I installed KDE 64-bit, updated everything with the "Just keep my computer safe" update policy then installed some programs and configured things the way I like them. Everything was running smoothly up until I rebooted, then after the mint splash screen I was left with a black screen. I'm guessing this has something to do with graphics. I've since reinstalled mint and even rebooted things seem okay. However, I'm worried I'll run into the same problem again soon. If somebody could help me make sure it doesn't happen again I'd really appreciate it.
