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.
