Re: Nouveau video "streaking" problem

I'm having similar problem with Linux Mint 14 KDE. Rendering is fine for a time but eventually the screen image is corrupted in a couple of ways. Either I'll get vertical bands of colored horizontal stripes or vertical lines that look like sand or dirt on each side of the cursor or down the side of ...

Re: Linux Mint Developer - Remastersys

Thanks, twa. It worked! :D Here are the steps: 1. You should install squashfs-modules for your kernel and either aufs-modules or unionfs-modules before you install remastersys. http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/debian.html 2. Rebooted. 3.

Re: Linux Mint Developer - Remastersys

CD/DVD won't mount [SOLVED]

Recently, I installed the latest “Linux Mint Debian Edition”. Like it a lot and plan to keep it. There was a problem, however, with automounting and even mounting CDs and DVDs. I would slide in a CD or DVD, blank or otherwise, but the OS would not open it. I used the command line, changed /etc/fstab...
