I think that the Glib warning is a kernel bug and happens to everyone right now, it's been reported to the kernel maintainers and is not what is causing the problem.

From what I gather there is something causing your X server to crash, and not be able to restart (it's trying to, which is causing the message to flash up over and over again).

I don't use Mint 9 LXDE personally, but think it would help diagnose and solve the problem if we knew both what sort of thing you are doing just prior to the crash, and also the output of

Code: Select all

inxi -F
Assuming you have inxi installed. Also, you could paste your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to pastebin and link to that. Please don't paste it *here* - it is very long.

have you tried reinstalling grub?
