I ran mint julia on my eeepc 900, with no problem except if I want to update . Then, on the next boot, my password is not accepted with the message that the battery settings are faulty, and nothing that I think of will get me in except reinstalling mint
. I had forgotten that last night, and the same thing happened. I thought cool, it is the occasion to install puppy, as I have it in a usb stick and it works fine. I put the cd in, installed from the cd, all ok. Then puppy informed me to reboot, and I could not reboot, as "something was killing the init...". Sorry, can't remember the wording.
i tried the help of puppy, couldn't find what would work.
Now I am writing with puppy on the usb stick as nothing boots directly from the eeepc.
I reinstalled mint, but it stays stuck with a black screen and a blinking minus sign. It doesn't reach the splash screen, but the first image of the eeepc bios does appear.
I am quite the clutz and not too linux savvy, so please be gentle with me and maybe you could hint at how to fix this?
thanks and take care
