Re: Bad news about user Husse

Good morning all, I've not been on the Mint site for a while, however I have had many chats with Mats over a period of time and I have to say how sad I am to hear this news. Mats was a patient and forgiving man, he would go to any lengths to help anyone he could, if only there were more people like ...

Re: Raid Controller Suggestions

Hi ! The solution I have used in the past to get Mint/Other OS onto a Hardware RAID based storage solution is to use this type of device : http://www.ccidistribution.co.uk/uploads/cciupload/email/gtech_storage_oct09/gtech_prostorage_apple_oct09.htm?utm_source=gtech_storage_apple_oct09&utm_medium=ema...

Re: Strange video artifacts

Hi !

This is almost certainly a video driver problem, try using the mesa driver instead of the ATI driver.

Re: Raid Controller Suggestions

Hi Husse! I try and drop by when time permits :) Not sure what the problem is that is inherited from ubuntu as they support installing onto RAID/LVM base systems ? We just need an "Alternative" install version of Mint, like Ubuntu have, to allow this to happen. With more and more machines coming pre...

Re: Raid Controller Suggestions

Hi ! For a desktop machine why not use software RAID ? To be honest on such a machine you won't notice the difference, if it were a server serving 100+ clients then you would see the benefit of hardware RAID, but for a desktop machine stick with software RAID! The other plus is that it is compatible...

Re: Slow Internet Coonection in Mint 7 Gloria

Hi ! Ok, no one has actually said how they are connecting to their router, via ethernet or wifi ? If via wifi then go to ethernet, wifi is notoriously slow, ethernet is 100mb capable or more, do you see a difference, if so then stick with ethernet cable! The other thing is IPv6, I have seen this con...

Re: Commercial use

Since Mint is based on Ubuntu and is Open Source I doubt you could legally charge for it ?

Charging for an application is something else altogether, but you need a clear definition between the two.

Re: can't setup software raid

Hi, I wouldn't go mixing RAID and NTFS partitions on the same drive, that is a recipe for disaster ! The mkfs command below will indeed put a file system on md0 for you.

Re: can't setup software raid

Hi ! From what I can see you are having a mirrored pair and then a spare in the raid set, however you have only specified two physical disks in the array. You either need to add another physical disk to the set or remove the spare disk definition below. MikeT. i try to set up a software raid but i a...

Hi ! Mint currently doesn't support MD devices nor LVM at installation time which is a huge bug bear !

Hi Husse ! Good to see, I was helping someone else get mint installed onto MD/LVM devices too :) We need the support from install though really, so we can install Mint onto RAID/LVM devices, it's been available in Debian for years and of course can be done in Ubuntu too :) Here's hoping it will make...
