Re: How about a Linux Mint BSD with Debian kFreeBSD kernel?

Cant see what the advantage would be and more than likely some technical probs and/or more than a few disadvantages to bothering with a bsd kernel . Not to mention kind of hard to call it linux w/o the linux kernel . Linux is named after that kernel. Though purists I'm sure insist on calling it gnu...

Re: Live distro with Wine installed

There's no need to prefer apt-get over yum. Yum requests a package from the repository while apt-get has to update its offline package cache with the 'update' command. I have found the yum solution to work some faster, as you only get the repository info you need and not the complete list of 30000 ...

Re: Compositing...

Disable compiz first before you enable gnome-compositing from desktop setting.
Try use compiz check to see if your machine capable of it.
Install fusion-icon, and run it. From fusion icon, you can switch compiz to metacity and vice versa more easily.

Re: Chrome freaking - breaking after update

How does one revert? (I mean all my instincts about reverting are bassackwards Windows based, and useless) open synaptic, highlight google-chrome, hit ctrl+e. It's basically force-version, meaning to say you say to the system, install and use certain version (that you said was ok) instead of the ne...

Re: gnome 3 upgrade

I'd probably have to recommend to anyone curious about Gnome 3 to try one of the Live CDs available from the web site before deciding to try and update your system. I did, and I can honestly say it took me all of about 10 minutes to decide I hated it, and I'm *really* glad I didn't put a ton of eff...
