I just installed the MX 14.4 non-PAE on my old Toshiba Tecra S1 this past Thursday (this is my very 1st Linux distro). Everything went smoothly in the installation. Since I didn't want the XP any longer on the hard drive I chose the option to install on the whole hard drive which it reformated.

For two days I had no issues at all but at that time I was connecting to the internet via ethernet hardwire. So yesterday as I was checking out the various options I decided to see if the wireless connection would work. After I provided the router security code the laptop immediately connected and I could access the internet wirelessly. When I went to shut it down about it did but after a few seconds it rebooted.

Now it never shuts down fully; it goes to a blank end screen and you think it is fully powered off but then reboots. This was not happening when I only had it connected to the router by ethernet. But since I connected it to the internet wirelessly the issue is constant. It doesn't matter which way I have it connected now, it reboots.

In addition when the system loads I get these 2 warning:

1. Waiting for/and dev to fully populate. Preco configuration failed! And...

2. Not starting NFS kernal daemon. No exports. Warning!

I do not know the meaning of these warnings.  What else am I looking at with the warnings?

Do I need to do a clean install? Thanks.

 In the past we have had members ask for and get help on 2 or 3 forums at the same time and trying to run the various fixes suggested, and it always ended in disaster.

To avoid confusion you should only ask for and get help on one forum.

If you wish to fix this problem linux.org will be better able to help you,

 

 

Do I need to do a clean install?

I tried MX14 once and did not like it. Something Like Linux Mint XFCE or mate might be a better option.

I did some research on Mint but from Mint 14 on they no longer support non-PAE cpu/chipsets.  Being brand new to this perhaps I missed something.  Thanks anyway.

Mint is great, here read this:

Booting with non-PAE CPUs

To boot Linux Mint 17.1 on CPU which do not officially support PAE (Pentium M processors for instance), please use the "Start Linux Mint with PAE forced" option from the boot menu.

+1! :thumbup2:

 

pcpunk is correct, Linux Mint 17.1 will install on non-PAE systems, the only issue for some is if the graphics are very low end (like my 12 year old IBM T42 with 32MB ATI Radeon 7500 GPU), the text at the boot & shutdown may appear garbled. With a 64MB graphics chip or higher, this issue may not by present. Though the OS ran fine, better than Mint 13, which happens to also be compatible with non-PAE CPU's w/out the need to force anything. It's just that with Mint 13, a lot of updates would be required & the Medibuntu repository needs to be removed to prevent update errors, a bit tricky for new Linux users.

It's best to install Linux Mint 17.1 MATE or XFCE using the instructions that pcpunk provided, it's newer, faster & runs on older hardware fine. Plus supported until April 2019. 

 

Good Luck! :)
