I hope that this is the correct section to post this.
I run Mint13 Mate as my main distro. No problems whatever and am delighted with it.
Over the past days, I have been trying the live DVD's of Mint15. Disaster.
Mint15 Mate: OK if the first thing I do is to load the Nvidia304 driver. If I try to run anything else first, it crashes with the screen filled with "hash".
Mint15 Cinnemon: Crashes as soon as it has finished loading with the hash desktop again.
Mint15XFCE RC: Crashes as soon as it has finished loading.
Mint15KDE RC: Loads OK. Crashes if I try to run anything. Driver Manager won't run and install a proprietary driver, but it's the only thing which doesn't cause a crash.
Continuing my investigations, I have run the live CD's of the new versions of several other distros, with no problems.
It looks as though I will have to wait for the next MintLTS and see if that is any different.
Sorry if this sounds like a moan, but I am very disappointed with Mint15.
