I do *NOT* oppose to all the suggestions.
Start logging as soon as possible.
If mint is installed nicely this screen overflowing will not
happen anymore.
But it is while installing that people do things wrong and
want to know what they've done wrong.
They do not complain that they cant install mint, they complain
that they cannot read the error messages.

Think about it.
