Mepis 7 was delayed because of Warren's wage-earning comitments and finally came out in somewhat of a rush just before last Christ...

Mint problem on dual boot Dell desktop

Hi all, I have recently installed Mint 4.0 (Gnome) on my Dell desktop and am having some issues which I am keen to resolve. I have just become a Mint fan purely by chance (after toying with Ubuntu and Mepis) and this is definitely the distro I am going to stick with. Mint is the sole system on my Ac...
