Re: Linux Mint 7 x64 RC1 released!

I mentioned the update tool, because I used it on my 32bit laptop to do the upgrade and it worked well. I was just curious if they had something similar for 64bit.

Re: Linux Mint 7 x64 RC1 released!

Is there an upgrade utility to do the upgrade from 6 x64 to 7 x64 like the 32 bit has?

Re: Cpu AMD64 3200+ (core Venice) only beating at 1 Ghz.

I use the CPU Frequency monitor applet on the gnome panel to manage that.

Re: USB Overcurrent detected, now computer won't boot

Fixed. In case this happens to anyone else, this was my cure:

Pulled out the battery to clear the CMOS.

Flashed the Bios.


Zip! Up and running again! :D

When restarting my computer I got this message: USB overcurrent detected, will shut down in 15 seconds. Computer shut down, I unplugged all USB devices, now computer won't turn on or boot. The led on the moboard is on, so I'm getting power there. The Moboard is an Asus M3N78 pro, I'm running Felicia...

TV tuner card issue.

Did a search, and couldn't find this exact issue. I have a Leadtek Winfast2000 XP card that I've used before in Mint without problems. I just put together a new system, and put Felicia 64x on the system. I plugged the TV card into the CD spot on the moboard: (like I always did with this card) No sou...

Random Computer shutdown

Once in awhile, my system will completely shut off.

The last thing in syslog is:

GConf server is not in use, shutting down.

What could be wrong??

Yes, I have configured MPlayer. This issue happens also when using formats that require sound that don't use mplayer, like flash when I'm watching youtube or google video.

The sound problems only happen in the browser, the rest of the system is fine, sound wise.

Wierd browser sound issue

Ok, what happens is, sometimes I'll go to watch a youtube vid, or some other media online. There will be no sound, until I kill the browser and restart it. Sound works for a little bit, then quits again, until I kill the browser.

Does this with both Firefox and Opera.

I admit I'm leaning toward Mint.
I'd go for Mint if you are doing a HD install, or Puppy for live CD usage.

I've had both the xfce and kde versions of mint on my 6 year old laptop. The kde version was sluggish compared to the xfce edition. I haven't compared it the gnome version on the same laptop, but I'd imagine that the performance falls somewhere in between. Why so complicated? You could install one ...

XFCE should be "snappier", esp if you have an older machine.

I found puppy to be pretty speedy. I use it for a recovery cd mostly. The nice thing about it, is that you can pull the cd out after you boot. On a 600 pentium, with 756 megs ram, and a swap file (I forget how big) it was running fine. For a HD install, I'd recommend a Mint/Ubuntu installation howev...

If you insist upon running a live CD without a hard drive install, I'd suggest Puppy Linux.
