If you want an older version of LMDE, you can find all ISO files here

linuxmint-debian-201009-gnome-dvd-i386.iso is the stable one?

Any torrents left?

I am not sure also which .iso would be the best for Stable issues :)
Hope and waiting that Zerozero will kindly answer both questions, mine (in this topic, other thread) and yours here also ;)
Linux/Unix is about freedom, Windows about slavery.

Well two options here.

The first is, give the new latest repository and the rolling distro a try, its actually very solid and stable.

However I have a feeling you mean the Linux Mint which can be frozen at squeeze so it can effectively run Debian stable. For creating a LMDE box based on debian stable see viewtopic.php?f=197&t=55403

However If you are going this route, once your mint apps are working disable everything but your squueze repos! The mint updates will eventually cause dependancy problems. Just install, switch to squeeze, disable mint repos and THEN you can update to get any new relevant security patches.

Hope this helps.
Cheers

Get the linuxmint-debian-201009-gnome-dvd-i386.iso and when you are ready, disconnect the computer from the network.
Then install linuxmint-debian-201009-gnome-dvd-i386.iso and when it gets done, reboot. DO NOT CONNECT to the network yet.

Once the computer comes back to the desktop, open from terminal sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list hit enter, type your password and the sources.list will open up.

Then you will want to replace the following:

Code: Select all
######Debian Main Wheezy Testing Repos
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free

with this sources.list pointing to the stable branch;

Code: Select all
######Debian Squeeze Main Repos

###### Debian Squeeze Update Repos

deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-proposed-updates main contrib non-free


Leave this line at the top of your sources.list -
Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport


Then once you have saved the file, reconnect to the internet, and in terminal type sudo apt-get update .
then if you so desire, open Synaptic, and install any updates that are there.
Once done, you should have a stable LMDE Squeeze and be good to go.

Actually, if the OP used the newer spins, he might have the same issues he is having now, as the newer spins have been updated since the last spin for the .ISOs.

If the OP uses the older version, they would be more inline with Squeeze and therefore may not be susceptible to the issues they are having now with the newer updates from "Wheezy / Testing".
