Re: Absolutely unable to install LMDE RC 2012

Inspired by the above, I decided to give x64 xfce a shot. Same issue with the hybrid iso, I think it must be a bios issue with this laptop. However, creating a stick with unetbootin, I was able to boot and install successfully... no hangups anywhere while copying the live image across. So I am using...

I was able to install via DVD on my dual-core desktop. No issues with the file copying stalling out.

Any ideas? I would love to have this on my laptop.

Thanks,

Bill

Absolutely unable to install LMDE RC 2012

Hi, I have been completely unable to install the x64 MAT/Cinnamon on my laptop. Here is what I tried: dd'ing the hybrid iso to 2 different usb keys... When I do this, the keys will not boot. If I examine them in the disk utility, I see the LMDE partition at the far end of the drive, but before it is...

There is a known bug where gnome shuts down the wireless before the CIFS are unmounted, and this causes a ...

Upgrade from LMDE 32 to 64bit with dedicated home partition

Hi, looking for a risk analysis for the following: I have LMDE (installed at 9, brought to 10 via updates) installed on a 64-bit capable machine. /home is on its own partition. I'm not sure if there are any risks or possible downsides to just installing LMDE 64bit on top of the 32bit partition and r...

System fonts no longer working in LMDE panels post Mint10

Hello, I run LMDE on a PC connected to a 37" HDTV. I run the desktop at 1920x1080 and typically set all fonts in Preference > Appearance to between 20 and 24 px to be legible from the sofa. After updating the other evening (to Mint10 menu, desktop, etc.) I find that the panels are not using the...
