Mint 14 has gone Gold!

If you've been having troubles, as I have, with the Mint 14 RC download, you might want to consider starting over with Mint 14 Gold...as I will ":O}

Sigh... Text book install right down to the "remove CD and press enter at the end.

I reboot to Mint 14 Gold and get a login screen, annoying as I asked for auto login, no biggie easy enough to fix these days...so I login screen goes dark the Mint themes sounds it's chimes and up pops the login screen... I tried several more times, then just let the auto timer count down and auto log me in, that way I'm sure it's not me...

same same eternally repeating login screen. I tried the start up interface 2d options cinnamon, mate, always with the login screen! So I reinstall, same thing!

Suggestions from anyone but Fedora fans, you guys never let up!! ":O}

Seems to me that you are stuck in a login loophole in our known Universe. Probably gold doesn't mean better in that Universe! I wish you good luck in getting out to experience a new level of Linux-Linux Gold!

I suspect your user account has either been deleted/not created or has somehow gotten the rights messed up. The only way I know of to resolve that is to login as root and manually add/modify the account. Unfortunately, I've no idea how to do that under Mint.

I'm having an adventure in software everybody!!

I dumped my copy of Gold 14 and re-download and re-burn and re-install... Same damn thing! I try installing to another drive, same damn thing. I try the RC -14 again, can't load grub now, installed fine on my 90 gig Corsair, but can't load grub now on my 256.

In anticipation of such odd occurrences I also downloaded 32 bit M-14 gold last night.

So I try that...It works! ( I had Mint 13 all ready to go if it, 32 bit mint 14, failed, would have told me I definitely had a hardware problem if it to failed)

64 bit Mint 14 is a bit of a mess as far as three of my drives and I are concerned!

As the RC Mint 14 did install once to my test drive, I thought for sure I was in another hardware nightmare!

I don't know why it won't install properly in 64 bit ... To find out I'd be willing to apologize to Fedora and her misguided minions...really I would! ":O}

( My way of saying thank you Chris! ":O}


P.S. If you really really like logging in this Mint is for you!!
