Gone and 'done it'

Postby allypink on Mon Dec 10, 2012 6:07 am

Hello all
Been a user and donor to Mint for some time now. Been using 10 since it first arrived (came over from Suse)and have been really happy with it.
Ran 14 RC on an old 80g for a few weeks and could not fault it. Cinnamon is just about there. Couple of more bits and pieces and it will be a well populated as gnome 2.
Been looking for the 'next Mint 10' and I think I've found it.
Today went out and bought myself a new 500g hd ....... bit the bullet and installed 14 with cinnamon. Well done team.
With the aid of clonezilla my trusty WD 1tb USB drive, cloned the 80g to the new 500g WD, 'blew' up the home partition and all done. Mint even handled the drive reconfiguration it's self. Never had to touch the fstab file at all....... hey go figure!
Good solid distro. Running on Nouveau, as for some reason when I installed the nvidia driver we get the 'herky-jerkys' (tried current and even tried some older ones). Reverted back to the Nouveau driver. It runs really well and has matured nicely. Seeing as I don't play games, don't reckon I will miss the propriety driver.
Got three drives now 500g with 14, 250g with 10 and Win 7 on another 250g (need it for work; a software platform). Multi-boot menu so I can go with either or.
Highly recommend it team....... go for it. Looks like another donation coming to the Mint team.
Hey remember, if you find it useful put you hand in your pocket! Ain't no such thing as FREE!

Hello allypink,
Think you'll find if you install Nvidia Current update it will work for you. did for me. But then if your doing everything you need to why bother.
Cheers!

Thanks Dave
Yeh tried Current (tested) and the two others listed in sources to no avail. As I said I'm happy with noveau. It really works quiet well.
