      I just installed antiX 23.1 on my Compaq Presairo CQ70 laptop. The installation went fine.
      I am having problems starting the system. The GRUB starts fine, then the page for the kernal selection opens OK, then there is a black screen for 4-5 minute until it proceeds with the startup.
      Below is the system information:

        You installed 23.1 64bit full, so you have two kernels installed by default. Please, on the bootscreen choose the advanced options and then the 5. kernel instead of the 6.1 kernel.Is the delay still there?

          Try using the 5.10 legacy kernel.
          Grub boot menu Advanced

          Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

          antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

            Thank you for the help.
            I tried the 5.10 kernel which reduced the delay to 2 minutes.
            I tried the 4.19.276 kernel which eliminated the delay.
            Thanks again for the help.
