Re: Mint 11 hangs on requirements screen

Truthfully the reason the swap is that big is that was the left over space after I divided the device up in as many partitions as possible. I realize it don't need it and I have never seen more then a couple of mg in it. But are you serious about the size making it fail?

Fix freezes due to reformatted SWAP /tmp

I am relatively new to linux and at last I think I have something to contribute. IN the current builds 'Natty' based, I have been plagued with freezing, I ran accross the 'gtk-window-decorator --replace' fix which did help in some instances. I also ran across a post for this error, https://answers.l...
