Re: Working install (not "live-DVD" ) on a USB - possible?

Search for Mint 15 live persistence. Absolute offtopic. A read-only live system with a persistence file that merely softens the read-only restrictions is exactly NOT what the OP pwvirgo wants.

Mint 13 would be my suggestion though since no mention of hardware/computer specs being menti...

Re: howto to tell if my Toshiba Satellite A100 has bluetooth

Good Luck with it. Please turn your Notebook upside down and check whether or not a Bluetooth sticker is attached. Check your product model sticker string above the serial number, if it includes a "B" (=Bluetooth) near the end. In both cases Bluetooth is built-in. http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/bluetoo...
