i got an old laptop acer travelmate 2420 and decided to install lmde. i'm a long time fan of linux mint but i have read somewhere that lmde is much faster in performance compared to the standard linux mint flavors. so here's my experience.
installed into acer travelmate 2420 with no problems. all hardwares are detected and functioning well. yup it is really fast but have some bugs.
1. wine - if won't install even if you use ubuntu packages . after days of searching i finally read somewhere in the net that
wine from mepis linux will work. downloaded wine_1.3.22-1mcr85+1_i386.deb and finally wine works.
2. remastersys - can't install it, i haven't found any solution yet.
3. a4tech pk-336mb has no video using skype - solution from this website http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/219
4. jdownloader installed from http://insideofasmallbox.blogspot.com/2 ... nager.html
5.gyachi installed from http://blog.sudobits.com/2010/10/24/how ... ntu-10-10/
overall, as expected lmde performed well.
