Cinnamon crashes on start after updates

Post by RealGomer »

I downloaded the several updates for Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon on October 7. Tonight when I tried to start Mint it kept crashing. First time I've had any problems with Mint since I installed Mint 17.1. Suggestions?

Here is an alternative method to perform a clean installation from scratch:
1. Install 17.2 from LiveCD
2. Run all system updates available via Update Manager
3. Reboot
4. Run 17.3 upgrade via Update Manager > Menu > Edit > Upgrade to Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa:
5. Reboot
6. Run all system updates available via Update Manager
7. Reboot
8. Install recommended NVidia driver via Driver Manager
9. Reboot
