Re: ELYSSA WON'T BOOT!!!

Ok so I'm a huge Mint fan and ever since I discovered Daryna I've been getting all my friends to give it a try as well. I think Mint is the best distro by far, and I thought Elyssa would be a major improvement, but I ran into a showstopper. The live CD for Elyssa works fine. I can boot into a regul...

Of course not. But it does seem to manage to avoid painfully obvious regressions release after release unlike Ubuntu - go figure. 8)

Re: How to: Linux Native devices that work - period

Ok, sorry if I don't get it perfectly, I should create a script withe that exact text inside and then add it to init.d? Or it's enough to run it once? Actually, for Gutsy, it was a one time run script, designed to be set to execute and then doubled clicked, run in terminal. That said, it looks like...

Re: Is Hardy Heron a bit too buggy?

Sorry if this has been posted already, but the latest V8 moment for Ubuntu users - SATA drives and lockups?
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/204996

I am claiming it to be SATA based on the consistent specs that appear to be suffering I/O problems.

Re: Blacklist broadcom

Hope this is not too late http://linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=34576#p34576 Clem you said it would be fixed in Gutsy - it was not and Hardy is reported to be even worse Blacklisting bcm43xx seems a very good option now...

Re: Why I am coming back to Mint

@ jbaerbock What is discussed in this topic is an error that appears before you have any chance of blacklisting. Some Broadcom chips gives an error "something about microcode" before you are able to boot and if my memory serves me right you can't boot the live CD at all Oops, I missed that you alre...

Re: Why I am coming back to Mint

You do know you can just edit the blacklist file and add blacklist bcm43xx to the list and it will blacklist it for good right? Sure, assuming it loads from the CD in first place. Heck, even using the Ubuntu alternate CD and the blacklisting boot parameter failed. ;) It's a common misconception tha...

Re: Is Hardy Heron a bit too buggy?

I so saw this happening with the final release, even after the bug was falsely said to be fixed - select Ubuntu devs have honesty issues IMO. http://linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=151&t=10525&p=64602&hilit=ctsdownloads#p64602 So yes, the totally avoidable b43-phy0 ERROR Loop is left untouched a...

Re: How to: Linux Native devices that work - period

Just to update: the EW7318usg has been running nonstop for over 12 hours and has not slowed down or frozen once. That and all three of the the previously mentioned devices use WPA Personal perfectly, no issues at all, easy-peasy. ;)

Re: How to: Linux Native devices that work - period

Interesting - as this is more a suggestion I'll move it to that section
Cool, thanks. Yeah, it sort of falls into a gray area of quasi-how to and suggestion, but the script is key for people tired of chasing the wireless rainbow. :)

Thanks! :)

How to: Linux Native devices that work - period

I have been working on Linux wireless since about 2005 and after many phone calls and contacts made, have some solutions. In the past, people here and in the Ubuntu forums have tried to get various Ralink products working. Best luck was had with chipsets based on rt2500, however even at that there h...

Why I am coming back to Mint

I have been following Clem for sometime now (virtually) and the one thing I have to say has impressed me more than anything else about Mint is that the users are actually being heard.

AlsaPhil, just to be totally sure. You have had success with captive portals using Linux Mint whereas you did not have success with captive portals (hotel wifi login) on Ubuntu? Thanks

Is this an integrated wifi setup? If it is, then bingo. I had the same trouble on my Averatec notebook. Took me weeks to finally understand that even with the right driver loaded, short of removal of the chip itself, you are not likely to have many options here. Now, if this is a cardbus adapter, th...

That's good to hear. The great thing is that the "why" has already been figured out for gnome obex send.

bluetooth - do you have this working for file transfers?

Curious if anyone here has had any luck with bluetooth file transfers from their PC to their mobile phones.

I had this working great with Ubuntu Dapper, but Edgy is no longer having it. I run a gnome-obex-send and nothing is being discovered...

Anyone else had this happen?

Thanks to both of you. :) Clem: Yeah it's wild, I have been using network manager. (Meant manager the first time, not "selector") It sees the SSIDs, even allows me to "connect" to them under Ubuntu.
