After install was done I did updates and every thing was quit snappy and I was very pleased. However after I shut down and re-booted to Lisa later the systems hangs up right at the log in. Mouse and keyboard are dead, must hold power button to shut down. I tried this install twice with same result.
I just deleted the partition set up and have started over letting the install create the partitions for the Linux OS and will see if that works . . .
System re-started ok when I let the Install set up the HD partition. What was wrong with the way I did it?

Your Aspire One-722 has the same chipset.
for problem resolution.
My Acer Aspire 5250-BZ873 has more issues with Mint Linux 12.
The video chip problem hasn't been resolved and now the system

to my router.
I've successfully installed a fulling working version of Debian
Squeeze on my Aspire. The video and lockup problems no longer
