Re: does mint 10 64 support native disktrim?

If you aren't sure which kernel you have, try typing uname -a From a Terminal window I just installed the latest Mint Debian AMD64 today, and I was a bit dissappointed that it came with 2.6.32-5 instead of 2.6.33. I read some older kernels have been 'backported' to support TRIM, but I'm not sure if ...

Re: SMART error messages with SSD hard drives

Hey, I answered my own question. My SSD drive had version 1.1 firmware. I updated the firmware to 1.28 and the SMART error messages went away. The drive works great now with Mint Debian and no more SMART errors. The only problem was the OCZ firmware had to be installed when you are booted from a sep...

Linux Mint LXDE 64 bit?

Any chance of a Linux Mint LXDE 64 bit version? This would be perfect for a Virtualbox workstation.

Re: where to put swap

I have the best luck when I put / in one partition and swap in another partition on the same drive. When I spread my data to more than one drive, it just slows the system down. I don't use a separate /home partition. Everything on a single / partition works best for me. I'm using a 90gb OCZ Agility ...

Re: does mint 10 64 support native disktrim?

Linux Mint 9 runs 2.6.32, so I assume it doesn't support Trim. That's why I just upgraded to Linux Mint 10. Kernet 2.6.33 or higher is supposed to support Trim. Linux Mint 10 has 2.6.35. I guess it works. I can't really tell any difference. I think Trim only works with the Ext4 filesystem. Trim may ...

SMART error messages with SSD hard drives

Does anybody else get SMART errors using SSD drives with the Sandforce controller? It happens when I use the OCZ Vertex 2 and Agility 2 SSD drives with the Sandforce controller. Linux Mint Debian reports these error messages. The Gnome standard version of Linux Mint does not. Just about every other ...

Re: Unable to connect to wireless internet

I've had problems going wireless with almost EVERY version of Linux on almost EVERY laptop. The first time I tried it, I had an older Dell laptop with a Broadcom wireless adapter. I tried installing Fedora. I remember downloading and running something called 'fwcutter' that got it to work. That was ...
