The best news (after the victory of Portugal in Euro 2008 ;) )
Thanks Clem and all the team by your hard work ... I think Elyssa will be the best distro in 2008.
Congratulations

Looks awesome. I have it installed now on an HP dv6775 and everything - even the little built-in webcam - worked right out of the box. Very slick operations. Thanks everyone.

If I install the initial set of updates, it borks my X config with the proprietary nvidia drivers. Doesn't seem to matter how I install them, I tried envy, the restricted drivers manager, and doing it manually. If I do it manually, it does install and I can bring startx up as normal via the command line using the nvidia drivers. After a reboot though, it pukes, and tells me there is no valid configuration. If I use the config tool that pops up on failure, it won't start the nvidia drivers, even if i manually choose them.

I just did a fresh reinstall, without the updates, and everything appears to be running as it should be (well, as it ran during the betas. Still have to set a decent resolution via 'sudo nvidia-settings', but it's done that since the first beta.)

There is an error in the update instructions: "tansmission-common" instead of "transmission-common"

Good work, thanx!

Well done and congrats on what is another milestone for the Linux Mint team. I had the betas on a HP dv2125 laptop. Broadcom worked with WPA out of the box. WEP a little issues. I can not wait to try out the final. I have been using Mint since 4 came out and I can say I love Linux Mint. Well Done!

I am still running Daryna and I have a separate / and /home partitions. Can I install without formatting the /home partition or will it cause problems?

That should be fine. At worst, you may have to delete a config directory for a certain application in your home directory, but by and large there should be no issues.

Whats the best way to install Elyssa without loosing my apps/documents/music etc?

I am using Daryna currently.

Or is this only possible with the 'upgrade path' but it sounds like thats not a very good way to go
