Very embarrasing error. Due to me knew too little.
I have an old USB external HDD 7GB left free on a 10GB 5300 RM orsomething noisy one.
ok I installed SuperOS Ubuntu on it with persistent 1GB casper RW file.
When I later tried to do the same with Mint KDE then it looked in that file and said error and asked for my username.
Me still thinking the text came from Mint gave mint and mintkde and admin and a lot of things but didn't realize that now the error handling think it is on Ubuntu and not Mint so the correct user name for a live cd is ubuntu and not mint.
so as soon me gave ubuntu and then hit enter it allowed me in and I am writing from mint KDE CE now. So now I will test it
and use this one instead of the SuperUbuntu I guess. Most likely.
Thanks guys for being patient with me. I had hoped someone could guess what did happen but realize that my set up is rather unique using the persistent install on usb from pendrivelinux and all of you love full install I guess.
Or else you could have told me to use the ubuntu username.
anyway thanks indeed for the Mind KDE CE the best there ever was among the 45 distros me tested 2009 and 2010.
Yes I know the Mint9 is out and I have old Helena. Hm
I've read that standard Helena have mint and psw just hit enter but that doesn't seems to work on the one I downloaded today.
I've tested several others like mint mint or linux mint everything fails.
Does it only ask this kind of questions when the booting has an error?
In the menu.lst should it not be seed=mint should it be kde or something?
I boot from a USB and used pendrivelinux version.
