I've been trying to install Mint on my new laptop via Mint4win (I have Katya as my only OS on my desktop PC but refuse to take risks with my laptops), but owing to some sort of graphics problem which I and several others have been posting about on various threads in the technical section of this forum, I can't get Mint 12 Main or LXDE to display on the screen. Until someone finds a way around this problem for Mint4win, I thought I'd put Isadora on, as that's still supported for another year and by that time the problem may not exist any more.
When I tried to download Isadora, I tried a few mirrors but kept getting an error message saying it couldn't be downloaded (no reason given). The same thing happened with Ubuntu Lucid and Debian Stable, but I was able to download Xubuntu 11.10 (which has the same boot problem), so it can't be the type of file I'm trying to download. Are the current LTS releases no longer available for download, only for support if they're already installed? If so, it seems strange that they're all still listed on the download mirror sites.
