my first go at anything linux, just put mint on an old laptop and everything is just a bit slow.
the laptop is a thinkpad 600x, p3 coppermine....maybe a 500mhz cpu i think, 300 odd mb too. mint has been brilliant so far, easy install, wifi thru pcmcia card worked straight off
it feels like in windowsxp when the default gfx card driver is installed, windows take an age to update and sometimes appear in stages.
anyone have any tricks to speed things up? can i make things less pretty?
is there a way i can find out if the gfx card has proper drivers?
