I am intending to upgrade my computer next week and I was wondering if Mint 2.2 has a problem running on a 64 bit machine. I have installed mint on a socket 754 machine for a friend and it run great, but has anyone installed Mint on a AM2 machine with integrated graphics ?
Got a Biostar NF61S Micro - NF61S
Biostar NF61S Micro Socket AM2 / DDR2 800
PCI-E / GeForce 6100 Onboard
with a AMD Athlon64 3500+, and a another Biostar board, with
a Sempron 64 3.4 GHz also with GeForce 6100 Onboard. No problems, only
integrated sound does not work with Bianca on first board but does with
Have not got any dual core systems.
That is a matter of opinion, I find it faster, no major problems for me, But
a)I always install KDE so there, I could not be giving you a fair opinion,
b)At least it has got sound working on first motherboard
c) I have no widow partitions to access or any wifi.
I have only had the board about two months but no problems, it only has one IDE socket, the audio is very good, but does not work in Bianca.
There is a patch for audio I used, not sure where I got it from, but it is called realtek-linux-audiopack-3.5-6b in my home directory,
I use a Delta 44 soundcard, because of ham radio requirments and the onboard sound is neary as good as that
Your in UK, like me, try CCL they have offer with processor
Thanks for the CCL recommendation Nick but I prefer to buy my components local. I am in Aberdeen and I have a shop close to me that is excellent on swap-out of faulty goods. I pay a few quid more but I like the personal attention of my local trader.
I have only bought on-line once, they sent me the wrong stuff and it took a month to sort it out.
I have decided to stick with Asus motherboards for now because the Asus I am using works, logic suggests if one works so will the rest !
I will be upgrading to Cassandra when the final release erm.... is released ! Do you know if there will be a DVD version as I don't have any CDR's left. Thanks for your recommendation NiksaVel I am very happy with MInt, though I find the versions come a little to often for my liking.
no it's a CD release, but there is no problem with burning a CD ISO to a DVD disc ... there's plenty of room after all... done it myself number of times when I was out of CD-Rs
if bianca "works" for you, there is no reason whatsoever to upgrade to cassandra immediatelly...
Don't follow the classic M$ induced mindset... must have the newest latest fastest thing... if Bianca works fine for your needs, why would you need to change anything?
Windows is extremely fast after a fresh install. If you want to make it stay that way: - don't use it.
Bianca works exceptionally well for me. I like to play with my computer, always tweaking, upgrading hardware and software. I have a removable rack so that I can change hard drives, I install my OS often. I assume Cassandra will be slightly better at handling newer components (ie: 64bit ) than Bianca. Micro$oft ? Who ?? LOL I have left Micro$oft behind a long time ago, using LInux demonstrates the fact that I don't follow the classic M$ induced brainwashing mindset ...... Windows XP has not been on my computer for years now and Vista won't even get in my house let alone my hard drive. With Micro$oft products you also get a lot of free stuff like virus's, spyware, trojans, hackers, internet popups ! wow what am I missing !! lol.........
