Thanks, regards beachgardener.

I don't know about nvidia, but I did those security updates without removing the ATI proprietary driver and had no problem on reboot.

Ahh, thanks for that, i guess it would be much like my Ubuntu install the kernel updates go ok with nvidia installed on that, i will give it a go, i just remember ages ago when i was on openSuse back to 9.1 and then 10, 11, we had a certain procedure to put kernel updates in.
Thanks, regards Ken

edit: all worked splendidly well, i'm happy that we can now keep up with kernel security updates, cheers :)

Linux Mint 17 KDE and Xfce will probably be released by end of June. I think you are dead.

have a question. I installed mint 17 cinnamon and was wondering when the final relase comes out do I have to to a clean reinstall or will just doing the regular updates get me up to the final release. Just want to add this rc is awsome everything works perfect. Awsome job.

Please just follow the blog (http://blog.linuxmint.com), on the final release announcement that information will be shared. It depends on what issues are found during public testing of the RC.

If some of you guys would just read the thread, or the blog, you'd find some of these questions have already been answered. Sometimes multiple times.

This topic announced (way back :)) the name of upcoming Linux Mint 17. Some have been using the RC since before the announcements were up, and used this topic to report issues and problems. Now that the announcements are up, please shift to reporting your issues and problems in the comments on the announcements. Thank you.
