Re: 64bit LMDE + Nvidia Drivers = freeze on shutdown, logout

I am awed by your Kung Fu. Changing the nvidia kernel to persistent mode did the trick. I can now shutdown, logoff, and kill the x server any way I please, and it doesn't go into a hard freeze. Since the source of this problem was a Nvidia Kernel bug, And you've presented the work around, I'm going ...

Re: 64bit LMDE + Nvidia Drivers = freeze on shutdown, logout

Update: Back in Cinnamon, which is awesome. Adding my username to the video group did the trick. This has been wonderful, learning how to install liquorix and the newest drivers, instead of wait for the repositories. The original problem persists unfortunately. I can't exit the x server without a ha...

(Solved) 64bit LMDE + Nvidia = freeze on shutdown/logout

Hello, I love my LMDE 64 installation, but I have a small problem: I'm currently unable to use the menu buttons for "shutdown", "logout", and "switch users". Any time I do, the computer freezes hard, forcing a manual restart or power off. This also happens for Control + Alt + Backspace, and Control ...
