Here's what I recommend doing. It's very simple.

1. When you install, format only the / partition. Don't do anything to the other partitions.

2. Once complete, open the home folder of your new / partition in one window, and open your old home partition in another. Be sure to check the "Show hidden files" box in both.

3. Move all your important files from the old home partition to your new home folder. Once you're sure you have moved everything, delete the contents of the old home partition.

4. Follow the instructions on this page in order to connect your new home folder to your now-empty former home partition.

This may seem unnecessarily backwards or complicated, but after two failed attempts that required two fresh installs in a row, this is what I found to be the safest way to ensure that you save the settings you want from your old home partition without causing conflicts with the settings in your new home folder.

I just tested out Mint for the first time, I'd been following it for awhile, and it seems to suffer the same issue as Ubuntu does. If you're using a Asus P5N32 motherboard(and possibly all nVidia 680i based motherboards, although I'm not 100% sure) you will not be able to get a wired internet connection to run without using the following commands:
Code: Select all
$ sudo su
# rmmod forcedeth
# modprobe forcedeth msi=0 msix=0
# /etc/init.d/networking restart


I got this information from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766629&page=2 and it worked great for me on Ubuntu and Mint.

Absolutely fantastic. I admire all the dedications and hard work that you put into just to have the best possible distro out there. Congratulations once again, I'll sure make a review on my site. :)

Well, if your wireless is not supported, then it means it's not supported by the Linux kerne!l, so you're out of luck with ANY distro ;)
It's not Mint's fault.

My wireless still has problems (rt2500, limited to about 40 kB/s when running native) -> need to blacklist rt2500/rt2500pci and use ndiswrapper to get full bandwidth (about 1 MB/s)

I have a problem with my pci sound card.
When I boot up my system I hear the login screen sound. But once I log in I don't hear sound. :(
I ran a lspci in terminal. It is picking up my card but I can't figure out how to activate it. Please help
It works in 4.0 but not 5.0

Hey guys.

Thanks for this unbelievable edition of mint! Its simply brilliant! Installation no prob and wireless working (via ndiswrapper and ath_pci blacklist).

:?: One problem that remains from the beta, when installing wireless driver via the gui system freezes and driver is incorrectly installed. This is not a major issue as it is doable from the commandline.

Cheers again :mrgreen:
