I just upgraded Linux Mint Debian Edition with the up7 package.
The update manager failed initially (can't remember where...) so I ran
sudo apt update,
sudo apt dist-upgrade,
sudo apt upgrade and
sudo dpkg --configure -a.
Situation now: when I reboot and select the new kernel (3.10-2-amd64) from the grub menu, the following happens:
early console in decompress_kernel
Decompressing kernel... Parsing ELF ... done.
Booting the kernel.
[<...> Could not configure common clock.
Linux Mint splash screen appears.
The NVIDIA Screen appears.
I get this error message:
FAIL: startpar: service(s) returned failure: plymouth ... failed!
- The system quits.
Sometimes the first message will be shown twice with a login prompt in between, after which the system will quit.
Any ideas? I will be happy to boot into the old kernel and provide any output!
