I have a video problem w/ Katya on a Dell Latitude X300 using Intel 855GM graphics. Booted AOK from the USB flashdrive but once installed to the HD, it borks at boot; it stalls when checking the battery state.
I have to manually boot with failsafe X to get video, but then it's poky. Removing compiz and desktop composition did not help.
describes a fix for Mint 10 but will that work with Mint 11 since the kernel for Katya is much newer, 2.6.38-8?
Tried asking for hlp in the Linux Mint forum at forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=74441 but no repliees, no suggestions and I keep getting sql 'too many connections' errors when trying to log in to the Mint forum yesterday and today, and the IRC channel for Mint support was earnest but didn't have any useful suggestions.
How may I solve this problem?
