Good luck to you.

I was only trying to Run Kubuntu Hardy or Mint 5 on and IDE hd. The SATA hd was only for data.

Gave up.

Installed Mandriva Powerpack 2008 - no problems - still sees drives as /hdxx and /sdxx instead of making them all /sdxx.

Re: can't boot Mint or XP, fdisk-l below

Its good to know that I'm not the only one with these problems, not that knowledge helps :roll: ( see my post "Mint 5 and mix of IDE and SATA HDs" http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=13472) I see that there is now an entry in the WIKI re UUIDs http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/...

Mint 5 and mix of IDE and SATA HDs

Mint 5 ( and Ubuntu Hardy ) will see all of my HDs, a mix of IDE and SATA on my Gigabyte GA 7N400 Pro2 mobo ( I actually have 2 PCS with this mobo). Despite the PC BIOS setting Primary Master ( IDE) as the boot hd, and without SATA hd attached, Mint (and Ubuntu) are seeing this as the first hd and n...

Re: Daryna KDE CE BETA 044 is out!

Latest NVidia driver works fine for me with WideScreen monitor.

Shutdown problem has rectified itself after recent updates.

Sound stops working after running 1 flash-based ( ie youtube) video - next video or anything else, including Amarok, has no sound until I log out and in again.

Re: Firefox Needs Update

So why doesn't the MintGoogle search page allow "Advance" search etc like the standard google page we used to get?

I'll just use Opera for my searches until this is fixed in Mint or I figure out how to "fix" it in Firefox.

Maybe just install the Ubuntu version of Firefox?
