Re: Why not base LMDE on Devuan?

systemd? Well, I'm not sure anymore. I thought LMDE2 was SystemV equipped. I had to double check what you were referring to. LMDE 2 is sysvinit.

Re: OUT of range display

in the terminal type sudo xrandr and if you have like 1024x768 listed than type sudo xrandr -s 1024x768. it might now be 1024x768, but use the 1024x whatever. then reboot and let us know what happens.

Re: Repo's

You can change testing to stable on the debian repos BUT you will NOT get any kind of updates til Squeeze drops to stable. If you'd rather, change testing to Squeeze. You'll still get all updates and you'll drop to stable when it happens.

Linux Mint is Clem's "child". If he wanted it named something else he would have done so.

Re: Debian Testing

Sid is always the name of unstable. Sid will stay "stable" IF you never use apt-get dist-upgrade.
