Bug?/Solution

Postby laofzu on Tue Sep 25, 2007 11:14 pm

I love the new Linux Mint 3.1. Had a small problem with it though. Booted from live CD, installed fine. On reboot, stalled on progress bar. Found solution was to use old win98 boot floppy, run fdisk /mbr and then install. Must be problem in overwriting the grub bootloader from Cassandra. I will leave it to the experts to figure out, just wanted to bring it to someone's attention. I really love the new artwork, it looks very professional and polished.

Another great release. Clem!

I particularly appreciate you making a greater native resolution available.

I suspect the limitations of my resolution are more related to my videocard.

Once again, a great release!

GREAT RELEASE overall!!



(Lest I left a contrary impression).u

After your most recent release of mint 3.1

There really isn't a comparable distro other than PClinxOS.

Keep it up...soon you'll be No. 1

(Just add in support for higher screen resolutions).

Celena's quality is exactly as I expect from Mint's team work: excellent!
A minor quirk, though, are the Cassandra Green and Cassandra Blue themes which, in fact, are both blue... :wink:

Kanishka: It's not a bug. They both use the same window decorations and all but with a different default background, one is green, the other is blue. It's meant to be that way. It's confusing because Gnome doesn't directly apply the new background when selecting a them until you press the related button.

You open firefox and go to http://www.linuxmint.com/software then you select the application you want and click "download", and "open with mintinstall". You can also download the mint file and double click it in Gnome to run it with mintInstall.

Does celena change the default Gnome settings for wireless? Cause the only distro that works ok with my wireless card seems to be Mint XFCE. It is the only distro that auto connects every time by default and doesnt require me to manually type in sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode auto to get wireless to connect. If this is fixed in celena I'll download it in a heartbeat but otherwise xfce rocks too.

jbaerbock: You might want to try to replace network-manager with Wicd, see here (alternatively you could go for a manual configuration... in network-manager):

Hey Clem,
I did try WicD in Mint Gnome and while I am technically able to auto connect it won't without the previously mentioned sudo command. For some reason my wireless has to be made to go to mode auto before it will connect to anything. In XFCE this isn't the case, it works all the time.

Any ideas what Merlwiz did that fixed it in XFCE?

What about automatically calling this command at boot time?

That would work, what would I have to do to make that work? I have very limited experience with making scripts.

You could add the line in the end of the /etc/gdm/PostLogin/Default file... it's messy but it would work fine.
