Why don't you make a "remastersys" CD, then update to 7.04. You can let us know what happens :D

If it borks things you can install the remaster :wink:

BTW, I'm on dial-up, otherwise I'd do it and let you know.

It appears as though they were dumped before anythign happened at ibiblio though and they are starting to admit that. No need to sugar coat things or provide half truths. These are all good open source Linux Distributions so I don't see the benefit in trying to sugar coat and excuse. If they outgre...

gksu vs sudo

Is there a reason for using "gksu" to open an application with root privileges instead of sudo ? The reason I ask is I'm use to distro's that only use "su" instead of "sudo" "gksu"

What does the 'gk' stand for ?

I've given most of the top distro's a fair shot, stuck with a few longer than I should have. IMO, KDE=PClinuxOS and Gnome=Linux Mint as the best, both work perfect on my 3 systems. The thing I hate about PCLOS is the menu, the thing I love about Mint is the menu. I'm not a big fan of Gnome so maybe ...

GNOME-dial up-the pain [Solved]

Hello to all. I really want to be a Linux Mint user but I need help. I have an external serial modem (dial-up user). For some reason I can't get on the internet with any GNOME distro, they don't see my modem...or I don't know what to use to find it. I downloaded Mint thinking the extra config tools ...
