New to Mint!

Postby linuxuser0 on Wed Jan 26, 2011 12:07 pm

Hi, I am back once again to using Linux and decided to give Mint a try. I have tried numerous versions (Mepis, Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, etc...)in the past and once again I got tired of windows crap. I was pleased with the ease of installation with Mint and the way it looks. After installation I did have to connect with wire to update system files and download the Broadcom drivers required to get the wireless working. That leads me to a question if anyone reads this is, can the wireless drivers be slip streamed into the installation disc? I always seem to be installing and re-installing on my computer and this would be nice to be able to install right away. Thank You

Welcome to the Mint forums linuxuser0. You will find a lot of information and help from some very enthusiastic and knowledgeable Mint users. I'm sure you will also want to visit our Mint Community Website at http://community.linuxmint.com/. You will find real-time help in our IRC channels. Just go to Menu>Internet>XChat IRC and when you open it you will automatically be taken to our #linuxmint-chat and #linuxmint-help channels.

I'm sure someone in the community, either here in the forums or on IRC can advise you on slipstreaming drivers. Have fun with Mint.
