I just bought a refurbished computer [AMD Athlon(tm) 64 2X Dual Core Processor 4400+, 2.3 GHz, nVidia Quadro NVS 210S, 2GB, 750 GB hdd]. I've burned a fresh LMDE 201109 dvd and it is presently updating (with the update manager). Once again (as in an earlier post in this thread), the terminal output looks to be stuck in a changelog. Here's a screenshot. Do I just wait and the update will finish without further terminal output? Or what?
I have another 2 GBs of ram that I haven't installed until I decide for sure whether I want to keep this computer. I don't know whether it has hardware virtualization enabled or not. I don't remember the bios version, but it's something less that 2.2.5. I saw on another forum that the Bios verison 2.2.5 has hardware virtualization enabled by default (but that there's no mention of it in the bios set-up). The enclosed Screenshot-2.png seems to imply that this computer presently does have hardware virtualization, but that's not what I've seen elsewhere. I suppose I could just install Virtualbox and see if I can enable more than one processor (and if so, then I think that will imply that, yes, I do have hardware virtualization). But I think I need for updating to finish first.
Any comments will be appreciated.
