Re: Linux Mint 14 "Nadia" RC released!

Unless I'm mistaken, simply applying any updates to RC would eventually get you to final. Someone will most assuredly correct me if I am wrong. I'm downloading Mint 14 Cinnamon RC now. I'll have to wait until I can get some DVD's tomorrow to burn and install. Really looking forward to running Mint a...

How To Get a pure CINNAMON LMDE desktop?

I ran accros this (regarding Mint 12): Remove MATE from Linux Mint 12

Does anyone know exactly what the process would be to completely eliminate MATE and retain a pure LMDE Cinnamon desktop?

Re: Separate LMDE Editions of Cinnamon/Mate?

Yes, I know. I just don't want to attempt in case anything is removed that may be necessary.

Bottom line, a pure MATE or pure Cinnamon desktop install will more than likely perform better than a merging of both into one distro.

I was just curious if this was being considered.

Separate LMDE Editions of Cinnamon/Mate?

Will there be Separate LMDE Editions of Cinnamon/Mate?

I really have no interest in MATE at all. I'd prefer to have a pure Cinnamon install of LMDE. Is this in the cards?

Re: Disk not found????

Yep. Definitely an EFI/UEFI problem. I had to convert my HDD from GPT to MBR partition table. I did this by using gParted in the LMDE live CD and deleted all partitions the changing the partition table from GPT to MSDOS. LMDE now installs without a hitch. Hopefully this issue can be resolved, though...

Re: Disk not found????

It's an EFI/UEFI issue for sure. Ubuntu seems to install grub in sda/3. Opening gParted in Ubuntu shows this as it denotes EFI Boot, while opening gParted in LMDE says nothing about EFI.

Re: Disk not found????

Here's the weird thing happening. Installing LMDE succeeds, but I get the "disk not found/failed" message. I then install Ubuntu alongsiside the LMDE install I cannot access. Once Ubuntu installs, the grub menu pops up and LMDE is listed. I am now dual-booting Ubuntu 12.04 and LMDE as this seems to ...

Re: Disk not found????

Grub was installed to /dev/sda/ - I triple checked :D Right now, I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed. But I will attempt another install of LMDE this weekend and do as you suggest. I'll post back a screenine of gParted from the live medium this weekend. Assuming I can get the live to boot after the wonky ...

Re: Disk not found????

The install completes as it should, I restart, remove disc, wait for reboot. I see the HP welcome screen (computer setup and BIOS/UEFI stuff) then it goes to a screen with DHCP.../ *It looks just like this image I found on the net: http://i46.tinypic.com/izuoop.jpg After that screen (about 30 second...

Re: Disk not found????

I have two 32 bit and two 64 bit ISOs. Each 32 and 64 were downloaded from a different US server. Burned to DVD at the slowest speed. Midsum5 check to see if the download was good. Live DVD of all 4 DVDs work fine. Though I had a horrible time just getting the live DVD to load. See here As far as th...

Disk not found????

Trying to install LMDE has become an insane chore. I finally got the live DVD to boot. Now, after a seemingly successful install, I go to reboot. I get an error message "disk not found or has failed." As I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on the same disk, it is not a disk error. Why can't i install. I t...

Re: Live DVD will not boot...

Seems I've stumbled upon an all-to-easy way to boot. Found a couple of references on a couple of obscure forums about the same issue I was having. A poster on each said that on newer computers (mine is about 4 months old) in some cases F12 must be pressed at the setup screen just before the computer...

Re: BIOS Boot Question

Are they wireless mouse & keyboard by chance? I had this issue with Debian. Had to use a wired keyboard and mouse to get through the install.

Nope. I don't think that's it. The Live CD/DVD of Linux Mint 12, Ubuntu 12.04, Chakra, Sabayon and Fedora 16 all load fine. I only have issues with LMDE.

Re: Live DVD will not boot...

There is obviously something wrong with these ISOs. I downloaded three (yes, 3) ISOs each of 64 and 32 bit LMDE Mate-Cinnamon from three different servers. All six ISOs have the same issue booting (as described in post #1) on either DVD of flash drive. It's not my computer as I have half a dozen oth...

Excellent. I'll get a flash drive this weekend and give it a shot. I'll post back the results.

Thanks.

Re: Live DVD will not boot...

I've never looked into that. I guess I'm old-school with DVD's. Is there a tutorial on how to do a bootable flash drive?

Re: Live DVD will not boot...

I guess I'll just have to live without LMDE for the time being. I've downloaded another ISO and tried again with the same result.
