Cr-48; who knew mint and chrome could go well together?

Postby Goggles2114 on Fri Jul 15, 2011 10:52 pm

Been using Mint for the past month since my netbook (thanks google!) is about all I've got for computing. Do feel kinda bad that I'd flashed before the commercial chromebooks started coming out butI needed local functionality an mint has the advantage over Ubuntu in that all the codecs and stuff are already there.

Though I think I botched on filesystem installation since I'm getting freezes and stuff, that or something's come loose... which would be bad since I think I accidentally stripped a screw or three and would probably have to take it somewhere to see if they can undo things and put new screws in (costing about a hundred bucks.)

Prolly gonna get a bigger drive down the road, whether it's an internal drive or external network drive I haven't decided yet.

Currently getting help on GRUB and FSTAB mods to make my life a little less hectic (which I"m grateful for!)

Once I can sign off on these working I'm going to copy the changes off site so when I change out drives or mint editions (or even other linuxes) I can put things how they should look.

Good luck in getting your netbook squared away.
