "Forum rules" box. Perhaps a helpful read.

Generally when you don't get an answer, before you bump, you should consider if there is perhaps something you can add or rephrase to make more clear what your problem or question is. You can edit your post for that.

Reading your initial post here (had missed it earlier) I'm not sure what your problem or question is. Recovery mode works fine for me, so provide more detail. Is the problem that you don't understand how to use it? Is the problem that the screen stays black? Is the problem that the letters are tiny? Be specific...

Thank you for your answer.

In Recovery Mode the screen remains black with no writing on it. I clicked Recovery Mode and even left it for 30 minutes, still with no writing appearing. As start up in normal mode sometimes 'sticks' I thought I'd try using Recovery. I have already run sudo touch /forcefsck.

This is the first edition of Mint I have used that has a black display at boot, all previous versions going back to Mint 7 had a graphic.

I normally use 10 Julia on my main machine, which although unsupported now, is as good as gold.

So is this question too stupid? Must be since there's been no answer since Mar 26, 2013 (nearly 5 months) !
