Question Problem while booting.

2 things really...

1> While linux boots up I get an OK next to everything apart from at the end.

I get something about an acpi daemon .... acpid .... Failed.

It's not there long enough to write it all down. Thing is I don't know why it's there. I must have altered a setting somewhere.

Anyone know what I might have done, And how to remove it?

2> When the logon appears I get :-


When I click which to logon I then have to type in the password. I'm sure there was a logon where you select the user from a dropdown and then type the password

Are you using Mandrake 9.1?

If so you should see square shaped boxes in a list when you log on with User names and possibly root if youve got that enabled

Regards - ACPI - have you enabled Power Management when inside your distro.

Does your BIOS enable Power Management?

You could always try stopping the deamon running on boot up by going in to the Mandrake control centre - thers a section on start up serivces - just disable it.

Thanks Skyline Yes I'm using man9.1 with KDE but I might swap to gnome.

I managed to stop that service.

I've tried all sorts of things with the logon. At present it's default.
