Mint can't boot after installing wine 3.0

Post by Kwaku Apraku » Wed May 23, 2018 2:53 am

I installed wine on mint in the vmware. After I try to reboot and mint can't boot again. The process stopped somewhere along the line.

How can I get it back.

Hi Kwaku
you will need to give a lot more information, before we can attempt to help you:
- Make & Model No of your machine.
- which Desktop Environment of LinuxMint, that you are currently using.

and a description of what you did, and where you obtained that method if installing ./wine 3.0

Please, be more specific about where exactly it got stuck.
We need some kind of error message.

did you Set a Restore Point in the VMware software ?
ie: do you have any way to back-out of the current system ?.
