Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

If you want to keep at it... try a reinstall and when you first boot into the new install, run the sudo systemctl mask systemd-backlight@leds\:dell\:\:kbd_backlight.service command (since apparently you can't boot into your current install to run it)... I have just done that and I'm happy to say th...

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Still freeze. Although I get ACPI Error (CAPB) Namespace lookup failure and Method parse/execution failed etc. Does that holds any clue? It froze on the "upstart" option? Or did that part work, and the normal boot still freezes? You can try editing your grub line when you boot: (hold shift down if ...

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Have just installed 4.4 and then booted to this kernal.....it still hangs... :? Bummer. Let's try the backlight thing next.... On boot, hold shift key if necessary to show GRUB menu. Choose advanced options... Then choose (upstart) -- either kernel version. Screenshot_03102010_134436.png Does this ...

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

I have tried sudo command but it doesn't work. Please elaborate, how you did this. The command sudo systemctl mask systemd-backlight@leds\:dell\:\:kbd_backlight.service would have to be issued in your running system, that is, after you install and reboot the first time. There is a way to load an in...

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Regarding the backlight - I think I have found this on Google search, although it's for Ubuntu, maybe it might work also for Linux mint?

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Anyone? I have played with Linux Lite and while it is nice with similar applications, I actually prefer the Linux Mint but it would be the last resort.

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

I would hit the Dell forums with this problem 'cause its a weird one for sure! You did check the legitimacy of the ISO you downloaded? ( clutching at straws here ). Oh, and... Linux doesn't install additional software without your explicit permission. Just to clear that up. Yes, it installed fine o...

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Ah I see, since it doesn't boot up, I don't think thats possible to access to the Update Manager unless I do re-installation?

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Hmm it is showing 4.10.0.38 but how do I change it?

I have already tried the Driver Manager upon the installation and there was only update for Intel Atom processor. It didn't help.

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Thanks, not at all. The strange thing is that it booted up fine on Live CD and fine again after the successful installation.

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Just tried no freeze solution with each of three options presented and none of them has booted up.

However, it stops everytime at:

Code: Select all

Started LSB: daemon to balance interrupts for SMP systems.

Re: Mint 18.3 XFCE hangs on boot

Didn't do anything at all and also didn't do the updates although I had connected it to Wifi during the installation so it could have downloaded updates itself? Maybe I will try the installation but without connecting to the internet so it will not get any updates and see if it can boot up again? (a...
