Re: Linux Mint 7 x64 RC1 released!

Postby bbbrox on Fri Jun 19, 2009 10:40 pm

Just went from x32 RC1 to x64 RC1. Looking good. Only major issue is with PulseAudio/ALSA and handling integrated sound + USB headset, but I don't think there's a way to fix that until Ubuntu (and Fedora and everyone else) cleans up the huge sound system mess.

Only other thing, and this one is kind of silly, but the boot up/down splash screen is different from x32. Instead of the nice charcoal background with diagonal lines, and the mint leaf with the light rays, it's just a plain black background with the unadorned, washed-out leaf, logo, and progress bar, like the splash screen you get when first running/installing from the CD. Is there a way to configure it to use the nicer looking splashes?

Skype64 works well. Going to be testing VirtualBox and Wine tomorrow.

Thanks!

That Ubuntu updates are installed is quite normal. Mint is Ubuntu Plus.

The repos are down (or at least were a few minutes ago)
I have alerted Clem about it (he is the only one that can do something about it)

Any idea about the splashscreen issue? Is that intentional for the RC, or a bug?
