SimplyMEPIS 11.0 Beta 1 was released last week, but again is plagued by start problems for many people.
All during this SimplyMEPIS 11 development cycle boot problems have stopped many users from testing. Unfortunately, and probably the root of problem, is that this occurs for only some of the users with little hardware in common. To compound the issue, the boot issues haven't been caused by the same reason to the same people each release either. With so much variation, it can be very difficult to nail down corrections.
For example, the first four alphas would stop booting immediately after the GRUB screen for many testers.
