I am newbie to MX. Have used ubuntu and mint for a long time on my other laptop. Been happy with it.
The current system i installed MX was a little older & ubuntu was slow on it.
I read great reviews of MX and thought it would give a new life to my system, however, it takes 3 to 4 minutes to come to startup during boot.
In addition, the clock widget shows CPU use is 100% at the start, is this okay? I have done a complete wipe of the hardware and installed however it has not helped.
I plan to use a single OS - MX, if it runs fine. I need to enter my password twice before the startup page, is this normal?
I am not good with command line, so elaborate a little if i need to work in terminal.
I have done the kernel changes as mentioned in MX linux home page and edited GRUB SVIDEO=0 as suggested in some posts and disable splash. But these have not helped really. Please guide me guys. I am attaching the output from quick system info
