Lack of support for multiple hard drives during install

I have searched the forum, and it seems that other people have run into this. During installation, the installer asks you to pick a hard drive for the system to be installed onto. You must pick one, or another hard drive, you cannot pick two or more drives. Raw rookies aren't likely to want to use m...

I'm sold on LMDE and Mate!

I've diddled around with Linux Mint before this. I have LMDE installed on the wife's computer, after her Ubuntu died, and she admitted that Unity was butt-ugly. LMDE just seemed the way to go, because we both have had more experience with Debian and derivatives, than with any other distros. Her desk...

Re: Terminal does not work

I know ditto-heads aren't a lot of use - but, Ditto! My terminals have no cursor, nothing that I type shows on the terminal screen, and typing commands seem to have no result. su enter does not cause the terminal to ask for a password, nor does sudo -s Other commands seem to have no effect at all. T...

Re: Upgrade stops at installing grub-pc

I am now booted into a seemingly working system. Initial login gave me the Cinnamon desktop. Logged out, and logged back in, choosing the Classic desktop. It doesn't look right - but it seems to be working. Problem solved - strangely enough. Any additional issues will be posted in more appropriate f...

Re: Upgrade stops at installing grub-pc

Oh - great! I tried again to open Firefox, and it worked, so I'm logged in from the troubled machine! I opened a terminal, and oddly, I have no echo in the terminal. Experimenting, I was able to log in as SU - so the terminal is open. I just can't see any of my input as I type in the terminal. :( An...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

Unfortunately - the Linux world isn't doing enough work on the lightweights. My very favorite DE is Enlightenment, but it's been stuck at E17 for a long time. LXDE is nice, but it really needs some polishing. I don't understand the need to have a desktop environment that uses 1/4 of the memory on a ...

SOLVED? Upgrade stops at installing grub-pc

I've read the release notes. I did specify when asked that grub should be set up on SDA, the same place that it was originally set up. This is my second installation and update this weekend, with the same result. The first time, I simply rebooted and reinstalled LMDE. This time, I just walked away f...
