Problem booting

Postby maiden30403 » Fri Nov 02, 2007 8:38 pm

I have a few problems with linux mint.

None of them stop me from being able to use the o/s and I have to say I'm loving it! So thumbs up! :D

When I boot I get this error:

I can get around this by hitting enter (countdown starts), then when it stops I hit enter again and am presented with the grub menu to select which kernal I want to boot. Also I get a black screen while everything is booting until login screen.

The other problem I have (also with Ubuntu) is that my USB storage devices wont automount, after editing fstab I can use 'pmount /dev/sdb1'.

As I've said these aren't major issues but it would be nice to have everything running flawlessly (everything is perfect in Ubuntu 6.06 BTW).

If anyone could shed some light on this situation it would be great, thanks.

i have the same issue, i thought it was just a really weird splash screen, but let me know if this is not the case.

I am having the same issue, pressing the down key twice takes me into GRUB where it then proceeds to boot fine.
