Re: Debian Etch as primary, 3 others besides

crusti wrote:openSUSE 10.2: Looks good, but needed to configure support for multimedia, and this took about a half hour or so surfing the net for info and getting the right packages chosen in the package manager. The default way of picking an app from the menu shows too many apps, and that's confusing to new users. Still evaluating this system, but I put it on hold when I became minty fresh.

What you need there is the "smart" package manager. Search the web for "suse smart channel" or "smart channels" and add those to your "smart" config. If you know your ways around that it will give multimedia and everything within 15 minutes after the installation. And having a lot of choice is always a good thing :wink:

Hey, thanks scorp123, I'll look for that when I get home tonight.

Still can't wait for Tuesday. I'm going to burn a stack of dvd's and hand them out like free mints at work.

Thanks for your hard work on these forums!

I'm running the following:

Aopen Laptop Ubuntu 6.10 but will to Bianca when it settles

Whitebox Atholon Bea

On my external drive:

Fedora 6 (I used Fedora for a good while) and Mepis 6 (my favourite KDE)

I'm planning to stay with Mint (unless it does something stupid).

Etch is my primary distro, but I use Bea frequently. (I also play with sidux which has its toes hanging over the edge.)

I'm using Linux Mint 2.0 "Barbara" on my main PC. I'm going to upgrade to "Bianca" as soon as it's available for download. My backup PC has Ubuntu 6.06LTS and Win2K (just in case). My wife uses an iMac with OS X 10.2.8 and my laptop is a IBM Thinkpad i1452 with Ubuntu 6.10. I'll probably put "Bianca" on that too if all goes well.

Acer TM 4202 Laptop - Dual Boot Mint Bea and XP Home

Old Desktop - Mint Bea, using this as a file server experiment and so far it's working great. I was able to boot into Mint on my laptop and stream music off the old PC with out any stutters :P

I hope to be getting my hands on a 2nd laptop soon and that will be running nothing but Mint 8)

Now, a freshly Minted Bianca!

I followed the upgrade from the wiki, and it worked like a charm.

Thank you Clem for a very smooth upgrade path! :D

I am running Cassandra in one disk and Bianca KDE in another.
They are both beautiful.
Can't drop either one of them. I'm hooked! :)
