I solved it!for anyone with the same issue, here's what happened...In the morning, when I installed wireshark, I also updated libgcrypt because of the dependency. looks like the systemd journalling daemon depended on the old version (v11) however. My guess it that's why it hung during shutdown, and that's definatly why it hung during boot.The solution was...1.
I just tried updating an Atom system from Salix to Mint, and when I boot the disk regularly it just hangs at the white Linux Mint logo screen. In compatibility mode it boots and installs, but then when I reboot it may or may not login properly. It will sometimes hang again after logging in at the same white Linux Mint logo screen. I'm gonna try the XFCE version and see what happens.
