I've installed Linux Mint 11 Katya (dual-booting with Win7) on my PC. After some problems with booting, I decided to use NeoGrub to add a Grub-based bootloader, configurable from within Windows, to the standard Windows boot manager. Fine. However, when I boot Mint from there, I don't get any GUI. I only get a tty prompt, saying
Linux Mint Katya kapok login:
Kapok is my hostname. This shouldn't show up, right? And what am I supposed to type in there, really? The password I chose during installation? The username? Both? Whatever I type seems to return a message like this
tty1 Main Process (a number) killed by SEGV signal
Followed by the same login prompt as before. If I switch tty with Alt+Ctrl+F? I get the same prompt, except on F7 (which should be the GUI?) where it only shows some kind of log text but no prompt.
Is there actually some problem here, or is it just me who's stupid and don't get what to do? (never used Linux before)
Also, here's the Grub code I use to boot Mint:
title Linux Mint 11 Katya find --set-root /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-8-generic kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-8-generic ro root=/dev/sda5 initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic
