Yea, Google is my friend, changed GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="profile"

However I think the cause of your problems are more likely memory orientated. What's the output of free -m
Code:
dan@danlaptop ~ $ free -m

Swap:         3060          0       3060

dmesg gave this huge output, but something I noticed

I can post more if you want but it's huge, I'll also look into the logs.
post #1772 of 4043
hmmm, I don't recall seeing any of that in my logs so maybe we have different issues.

I know this is for Arch Linux, but I wonder if this the UXA / SNA thing posted on this wiki applies to you:

Also I created /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf with the contents in the Wiki, but I am unsure if it actually took place. Do I need to get Xorg to read this file?

Edit: I'm also 2-2 on normal restarts since disabling the splash screen, so I am getting somewhere.
post #1774 of 4043
I wonder if that error is relating to the modeset=0 thing you did because of this line in the call trace: encoder's hw state doesn't match sw tracking (expected 0, found 1).

Maybe try changing it back and seeing if you still get that error on reboot.

[edit]
re the Arch wiki, there's also a possibility that Mint is still using the older driver (UAX) so you're not changing anything by hardcoding that in.

The other thing I noticed is a few things about power saving in the call trace, so maybe have a play around with some power saving options in the kernel module

I don't know how to do that, i found one file in /etc/modprobe.d called i915-kms.conf and it contains one line that says "options i915 modeset=1". I've tried changing it to zero but it doesn't do anything. I think I am going to reinstall and disable the splash screen and see if it boots, I can't keep track of all that I have tried to change.

Yea I know, but the article I used said it wasn't permanent, that I would have to edit the grub.conf file to keep the setting. But for some reason it's still using zero, even if I try to hardcode it in as one.
post #1778 of 4043
So I reinstalled LMDE Mate and turned off the splash screen and am able to boot no problem. Logs also look clean as of now, I am not seeing any of the same errors I was seeing before, whats a good way to test if the graphics are working as they should. I do notice a slight stutter as I type in the reply box here, like I type and sometimes letters are all added at once. Mate also seems more annoying, for example I was trying to connect to my cell phone mobile hotspot and it asked me to give a root password to connect.

Also something I have noticed, I installed a 20gb partition for / and 90 gb for /home. When I have been reformatting via Gparted, that Firefox kept some add-ons that I had installed, is that because Firefox is part of the home directory? And thanks for all your help Plan, appreciate it.
post #1779 of 4043
Many applications keep their profiles and settings in hidden folders in your home folder. eg /home/thestraw0039/.mozilla/
(you may already know this, but hidden files / folders in Linux are files / folders prefixed with a dot)
post #1780 of 4043
So I went back to Cinammon, turned off the boot splash and I am still getting the same errors in the messages log so I'm giving up on Mint. I'm considering going straight to Debian or Arch, I just don't know anything about yum compared to apt-get. What GUIs do people recommend for Debian, or should I just give Arch a ride and see what happens?
