Re: Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" Cinnamon is out!

In this thread on Qiana Mate RC , which has since been locked, several of us were wondering how to deal with the Level 5 Security Updates. The Update Manager says Level 5 updates are dangerous packages that can effect stability, but on the other hand, they are Security updates. I don't know whether...

Re: Trying to install k9copy

I hope this isn't considered hijacking, but I updated my LMDE with the Debian repositories before I read that I should wait until upgrade pack 3 comes out. This made it difficult to install k9copy when I pointed my repositories to LMDE. I solved this by temporarily pointing my security and multimedi...

Re: recent update about boot dependencies???

The culprit is: sysv-rc and three other packages "This package provides support for the System-V like system for booting, changing runlevels, and shutting down, configured through symbolic links in /etc/rc?.d/." I haven't heard any reviews of this at all, but I haven't actively been searching for it...

Re: Desktop won't start on Helena LiveCD/DVD

Well, here's something rather odd - I never thought that changing my old monitor - a ViewSonic PF790 Color Monitor (CRT) - with a new NEC MultiSync EA231WMi monitor (LCD) would get rid of the flashing, no loading X problem, but it has! :? Now Helena boots on my old Dell as well... go figure... My sy...

Re: grub drive confusion

Are you able to control which drive boots up with the computer bios or a bootup menu (my Dell has this feature)? I do this because I get a Grub loading Error 2 message if I don't. It's a hassle but it works for me (maybe I'll post for help later - I almost ruined my NTFS filesystem trying to fix Gru...

Re: Not including multimedia codecs by default in Mint8

what about the possibility of a "multimedia" edition which would be made in the same way as the current main release (i.e. simple renaming). And the "main" release which would install extra software goodies in place of the codecs, but have an easy-install option in the menu (and similarly for the m...
