Re: system freezes when running software manager

How Can I Install Broadcom Drivers Without Internet?(Solved)

I'm running Windows right now and I want to install Linux Mint KDE but doing so without an internet connection. So I'd like to get my wireless up and running without using ndiswrapper and without compiling the driver. I know my wireless uses the latest BCM43XX driver. Thanks

Hello Again

I'm back after a lengthy hiatus from Linux/Mint. Now that I got my hybrid ATI graphics to work I'll be settling in with Mint. I'm glad to see Mint is just as good as ever. :)

Re: Better than Mint?

I tried Pinguy some months back and I was pretty impressed, although it's not really my cup of tea.

IMO Mint is still the best overall distro.

Re: Very goo Mint 10 review

Good review, and it doesn't even mention my favorite feature, virtualbox-nonfree added to the repo.

As impressed as I was with LMDE, I'm even more impressed with Julia.

Re: CD won't auto-mount Mint

Sounds like the exact same problem I had with Mint 9 / Ubuntu 10.04

This fix worked for me

FYI I don't have this problem in Mint 10 / Ubuntu 10.10
