Re: The Mint 15 joke

Yet another 2cents since my last visit. Have yet to decide on my last dilemma :oops: ! However, have just upgraded my children's pc from Mint11 to MintLMDE, yup it's the "Rolling" distro edition. Looks like this should fit the bill for general home use after they are already accustomed to Mint11. Ro...

Re: The Mint 15 joke

It's 2013-Oct-5th. Well, just a 2cents from someone still using Linux Mint 11 - 64bits :) and still running WinXp in Virtualbox in Mint11. I was fully aware of the LTS version, but went ahead with Mint11 anyway. I did not need to upgrade from Mint11 until now - I must have broken something when enab...

Re: 3.1 Strikes Again

Still not there yet. To be more specific, I had surround working by using the Analog Stero Duplex profile. That doesn't make sense, I know, but that's how it was. Sound was coming out of all 5 speakers and the sub. Using the 5.1 profile, front left and front right sound was missing, creating a "3.1...

Re: No Surround Sound In LM11:XtremeAudio

I can sympathize with you if you want 5.1 working. Especially it you had before! Here's what I did (assuming you are using ALSA) Test if it is possible to get all the channels, open a terminal window. speaker-test -Dplug:surround51 -c6 You should hear white noise in all the speakers. If you can hea...

Re: Mint LiveCD on Acer Aspire 4736Z - Monitor/LCD/VGA issue

Try this: Next time you boot from the live DVD, at the boot options, add i915.modeset=0 instead of using vga=xxx If it boots up with the laptop screen working, then you know you can install Mint to the hard drive and make the video fix permanent by editing a grub configuration file. Here's how. Aft...

Re: Katya partitioning. Suggestions

Hi, I am also about to install Mint11 on my new system and have also done some reading regarding partitioning. Not really sure your intention here but hope to share what I have read so far. Yes, it's seemed a good practice in linux to partition the hard disk. Since your strategy is: (i) / ; (ii) /ho...
