Re: Mint 11 ( 12? ) oem and image deploy to roll out.

Greetings! Only two not critical issues left. Is there a way to tell the liveCD \ OEM install (The oem install in this case) to which Desktop Environment \ Window Manager to use? I ran the LM11 oem install on a real test machine (not VM) and the default gnome session was a pain to deal with. The [Gn...

Re: Log in screen messed up

I bet better to try a change. Just a few hints - you have a gdm problem. Try dpkg-reconfigure gdm at first. Just further tips - If the above does not help - you need something else. Try to reinstall gdm. If that is not work out again then: Try to install kdm (just in case of emergency) then remove g...

Re: Mint 12 oem and image deploy to roll out.

Greetings again! Probably the remastersys version could be a good option but it does not seem to work well by default. Just yet would like to know how to set Openbox\LXDE for the upcoming live session and\or the default WM\DE for the newly created users. Can not find any easy-to-find and usuable inf...

Re: Mint 12 oem and image deploy to roll out.

Thank You for the tips again! I did not know about labels. Anyhow I think I will stick at the good old /dev/sdaX version in case. But try to think about it what would be the good use. Probably will help. You can change /etc/fstab to use /dev/sda1 notation. You can also use labels as an alternative, ...

Re: Mint 12 oem and image deploy to roll out.

Thank You pluraldave for the tip. For this turn I just skipped preseeding. Anyhow a feature would be nice in the upcoming installs to create or save\load that on an easy way. Anyhow - cloning several at once would be a benefit in this exact situation. Even could be faster than install from a server....

Re: how to clone,create an entire "image" of hard drive[solv

There are fortunately several fine alternatives out there. Some things to look out for. Always take a reliable backup prior to act... B-) (Whoops I have to do one right now... B-) ) +1 to CloneZilla. Espetially for DRBL . It is the GUI-Multicast-live-server-universal-tool version of clonezilla. Anyh...

Re: Mint 12 oem and image deploy to roll out.

Thank You again! I know quite enough about cloning a box. I use clonezilla regurarly. (Probably there are other solutions.) They do the things I mentioned above. Also they develop drbl.org - and provide full usb\live-iso to download DRBL which is the multicast \ server part on an xfce-debian with cl...

Mint 11 ( 12? ) oem and image deploy to roll out.
