Re: high pitched noise output from sound card since upgrade to 18.1

actually i also had to apply #65 from that thread. only the combination of the two keeps it away after a restart. I found that setting the Module-options power_save=0 and power_save_controller=N in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf get's overwritten in Natty in the file: /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/intel...

Re: Considerations before you install

great guide. thanks. should have read this long time ago ;) i'd like to add that a lot of configuration files go into /etc not only /home. i've read that you can't create /etc (and /bin, /lib) as a separate partition, because it might be needed during boot, before other partitions than / can be acce...

Re: Linux Mint 7 KDE RC1 Bug Thread

Hi, No offence but i think you should try a good Mint KDE CE 7 RC1 Gloria install DVD for installing the system on hard drive. Yours is a bad one. Some files in it (DVD) are corrupted. Everything you wrote here is not true. It`s my opinion. that was my first thought as well. but i always let braser...

Re: mintUpdate doesn't give me updates from the repos i add

You also have to check the "Visible" box, under 'Edit/Preferences/Levels' for the 4's and 5's. I had to check both visible AND safe, restart mintUpdate, then go back in and uncheck 'Safe". Then all the updates showed up, and stayed 'Unchecked' allowing me to choose which to update. regards, Richard...

Re: mintUpdate doesn't give me updates from the repos i add

thanks for your answer emorrp1 These are just my best guesses: 1) I've found that because of mint's /etc/apt/preferences, I've had to "Force Version" in synaptic before updates (like dev version of mintUpload) would come through from ppa (though I now just have another entry in the preferences), per...
