Recent change has made Mint 18.1 unable to boot to cinnamon.

I end up and an unfamiliar login that only asks for password. After I enter the password I am told "Your session only lasted Less Than 10 seconds.

Good thought and I would not be surprised if the answer is yes. I will have to work on this when I get home. Thanks for your thoughts.

About the missing pubkey: I hope this commandline will add the missing public key again: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 6D975C4791E7EE5E HTH, Karl Karl, how do you know that the key listed coincides with the keyserver.ubunut.com?

Repository adding error, cannot find problem...

After a short amount of searches (originally thought the problem was with the XMBC repo) I know that this problem is being caused by something wrong with my repository list or related to it, but that is as far as I have gone. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated. yeep@Mint-MoFo ~ $ lsb_...

Re: New EFI boot manager available: rEFInd

YeeP, I'm afraid that I don't know (or remember) enough about your configuration to offer extremely specific suggestions, at least not without confidence. For instance, I don't know if you're using auto-detection vs. manual boot stanzas, or how your partitions are laid out, or whether you're dual-b...

Well, it is definitely using rEFInd. My problem now is I get this error when I try to use Kali from the rEFInd Menu. Here is what I see in the menu: Boot Microsoft EFI boot Boot boot\vmlinuz-3.11.0-14-generic <--Mint 16, I do not think this is the latest kernel in use Boot boot\vnlinuz.3.12-kali1.am...

Re: New EFI boot manager available: rEFInd

Try booting into Windows and following steps 1, 10, and 11 from this procedure. That should get rEFInd starting again in EFI mode. Thanks, I will do that...

Re: New EFI boot manager available: rEFInd

Based on a previous post by you; In a multi-Linux installation, you're likely to want a /boot/refind_linux.conf file for each distribution, so you'll need to generate this manually or run the mkrlconf.sh script for the second distribution. I would guess that the steps in a simple description would ...

Re: New EFI boot manager available: rEFInd

I went through all of your recomended detective work and have the menu back down to a two selection setup. Now the question comes to the setup of the refind.conf file. The Mint 16 kernel is still out at: Boot boot\vmlinuz-3.11.0-14-generic That is not a problem I suppose, but I would like to have th...

Re: New EFI boot manager available: rEFInd

I do agree with you that multiple kernels listed could be helpful if the sh*t hits the fan. However, this is a brand new install (one of which I would hope there is only a single kernel in), and only one distro thus far. If you think that something else is happening, more details are necessary, suc...
