I've just read of the release of the "Google Gadgets for Linux".
I know it might be too late for additions, but could it be possible (if it's not there yet) to add it to Elyssa?
If not, will at least be added to the repositories?
Thanx

Okay i have tried 4 different web browsers on Elyssa 048 and found a bug. For some reason they like to close on their own. Tried Firefox 2 & 3, Seamonkey, and Opera. Every browser likes to close randomly. Youtube or other video sources seems to be the biggest cause. Hope this will be fixed in the final version of elyssa.

What these appear to have in common is Flash. Are all four browsers using the same Flash plugin? What Flash plugins are they using? Personally, I'd be quicker to blame Flash than to blame Mint, and I don't see how Clem can possibly be responsible for Flash being buggy.

This is probably due to Flash 10.

Flash 10 makes FF3 crash immediatly. Opera seems to handle it better.

Can't seem to get my sound working. I'm trying to use the digital out from my on-board sound chip. In previous versions of Mint (Cassandra, Celena, Daryna) I would just switch to the Realtek ALC650F mixer and enable the digital device (check the box and turn the volume up) then switch back to the Alsa mixer.

This seems to have no effect in Elyssa. I have been messing with the various mixers (Alsa, Pulse, etc.) but I just can't seem to make it work. I did a fresh install on an unused partition and did all the updates shown in Mintupdate. :(

Hardware:
Shuttle SB75G2
Intel 875/ICH5 motherboard
Realtek ALC650 on-board sound

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks, Tim

won't start on my Acer 5050 Laptop, no matter how many command line parameters i set...
I think it was a bad decision to base Mint 5 off of Hardy as this so called LTS Release is downright crap... the Kernel can't find my friggin Processor and locks up while trying to find SATA Devices THAT ARE NOT EVEN THERE.
All i'm getting to see is the Load-Bar that instantly freezes the moment it shows up on screen... the CD i burnt with the Release on it has been shattered at the nearest wall... can't see a better use anymore for ANYTHING that is being based off of Hardy or uses the latest Kernel.

Writing this from a new HP dv6000, using the LiveCD of Beta048. Everything's working great - video, sound, Flash, even wireless worked right out of the box. I am mightily impressed. I'll be partitioning today, and will install Mint 5 stable when it comes out. Excellent work, guys. Many thanks.

EDIT: OK. I've now installed Beta048 and things are still going well. Only problem is Compiz doesn't seem to be working at all. I'm using nVidia Corporation GeForce 8400M GS, and apparently this is a bug in Hardy, so I'm still hunting for a solution. I'll let you know if I find one.

EDIT PART DEUX: Solution found: Open Envy NG, select NVidia, and then select Automatic Hardware Detection. Compiz now working fine.

jadephyre,

have you tried putting "irqpoll" EARLY in the commands... i had to put it somewhere in the middle... if i appended it to the end, it doesn't work.

i don't know why this "irqpoll" this is necessary at all but for a lot of folks, it seems to be....

Hi!

If you want to add a new starter to the gnome-panel, i get graphic-errors. these errors aren't caused by my drivers but by the default theme.
see screenshot: http://de.tinypic.com/view.php?pic=348t0uw&s=3

the second thing:
If an emblem for a directory is too big it is cut of by the border of nautilus.

Maybe you can fix this.

Best regards,

Hey Clem (or anyone that knows)

Has the Linux Mint 5 stable already been released?

Doesn't look like it's available in the Asia mirror yet, they probably want it to be available in all the mirrors before they announce it
