Just completed an update and I can't tell the difference from RC1.

That is not criticism btw it is high praise. RC1 was so good I would hate it to be interfered with by any update!

Really nice distro. Thanks a lot.

Wow, Clem, Merlwiz and the rest of the team. What a great Mardi Gras present. I got up 2 hours ago at 4:00 am to put the finishing touches to my partition table before installing Elyssa RC1, (before going to work),I log in to the forum, and what do I find !!!!!!!!

Just burned the CD and I'm about to close the tray and I'm all fired up.

You made my day - many, many thanks.

P.S. Of course I meant Felicia RC1, not Elyssa RC1. All this emotion fries my neurones !!!!

Excellent release!! A hearty thank you for everyones work.

Especially love the fact that I can now see, and access my NTFS partitions right from the get go. I have a scanner that's not supported through SANE, and another bit of hardware that won't work through WINE, or VirtualBox, so needed to keep XP around. I do my work on XP, and the next time I boot up, I boot into LM, pull the files off the NTFS partition, and do my editing work then with Audacity or GIMP.

Only problem I've found with both the RC, and the Final, is that after installation, when it prompts you to remove the media, and to hit Enter, the drive tray doesn't eject, and nothing happens when I hit the Enter key. I have to use the pinhole on the drive to manually eject the tray, and then do a hard reboot. This is the only LM distro I've had this problem with. All others have automatically ejected the tray, and responded when the Enter key was hit. Drive is a Lite-On LH-20A1S. But since it's a one time hiccup, it's not a biggie.

Thanks again for everyone's hard work, and for setting the bar so high for other distros. :)

That is an upstream bug we inherited from Ubuntu.

This affects all editions of Linux Mint 6 and Ubuntu 8.10. A fix was released by Ubuntu, an upgrade to the latest udev should fix it: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/intre ... bug/283316

Hello all,
This is the 32nd distro I have tried in the last year and a half and it is without a doubt the best of the bunch. Congratulations to everyone involved.
