Re: Recovery console is useless - Nadia

So I upgraded the kernel to Linux 3.5.0-27-generic (i686) and the recovery console for that kernel works fine. The other is still useless.

Recovery console is useless - Nadia

I am having an issue with the recovery console. I load it up and try to get networking running. But it freezes on the cleaning part. I let it run for over an hour and it's still locked on cleaning. ctrl+alt-delete does nothing. I have to hold the power button in to shut system down. I then reload up...

Re: Cinnamon panel edit mode - Mint 13

It worked great. I now have my panel set at 32. Much better for me. last year I was pronounced legally blind, so I need things bigger than I used to. My glasses help, but not when things are really tiny. Thank you again Brahim.

Cinnamon panel edit mode - Mint 13

Well, I have never really played with Cinnamon, so i am lost here. I would like to make the panel slightly larger. So what do I need to do to accomplish this? A step by step would be awesome.

Thanx

Re: Mint 12 Installer freezing?

Patience? I'm at the end of that now. LMAO! But, anyways, the only distro that loads up fine right now is 10.04. Not even the 10.04.4 will load. I could go that route for now.

Re: Mint 12 Installer freezing?

I did finally get the LiveDVD to load for me. Had to mark noacpi, nomodeset and one other, can't remember. But even doing that, the installer freezes. Left it going all night and when I got up this morning at 0400, it was still stuck. I did a hard shutdown and I just reinstalled Win7 and here I am. ...

Re: Mint 12 Installer freezing?

Ok, I found my issue and other ppl's issue with getting these newer images to load. It's the new Debian kernel. Not exactly sure what in the kernel is causing the problem. But older kernels work better, at least on AMD systems.

I'm thinking it could be the new UEFI bios. But am not totally sure.

Re: Mint 12 Installer freezing?

Figured out the issue, I think. I had to go into bios and disable USB 3.0. I don’t need it anyways. Don’t have any 3.0 devices. Now every thing seems fine. LMDE loaded up fine. Tried loading up Ubuntu 12.04 but it only loads to a blinking cursor. I still do not understand confused is going on though...

Mint 12 Installer freezing?

Ok, well I decided to install Mint 12 anyways, even though I didn’t want a *buntu based distro. I have been sitting on the LiveDVD for about 50mins now, waiting for it to install and the installer seems stuck. Is this a normal time span for installing Mint 12? Installer stays at Configuring Target S...

Re: Is there any place that still sells desktops with Mint?

Thanx Albert, I have already tried that. With the no unix found error on the LiveDVD, it's goin to be hard. I have tried a few distros already just to see: The x86 releases have major issues. Has to be the fact that each mem slot is running 4gigs. But am not sure. Ubuntu 10.04.4 x64 has 0 issues. 12...

I am now running Win7, because I am having issues getting Mint or any distro loaded on it. I can load out of date distros with...

Re: Is there any place that still sells desktops with Mint?

I have that covered. Already burned my DVD, so once the system is built I'll install it.
