Dell 1530xps with Mint 8 already dual booting with Windows 7 successfully, no problems.
Running Linux Mint for persistent USB pendrive 3.2 gb. Problems on install:-
Mouse on laptop freezes but USB mouse takes over OK.
Wireless connected ok. Then on reboot would not detect networks. Ran OK on Mint 8. Reboot later picked up wireless OK so intermittent.
Clicked on update icon. Update manager opened, downloaded a number of package updates, then gave this message:-
E; dpkg interupted
E; _cache - > open() failed please report
Copy/Paste not working for this message.
Hi, just tried in terminal 'sudo dpkg --configure-a'
and dpkg help
Both came back with error messages saying 'a not found', but update manger successfully worked afterwards. seemed to have a problem with nvdia which must be a driver.
I would like to get Mint 9 fully operational
