Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Okay, managed to get Xen to boot. It was a problem with the newer version. Downgraded to the version that works, and it boots now. Cinnamon is broken (no bottom panel/mint menu, keyboard doesn't work, no title bars for windows), but I can fix that later. I'll continue with the guide and come back if...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Apologies for the late reply, I was away from the PC for a while. Boot into regular LM 14 (non-Xen) and go to /var/log, then check the xen logs as well as dmesg. Any hints? If you find any errors towards the end of the logs post them here. The only line with the word error in dmesg is this: [ 3.7904...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Yeah, I hear the login sound too. I looked up updating the driver via command line, but it's too long to be able to do totally blind. Any thoughts anyone?

LM12 - No display on AMD APUs

Hi, I tried to live boot LM12 from USB, and my screen just turns off when I select LM12 from the portable drive. The system boots and works - 'ctrl+alt+t' and 'sudo reboot' reboots the system. I'm sure it's a driver issue. Any way I can try an older driver? LM11 works flawlessly. Anyone else facing ...

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

So, I tried using multiboot, but that doesn't seem to work (just gets stuck at the boot menu). I also tried using Universal USB Installer with Linux Mint 11. Drive is bootable now, but the issue is the same as before - no display. System boots, I can hear the startup sound of LM. System is not freez...

Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

I tried putting the 64bit DVD on a usb drive, using pendrivelinux.com's Universal USB Installer. Since it doesn't yet support Lisa, I first tried it with unlisted distro, new syslinux. That didn't work, so I tried it with old syslinux. The drive is bootable now. Booting shows an LM12 screen that say...

Poor battery life on AMD A8 Processor

Hi! I've been using Mint on my desktop for more than a year now, and my love for the system led me to install it on my new laptop. It is an HP Pavilion DV6Zqe laptop, with AMD's new Llano based A8-3510MX processor. I'd like help with a couple of things: 1. The battery life with a 9 cell battery is w...
