Re: OpenSuse v Fedora

Fedora is a test bed for Red Hat and constantly has regressions and breakages . Well, now not really. Yes, really . It IS a test bed for Red Hat. That is well known. It DOES constantly have regressions and breakages. That's the price you pay for bleeding edge. I am not saying it is a bad distro, bu...

Re: Integrated ATI Radeon 4200 boned

I downloaded the driver from ATI.com and manually installed it.

I did not try and use the drivers built in to Mint/Ubuntu.

My question was phrased very badly. :lol:

Re: Integrated ATI Radeon 4200 boned

Did you install the proprietary drivers available in Linux Mint? Or, did you install the ATI Catalyst™ 10.11 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver? I installed the ATI Catalyst™ 10.11 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver for my ATI HD 5450 and have no problems, (well, except for the fact that it's a ...

Re: Grub Not Installed with Mint

Hi Pvtryan Mint 10 does NOT use Grub (now called grub legacy), it uses Grub2 (confusingly now called grub). :o Grub2 does NOT use menu.lst it uses grub.cfg Grub2 usually does not need to be edited by hand, and new entries are added automatically by running the command "sudo update-grub".

Re: How To Remove a Kernel

Just search Synaptic for "linux-image-2.6" and "linux-headers-2.6" and remove the offending one. :wink:

When you remove the kernel via Synaptic Package Manager, Grub2 is automatically
updated to reflect the changes.You will regain about 200mb of disk space.

Hi Inkit

Thanks for the screenshots and the tutorial. :D

I was clicking the panel further to the right and did not see those options. :wink:

Re: solved: upgrading: how to avoid losing bookmarks?

It says my /dev/loop0 ext4 partition has only 147 MiB free. I have no idea how to change this. The partition on which I installed Mint as 30 GB free. A device name of "/dev/loop0" indicates you installed Mint using mint4win. You should ask your question in that part of the forum, you will probably ...
