I am running Mint6 on my wife's Dell Inspiron 1420 of about a year ago vintage. I installed Mint6 for her after crashing into upgrade problems with ubuntu9.04 (and the simple fact that I have always liked Mint and wanted to ease her into using it since I think she will like it better.
Her only complaint with MINT6 so far is the updating and installing which seems to be getting addressed in Mint7. Cool, but I don't want to upgrade and have the same mess I had with 9.04. As I recall, (forgive me I've got 5 PC's here and two at work, all running different *nix varieties) there was some video problems after the upgrade.
Here is the Q: Has anyone done a Mint7 upgrade on a Dell Inspiron 1420 yet? Were there issues or not. How about other Dell lappies?.
Since this was originally Veesta and i ripped it out and stomped it in the dirt the first day (I'm in China and Dell refused to sell a non-windooz anything in China) Dell is not a lot of help to me, so I was hoping someone here had some experience. I really don't want to rile my wiffie up by having to go through the uninstall/ reinstall dance while she just wants to do her email.
Thanks for any replies
