Hello everyone. This is my first post at the forum. I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook with Pentium IV 3GHz processor, 512 Mb RAM and 60 Gb HDD. My graphics card is an Intel 852GM with up to 64 Mb RAM. I have been using Ubuntu since Dapper Drake and I was quite satisfied that I found an easy way of getting into the Linux philosophy.
Lately I 've decided to change everything to my notebook, format my disk, and make a clean installation of WinXP as well as a brand new version of a friendly Linux distribution such as Linux Mint 7 (I 'd heard about it at a Greek forum and I 've decided to give it a try). During last week I have made a lot of unfruitful efforts to install Linux Mint 7 as well as the Ubuntu 9.04 and OpenSUSE 11.1. They all seem to freeze during the installation procedure and they never end up working properly.
On the other hand I managed to install OpenSUSE 10.3 and Linux Mint 5 LTS without having any problem. This is my first experience with Linux Mint and I find it very easy, stable and I feel I 'll enjoy it more than any other Linux distribution. It seems that I 'll stick to it permanently and I 'm really happy about it.
I would like to receive comments about my inability to install the latest release of the Linux Mint. Would you recommend to give up trying installing Linux Mint 7?
Thank you all in advance. Keep up the good work.
