White Screen on login

Postby chyapay » Sat Apr 24, 2010 3:49 am

Hello! I randomly get this bug on login, and i don't even have a simple clue with what it depends on.
When i log into my user at gnome environment set as just "Gnome", often (probably like 7 times per 10 logins) it paints all the screen area with white color and there is a plain mouse cursor and that's it, i can't do nothing but ctrl+alt+backspace to run the login screen again. Then i choose "Failsafe Gnome" and everything goes well in that mode. It is always OK in "failsafe gnome". But whenever I choose just normal "Gnome", i get under the risk of its whitescreen crash. It's annoying me and i'd rather prefer to work in non-failsafe environment, and no update helps. The problem still persists on my up-to-date Helena Mint Linux 32-bit. For info, i got 1 Gb RAM and 250 GB HDD, and i use Athlon Barton 2200+. Thx for attention.

This section is for reporting bugs not for problems. Please post again in another section, probably Hardware support.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
