Netinstall?

Postby slakkie on Wed Aug 19, 2009 4:04 pm

Hello,

do you guys have a netinstall image somewhere?

Or can I use an Ubuntu netinstall, install a CLI system, change the sources.list to point to mint and install a Mint KDE desktop from there?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hello, and Welcome to Linux Mint. Nope, no netinstall image, but it is possible your proposed system may work, but it would be much better to just load the iso directly.

Ok.. Does anyone have a mint sources.list for Elyssa? I want to install a netinstall of Hardy and just for the sake of science see if it can be converted to LM. Since LM can use Ubuntu's repo's it should be a relative easy task..

firstly, notice it's commented out, so not enabled by default. It's a holding place for testing packages (e.g. updates) before they graduate to the ordinary repos.
