[SOLVED]Install D620 Desktop want load properly

Postby HatichnakiFrenititi on Fri Jan 11, 2008 9:27 am

Hi MINT Community!
I love linuxmint, and want to install it on my DELL D620 Notebook.

So i boot Daryna LIVE CD in grafic Safe Mode, but now i just see the Desktop Background Wallpaper and the bottom panel which is greyed.

No Desktop "Install" Icon is there and no Menu item -- Nothing ...

Please how can i INSTALL MINT now -- is there a command line HOWTO somewhere - or some nice Boot Option for me to try?

thank you
Sincerly,
HatichnakiFrenititi

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Can you tell us which hardware is in it, video, chipset, wifi and cpu should at least be possible to find out

OK i fixed it with the following

When i booted ubuntu to get teh hardware specs i saw on the very first thing, that it asks me for my WLAN PASSPHRASE to enter, which appaerently kept MINT from booting X properly! (BUG ATTENTION)

So i manually switched the WLAN off (HARDWARE TRIGGER)

Now i can actually see the complete MINT Desktop experience!

ps.
I pres install now!
:D

Cheers
