I have a new installation of Mint and it froze near the end of the install - just when the slideshow loaded.
I think it is based on what I read here: viewtopic.php?f=46&t=119215
However, the install is working and I can boot it up and everything - I just can't login.
I used the recovery install and root access to check the /home directory - it's empty.
I used useradd to create a new user and then I used mkdir to make the home directory (useradd didn't create it). I used passwd to set a password for the new user.
Login now works for that user, but I get an error saying that some security file could not be accessed in $HOME and then it logs out.
Is there a quick way to fix this without installation?
I notice in the post I linked to he also said:
