Re: Linux Mint Debian 201204 released!

I installed LMDE 201204-mate-cinnamon-32bit-rc.iso on 18 Apr 2012 and have applied updates through the update manager. Is my installation the same as the LMDE 201204-mate-cinnamon-dvd-32bit.iso released 24 Apr 2012? Thanks.

I am enjoying LMDE very much!

Re: LMDE & nvidia 96.x.x

LMDE took over 6 hours to install. I then found, after using synaptic to install my video driver nvidia 96, that there was intolerable flicker. I have searched the forums and can not find an answer to the problem with nvidia 96. Reluctantly I must return to LM 10 or Ubuntu 10.04.

I am not sure where to enter Enter. Whether I let DVD go into regular or compatability mode, nothing changes. If I hit Tab and then type continue, the result is the same...cannot get to desktop to install
