im running mint 13 cinn. now and its working great. i installed it when it came out with no problems. thats why i thought 14 cinn. would install with no problems but it didnt. and nether did the mate version. on this computer i have ubuntu,xubuntu,edubuntu, kubuntu 12.04 Lts,fuduntu,opensuse,fedora17,bodhi,mephis 11,watt 12.04 or 01,trisquel,salax,peppermint 3,gnewsence. sorry ive been playing with alot of distros. only thing i was wondering if it could be the differance in the cinn.version. now the other thing i thought about was doing the back porting thing with the mint 13 but didnt know how well that would go. and by the way all of these distros are 32 bit. sorry had to add this on when i got the video issue was after i started the install. it got past the part of telling me that i needed atleast 5 gig of hard drive and connection to the internet then as soon as it was changing to the next screen thats when it went all haywire. but i was running them in live mode just fine and everything was working. no problems with the video. so i cant figure it out yet but hope too.
