I am running Mint Debian LDME.
Sometimes, randomly, when I start up the computer, I get a blank screen, nothing showing. Then I restart, then it comes up fine, like nothing happened.
Is this just like an anomaly? It's not necessarily a problem, just wondering what the heck is up with that.
what does blank screen mean? before or after the login? is the system up2date? what hardware? i have no experience with ldme, but you could always try to press strg+alt+f1 if its showing the terminal/login then, login with your username and type startx.
other idea i would give a try is to switch from open-source graphics driver to the proprietary driver or the other way arround.
Blank screen, no picture, no response. System is up to date. Specs are in my sig
You know what LDME means?
After it says "Wait until /dev is populated", it goes to blank screen, even F1 doesn't work.
I did not try switching drivers, but that really has nothing to do with it, right?
how much ram and do you have swap?
i cant suggest you anything else than switching drivers as i have no idea about the mistake -
also can you make grub load in verbose mode so we can see where it hangs
I don't have a swap partition, but I do have 8GB RAM. Should be enough.
I'll try to remember verbose, but this is totally random, it could happen one day, and not do it for weeks.
yeah ram is fine
but yeah set verbose mode so we can see where it freezes :)
