Re: Not starting NFS Kernel

The above warning comes up before Desktop comes up. Is there a solution? Welcome to MX Linux. I wondered the same thing when I switched to Linux from Windows and found out it's one of the many things to ignore. The good thing is you picked a great Linux distro that it doesn't hurt to ask. :smile:
