Desktop spec

Postby steveking on Fri Jun 08, 2012 12:11 pm

Could people who are sucessfully running Linux Mint (any edition) post their computer specs on here?

It will give new users an idea of what hardware is tried tested and working if they are looking at buying new hardware.

Why Thank you! I have added myself to the list! (core i5 3.5 Ghz - 8Gb RAM - 1Gb AMD Radeon GDDR5 - 1 Tb SATA)

Unfortunately my graphics card is not working with Maya, and the third party drivers wont install. So no decent graphics and no sound!

Other than that mine works fine :D

Sorry about the AMD card they have not been too good with linux lately. But read and article saying they would be doing more linux support soon.
hope that's true.
as for the sound that may be fixable.
what is the sound card?

Dont worry sound and graphics are now fixed. I was lucky enough to have the drivers for my card on the AMD website so all is well and good posting.php?mode=reply&f=60&t=104566#

So now i cant add my spec because my system is running very smooth.
