The server edition, will even run faster then the linux mint one ,because a lot of the requirements for the gui are not there , and since it's the server edition, after the install ,it's up to you to actually start whatever you need.
Because I do NOT want server edition. I do need GUI desktop. The problem is I cannot run the live cd with GUI, because my special hardware needs a patch to the kernel. That is why I am asking for a text-interface of installer. But I am NOT going to use it without GUI forever.
So I need 1. install the mint with text interface. 2. then patch my kernel under text interface to bring back the GUI.
I am stuck at the first step: install mint with text interface. Almost all linux distros have text installer. But I do not know how to invoke it from mint live CD.
If someone can show me a simple we to modify the live CD kernel, that will also do!
