Re: Change Mint 4 to Mint 7 (I've got the ISO)

I've replied to this post 3 times but each time its been lost so I'll keep this brief. I followed all advice and posted results. When the post kept getting lost I loaded the Mint7 disk (from a new 4X burn - Fred). It wiped the hard drive so I had to buy a new XP (previous was pre-loaded). Re formatt...

Re: Change Mint 4 to Mint 7 (I've got the ISO)

hey dude - its me again :roll: I went into Daryna and booted into Gloria and inputted the sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda you suggested. I didn't put a number behind the sda. For both Daryna and Gloria I got exactly the same response (I don't know how to do a screenshot and attach). All the "sda" numbers had...

Re: Change Mint 4 to Mint 7 (I've got the ISO)

Hi Emorpp1 I don't have a problem with the grub which allows me to choose 3 Daryna boot options (standard/safe and something else which I've never really looked at) then allows me to boot XP under "other operating systems" (provided I hit it before the timer runs down). I did have a problem about 9 ...

Change Mint 4 to Mint 7 (I've got the ISO)

Hi all I'm new to linux and these might sound like really stupid questions but I've searched the forum and read the Linux Mint notes, but the actions to follow in the Linux Mint downloaded Manual don't match what happens on my computer (i.e. what options I'm given). My system is set up to dual boot ...

Re: learn terminal commands to load cinelerra

Hi emorrp1 thanks for the advice. I considered upgrading but had some bother with partitioning when I first set up a dual boot with Windows and didn't know whether an upgrade would just "slot into" the partitions I already have.

learn terminal commands to load cinelerra

Hi all I'm fairly new to Linux Mint. I have Mint 4 (Daryna) and dual boot it. However, since allowing the rest of the family access to XP I've decided to concentrate on Mint (I'm sick of 40, 000 emails from spammers every time I open XP email :roll: ) I've decided I'll concentrate on Linux :idea: I ...
