Re: Image ghosting?

I had the same thing happen. Bugged me for a month or so. It would usually happen when I moved the monitor and other times at random. I checked all the cables, input voltage etc. I narrowed it down to the monitor even though it was less than a year old. As I was removing the monitor, I found a USB c...

Re: How Odious the Deception

..... I just feel sick to my stomach that all of the Debian developers hard work has been basically just flat out ripped off by people who want to market their own Debian versions. But. maybe they are saints and it doesn't bother them the way their work gets used or maybe they just feel like all of...

Re: Had a little scare

Learning is great, but remembering is a PITA. If you don't already, I would advise keeping a Linux logbook. I use a simple spiral notebook myself. Anytime I tinker, I write down what I did, and the effect on the system (so I can backtrack my steps, if possible, or maybe I don't want that feature now...

Re: What happens when Squeeze is released?

@xidcat: You can do it more than one way, but changing the repositories to Squeeze now is the way I would do it. If you change to Stable now, you'll be pointing to Lenny, and that could cause you some problems in the short term. Changing from Stable to Squeeze will keep the same repositories for th...

Re: What happens when Squeeze is released?

It depends on whether you've made any changes to sources.list. If it still uses Testing, then you don't need to make any changes, Testing will still be Testing, whatever the name. If you've changed Testing to Squeeze, then you need to change it back if you want to continue using Testing. It comes o...

What happens when Squeeze is released? [Solved]

On a stock install Debian testing is in LMDE's repos. When Squeeze is released, it becomes stable and Wheezy becomes testing. When and what changes need to be made to the repos in LMDE?

Re: LMDE and Nvidia Drivers

Same procedure worked for me back in September, so my driver was not quite as new. I haven't upgraded since. You're probably not missing much, I went back through the change logs, most of the upgrades are adding new hardware or unscrewing previous "fixes". I have no plans to upgrade mine either. Le...

LMDE and Nvidia Drivers

After a year of Win7 (starting freezing constantly), I went back to LM10. I hate the reinstalls for new versions though (that drove me back to Windows). Finally, I wrote LMDE over my Windows partitions, and the only problem I had were the nouveau drivers. All my windows rolled over the right edge of...

Re: why is compiz so dang unstable??

I am having this same problem too. Here's my inxi -F: X just shuts down and kicks me back to the login screen unexpectedly. I don't think it's compiz. It usually happens when I submit something (like a form) or press enter. I think your right, I don't think it is Compiz or the graphics card, I have...

LM9-Firefox/Java CPU utilization

I installed the beta, added Java, wound up with 100% CPU utilization until I shut down Firefox (Java is the culprit). Chalked it up to beta + me installing Java myself. Installed the amd64 DVD release, same problem. Is this happening to anybody else? Does it happen on the 32 bit also? Trying to figu...

Re: FIREWALLS FOR LINUX MINT

First, I too take offense... Fred is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, to say otherwise shows a lack of respect. Enough on that. Back to the OP... The point is that there is no firewall for Linux. There is iptables which is port control embedded in the kernel. To effectively control ports, you ne...

Re: Wearing shoes in yours/others house

I'm in America. When I was a kid, never took our shoes off in the house unless they were muddy, or in the winter, they were cold weather boots. My wife is Thai, so we go the Asian way, shoes off at the door please. Most of our friends are Asian or, like us, interracially married, so the same goes at...

Re: update

Level 1 and 2 updates have been tested by the Mint dev team and are safe. Level 3 updates have not been tested and are believed to be safe... Generally, Level 1 and 2 are Mint specific updates and Level 3s are upstream updates (Ubuntu or Debian). I know some folks turn off Level 3 updates, but I (an...

Re: I think PAE kernel just broke my system.

Actually the thread title is wrong... you broke your system, not the pae-kernel. :lol: When you installed the the pae-kernel, you effectively replaced the kernel. The NVIDIA module which hung on the original went bye bye with it. But you know that now don't you? :wink: Nice recovery... :D

Any Mint, Main edition, 64 bit, KDE, whatever, is easy to use and rock solid. The difference between the forums is probably down to user base. I took a quick trip to the new Mint Community site http://community.linuxmint.com/ for some (very) unscientific research. The Top Editions lists 1256 people,...
