newb question

Postby papahonk on Sun Oct 11, 2009 10:01 am

ok, short back ground. bought this tower with mint7 to play and learn on. went to mintinstall to load some games for me and the kids thought battle tanks would be cool clicked on it and it says its going to take almost 7 hours to download a 2mb file ?? my net book seems to be running fine played a couple you tube clips nothing lagged so i was wondering if it was some setting for the hardware. when i started to look and see if i could bungle through it.... i have no idea even how to find settings for hardware or a listing of hardware on a this machine.
please help the confused, lol

Just installed it here in Canada, with a slow adsl connection . . . downloaded, installed in less than 5 minutes !

The btanks game is 2.9 Mb . . .
And the btanks-data is actually 58.2 Mb in size.
