    mint 7 shutdown


    I have used ubuntu and xubuntu for 2 years now, I just installed mint 7 on my desktop from a cd that i burned, after the install, when i went to restart, for about half a second the whole screen was filled with ERROR...it was too fast to even read, however, on restart mint works flawlessly, the only thing I wonder about, is on shutdown, the computer beeps one time really loud.... is this ok ? is there any thing I should look for ? thanks

    You could check the output of the command:
    Code:
    dmesg
    It's a long list and you'll have to sort through ir for errors.
    you could try piping with grep
    Code:
    dmesg |grep -i error
    Code:
    dmesg |grep -i fail

    Those look like some kind of video errors, they may or may not be the cause of your problem. I would spend a few minutes going through the output of dmesg without any grep to see if you find anything else that might be useful.
    See here.
