I changed time-out from 5sec (default) to 90secondskate /etc/default/grub
I am using a 32" LCD TV as monitor (native screen resolution 1360x768).
I used the DDM for downloading/installing the NVIDIA driver, and since my desired screen resolution (1360x768) was not listed in the drop-down menu of NVIDIA X Server Settings X Server Display Configuration, used the workaround/method as posted by "nerd65536" in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php? ... st12304338
I am not very familiar using the correct technical jargon 'cum' terminologies in relation to Linux systems.
Ever since installing Update Pack 2013.09.06 I am experiencing frequent 'hanging/stopping' when booting the system.
The login (boot process) is basically in two stages viz:
1. the screen shows a running-bar which runs smoothly and stops about 4/5 of its running lenghth - the screen then immediately changes to
2. an almost idendical screen in which the running bar has already progessed 1/4 of its running lenght and then progesses in a 'jumping' manner. Sometimes all the way to the end (which is good) but sometimes it just stops (which is not so good), refuses to move any further and I am forced to press the reboot botton on my computer.
Occasionally, the booting process is already 'hanging/stopping' at "stage 1".
My GNU GRUB menu (version 1.99-27+deb7u1) still indicates the availablity of the old kernel SolydXK GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.9-1amd64. I attempted to use this kernel but the system won't boot at all.
Aside from that bothersome issue the system is running without any problems.
Request assistance to enable a smoother and reliable booting process. Thanks in advance.
