ImageWriter

I tried using imagewriter (which is installed by default) instead of my usual unetbootin. Well, now I have no "write" access to my thumb drive. I have tried reformating but nothing changes. When plugged in the thumb drive says it is "Linux Mint LMDE" but shows no files. It wont even mount after an u...

Re: Only one CPU core detected.

Yes, the default kernel is the 486. So if you are only running off of the Live then you will only be using the single core. After install, and all updates, go to device driver manager and that is where you can install 686. I am sure there is a way to remastersys an ISO to include the 686 instead of ...

Re: Only one CPU core detected.

You probably have the 486 kernel. Go to Device Driver Manager and see if there is a 686 kernel available. The scan takes a few minutes before it shows the results. After you update to 686 it will use all cores. (From what I know)

Correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks for the suggestion I'll give it a go and see if it works, for what it's worth I just tried booting the regular LM14 and it does bott just fine, I think they just haven't implemented that code into the debian version or something like that ..

Re: 2007 Intel Mac

Well, Since nobody else seems to have a similar question I will provide some input that I have found anyways. After further reading on both the LM forum as well as other forums it seems to be that the problem lies within the boot access. Namely, Grub vs EFI. Macintosh uses a form of EFI to boot thei...

Re: 1.6.7: Desktop icons are gone, missing setting in option

Here is the fix for Ubuntu users, do the following. Use dconf-editor and go to org-gnome-desktop-background and tick "Show desktop icons". Not sure if Mint has dconf. Here is the problem, I need to do that every time I turn on the computer. Not the best fix. That sounds like a lot of work. I prefer...

(sorry not a solution) It looks like in your logs, it is asking for authentication.
