Don't know if it's mentioned before but... Keep in mind that the sources list is pointing at Incoming and not Latest in this RC release.

Make sure to change that. :wink:

I've got issues during boot of the livecd, please see this topic for more details: [url]viewtopic.php?f=189&t=99606[/url]

201204 RC & Mate look good on my mini itx machine, now to have it boot to my main system would be great!

Hi

End of report

Just one thing more to add to my previous report on a fresh LMDE64 install on a Toshiba L750-T10N.

I did not find the way to open a session automatically (without any password and stop at mid-way). I read gdm3 should be accountable for it but he refused to start. On the other hand, I am happy not to have to give any password when I take the computer out of sleep. I had this behaviour en LM12 and I did not stay long enough to get rid of it. If somebody knows how to start a session automatically, I'll be keen to learn. We could do it years ago, yes...

I found the hidden solution here and it works: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/605 :D

To conclude a good solid release. I would have like more info or advice on how to setup wine (and obtain a wine menu) and about DKMS niceties and VirtualBox since these two things are a bit different from the main edition.

Driver for WIFI D-Link question ?

LMDE RC installs fine on my Acer Notebook,
but I cannot find a search menu for a driver for my WIFI D-Link router.

Previoiusly on LM 12 the "available drivers" menu locates my driver with no problem.

about the sources.list edit to be fixed in next update pack 5(mentioned on the Mint Blog under known problems):

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/multimedia testing main non-free

is my sources.list file under /etc/apt

how should it look and/or do I just change the words incoming to latest?

Correct - simply edit the file replacing all instances of 'incoming' with 'latest', then run apt-get update

You're reading it wrong... It will be fixed in the stable release of LMDE 2012.04 not with the UP5.

So indeed.... you must fix the sources.list yourself by replacing incoming with latest as kiirokurisu said. Or... replace all the line with this by copying and pasting it:

Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free

Just try it and there is a graphical bug on cinnamon menu in shape of white interrupted line in search menu domain, sometimes it shows in that shape, sometimes whole set of icons get white?? ati driver maybe? same thing on mint 12 cinnamon... Hopeing to be fixed soon.. Using ATI radeon 4850.. i really like cinnamon and i just want to everything works nice and smooth without graphic corruptions. I dont use Proprietary drivers just the ones default cause they are working much faster.

yes, just make sure you check and correct (if you want) the sources.list: in this rc they are pointing at incoming, probably you'll want to point at latest.

Great, thanks. I installed the rc version because the current iso wouldn't boot for me on a compaq laptop.

i hope this isn't clearly explained and is not exactly what it's there written, because otherwise you'll need some serious reading about linux and the several distros.

about your other question, wine doesn't exist in the debian repos, so doesn't exist as well in the lmde repos, but you can search these forum for several topics howto add wine to your install.

Using Mate the Awn applet Quit-Log Out does not work. It works fine with Cinnamon.

Is there an approximate timetable or release date for the "final" iso releases of this version of LMDE? Thanks.

Thanks for the replies and copy of sources.list! Very easy and after I switched and ran dist-upgrade i got a cool [debian-system-adjustments] file:)
Thanks again for the Help.
Have a Good week Gentlemen.

Been using the 32 bit RC for a few days now. Only real bug I've come across is that Xiphos will install but crashes every time you launch it, not sure if that is a Mint or Xiphos problem, otherwise this OS release is very solid. Did a full install to a 16 gig usb stick without issues, also installed it to a netbook without issues.
Edit/Update: I should say with the Gnome spin I had no problems besides the Xiphos thing. Yesterday I tried installing the Xfce spin and it would not go beyond about 30% of the install, this was the 32 bit version.

Looks like Clem has approved the final ISOs, see the first four items at http://community.linuxmint.com/iso
Note that there are still some bugs left, don't forget to read the comments for each entry. :)

I just want to say that I've been using Linux Mint Debian now for a few months and I'm happy with the progress being made. I still have some problems using Gnome 3 (can only get Nautilus up and running from the command line, not from the menu), but right now I'm using Mate and it's very responsive and working more than satisfactorily, and of course Nautilus works fine using either Mate or Cinnamon.
