Re: Live-cd install inside KVM. Virtio disk. Bugfix reported

That's pretty amazing this problem still exists, considering I helped patch inxi for virtio over a year and a half ago, and all someone had to do was run an inxi -U from the live environment before spinning the ISO.

Re: LMDE SpinX3 Wishlist

Let's clear up some things here. We want to be able to fix things that are already out there and target a lot of wishlist items. I am actively working on bugs and assigning them around, along with starting to prototype some new applications. Others are actively working on creating new features and f...

Re: LMDE 201012 Fails Starting Live Session

Perhaps someone would like to try my fix? I'm telling you, it worked for me, and that was what got that guy up and running, much to my discredit. I'm strongly hoping that the majority of you who can't boot will be solved if you read what I posted.

@brobdinag

Your keyboard goes dead at the GRUB menu? That shouldn't happen. If you can press keys to stop the countdown, you should be able to tab and pass on the nomodeset option.

Re: Black screen in lmde on nvidia cards , how to fix.

I posted this in another thread. I was able to test this successfully on an nvidia card. Boot up using nomodeset as a boot option and in compatibility mode. Please test and get back to me. I had massive address errors in nouveau when booting up which was tainting the kernel. Gazza I'm guessing this ...

Re: LMDE 201012 Fails Starting Live Session

Hi all I am feverishly working on something for this. Please try running your bootup in compatibility mode and pass nomodeset as a boot option. I had crashes in Nouveau which were bypassed using these options. The driver was getting address errors and rendering the kernel as tainted. If you don't do...

Re: installing Chromium or Google Chrome

I have a short script I'll be pushing (once proper error checking is complete) for download of Chromium through Debian Sid repos and install (geared towards LMDE).

Stay tuned, hopefully.

Re: Mint Debian

Analogy approved.

Not a good idea, you'd have breakage about on those lines by just flipping the switches to change distro.

Re: Mint Debian

@Randomizer - that Virtualbox issue is something being looked at. You can make partitions manually using fdisk or gparted and refresh the installer. They will be detected.

Kinda a pain as a workaround, but yes - known bug and being worked on.

Re: Mint Debian

That was the culprit on line 442 of the pastebin. Replacing commands.getoutput with os.system fixed the issue, I did not get a hangup during APT cleanup, installer exited successfully. Upon reboot, the system logged in normally and was able to perform a sudo apt-get update without generating any dpk...

Re: Mint Debian

It is what worked for me - system appears to be fully operational so far.

Kill the installer when it freezes up and reboot the system.
Log in normally and open up a terminal.
Run sudo dpkg --configure -a
This should fix the issue with the live-installer and the cleaning APT bug.

I'm using Fluxbox CE 8 RC1 with xcompmgr for some eye candy and a Conky scheme I completely ripped off from ikey and justin. Glad you think it's worth ripping from us mate :D Undoubtedly there will probably be stuff we will be borrowing from you as well. P.S. This would be justin, just in case you ...
