Re: Re: Live cd boot problemiī

Yeah, so have I (forgotten about it). I rarely have to use it, and it's been a long time, so I had to search a little. Looks like what you may want to try is VGA=771, but I'm not sure. Try it and see what happens, then maybe someone with more experience will come along and set us both straight. Tnx...

Re: Re: Live cd boot problemiī

I guess it could be a graphics driver issue, then. Probably should work with the VIA driver for integrated s3/unichrome graphics in Xorg.conf, but if not you may have to boot with just the VESA driver and see how that works. How to use vesa in livecd? I forgot already about that. What are the cheat...

Re: Re: Live cd boot problemiī

It sure is frustrating when you have trouble and no one seems to care. Is it not? I'm afraid I don't really understand what the problem is, but if I understand what you are saying, my first guess would be that your computer is overheating. Have you been having this problem for a while now? Or, is i...

Re: ISO booting and installation

You can run the live iso in VBox and use it to install Mint to your non-virtual HD. I check on this. By the way, do you know how to mount real hard drive in virtualbox? Update: From this post http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=103062 . There's a bug from the 32bit version w/c it will ...

Re: live cd wont boot

The system can boot on cd. In fact it will boot on windows xp, PE's and ubuntu hardy. I found out that it can boot hardy versions from ubuntu like gOS gadgets and mint 5.

I was just wondering if newer kernel won't boot on older pc, coz newer than hardy will not boot. Can somebody explain to why?

Yeah, i know. But most of the installed applications are for my kids. I believe that once you download the files (.deb) it is stored somewhere else. Is it possible to retrieve them and use it?
