Do you know what day the E17 is suppose to hit the repositories? What will I need to do to install that desktop? Currently I am running the gnome platform but this old laptop has a hard time keeping up and sometimes freezes for a second or five.
What do you exactly mean? You can install E17 using this link on any distro - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php? ... hlight=e17
If you are talking about the Linux Mint E17 distro, that will be coming out January 2008.
If anybody has any questions or recommendations for the Linux Mint E17 distro use this blog - http://linuxminte17.wordpress.com/
