Re: Mint 10 problems with Wine and Dosemu

Not real sure.....I am sure some one can correct me but I am thinking its part of the security in Linux. We all must remember how dangerous EXE files can be and systems can still be infected in wine. It never had problems in any of the earlier versions of mint, no problem until I installed mint 10.

This did the trick, since when did wine do this to .exe files?

Re: Mint 10 problems with Wine and Dosemu

I have been able to run Wine and Dosemu since mint 5 Felicia. My previous version was 8 Helena, and they both worked fine. I am using the i386 version on a Dell Dimension 3100. So I reinstalled wine just so I can explain what it did. I got an error message: The file '/media/TVT_RNR/Dell PC/Downloads...

[solved] Mint 10 problems with Wine and Dosemu

I installed Mint 10 a couple of weeks ago, I installed wine and it would complain every time I tried to open an .exe so I uninstalled it, because I have Virtualbox. Yesterday I installed Dosemu, and it will not open, nothing happens at all. So I installed Dosbox and that will actually work. Is there...

Re: Why I hate Linux Mint 10

Mint is a great OS, I have been using as long as the date I joined this forum. Gotta love the stability, no problems with spies, Trojans viruses, malware. Every once in a while I will click on a link on yahoo with a warning of attack just for fun, cause I know Mint can take it. :twisted:

Re: What's with the Windows bashing?

I have read through a lot of posts here and seen the reasons people claim to hate windows. Most of the time the user is doing something wrong, not using the right software for protection or did not have the OS set up properly. Yeah, this is a Linux forum, I hope you are not expecting us to praise w...

Thanks, I already installed Julia, but I will keep this in mind next time I decide to upgrade. I need to keep my system up, and cant have it down for experiments.

Re: I need to login to root acount?

At the login type root instead of your name, and use your password. But you will have the system destroyed in no time. That is why windoze is full of viruses and spys, trojans, malware...........

Because you are pretty much opening the door to the file system in windoze.

LMDE wont work with RAID

I was happy to think I was going to be doing my last Mint install for as long as I owned my Dell Dimension 3100. I have a RAID setup and have been running the Ubuntu distros of Mint for a few years. When I went to install LMDE it first gave me a choice of 2 hard drives even though they should appear...

Re: system FAN not running in Mint, yes in XP :(

mcbry, Welcome to Mint! I agree with the fondness for this wonderful OS! Are you running 32 or 64 bit version? To your fan issue... my first question: Is your computer running hot? If not... Could it be that Mint runs cooler than XP and that may be why the fan doesn't need to run? God Bless Doug x2...

Raid How to FAQ

Is there a FAQ on setting up Mint or Ubuntu with raid? Or if some one could give me the steps to success? I have a Dell Dimension E310, with 2 500 GB HDs, 2 GB Ram. I tried to install, but I sort of got lost in configuration.

Any help appreciated.

Re: [Solved]Connecting to ING Direct with Kmymoney

You can just download the OFX files, and sync to your Kmymoney, not the same as online, but I would like to start using Electric Orange to pay bills, it would be redundant to enter every thing twice.
