Question Linux mint 18.1 cinnamon crashed


Hello,
I just installed linux mint 18.1 cinnamon a few days back and it is the only os in my computer right now. From very beginning in the time of boot and shut down it showed messages of error but it went too fast to read. It happens in dos may be. Today I installed NVIDIA driver and switched to it from intel graphics and after reboot a message showd which was something like this, "Linux-mint has just crashed, you are in fallback mode now".
Please help me get rid of this trouble.

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: Currently OpenMandriva. Previously openSUSE, PCLinuxOS, CentOS, among others over the years.

Driver Manager in the menu is the recommended way to install Video Drivers in LinuxMint.

kmohanta,

Welcome to LQ.

Software rendering problems often arise with using Cinnamon and, generally speaking, it is advisable to use the MATE version or Xfce instead.
