Re: ffmpeg application is missing in main menu

Runtime error 203 at $00000000004A7C96
$00000000004A7C96

{SOLVED} Mint 8 KDE64 - External Drive Boot Issue

I cannot make my external USB hard drive boot with Mint 8 KDE64. Until recently I had Mandriva 64 on the USB drive and had no problems booting from it when it was plugged into my laptop (running Windows 7 Ultimate). I decided to switch back to Mint so I downloaded the KDE63 ISO, burned a boot CD, an...

Try This

I also upgraded to 7.04 and my Mint wilted. I recovered by replacing the xorg.conf file (in /etc/X11) with a backup. I then power-cycled my computer and everything seems to be running. I did receive another large batch of updates after my "fix". I have not tried Envy as my display looks to...

I then installed PCLinuxOS and there was an option at boot to run a memory test. So for grins I ran the ...

Boo - Thanks for your reply...

A bit more research on this site says that this issue is also confirmed for 2.6.17. My guess is that it wouldn't be a big deal if this issue didn't make the log files grow so large.
