Re: Sandy Bridge support for LMDE??? Newer iso maybe?

After reading the HP page on the laptop it seems it has Radeon graphics on board, but Sandy Bridge already has integrated Intel graphics on the CPU itself, which means you have 2 GPUs on your laptop. Perhaps you can force which GPU do you use in BIOS? If yes then maybe having fun with this option wi...

Re: Mint 11 installer wiped my data drive :-(

Yes... I would consider removing these options from the installer and force the user to do manual partitioning until better working options are developed.

Re: Mint 11 and Sandy Bridge: Better but I still need your h

No. On VirtualBox the card is virtualized, so I do not know which brand does it immigrate it seems to work out-of-the-box after all updates and after installing the guest additions. On the host I use Geforce 570, so the integrated card remains offline. I will try Mint 11 directly on the host soon, b...

On the host I still use Mint 10 and I have no OS related problems with Sandy Bridge.

Re: TFT monitor

If you just need your files back, then remove the HDD from your laptop and put it inside another computer.

Re: Mint 11 and Sandy Bridge: Better but I still need your h

In Mint 11 Compiz works out of the box!!... but it doesn't turn on until I reload it with Fusion Icon. How can I have it enabled on load? Strangely enough, I experience the same thing when Mint 11 is installed on a VirtualBox machine (the host is Sandy Bridge too, but I am not sure this is relevant).

Re: S-video in Mint 11

What graphic card do you have? I noticed that on Linux my nvidia card does not work with s-video out, but it works with standard monitor vga out. On windows both outputs work. Must be a driver issue in my case.

Re: Problems with md5sum check

You probably remember the output of md5sum started in a different way. If you mount your DVD you will notice, that there is a file called md5sum.txt on the DVD. If you open this file you will notice, that it has an md5 sum calculated for every file on the DVD. You can then run the command: md5sum -c...

Re: Problems with md5sum check

Normally to verify, that two files are the same you would have to compare them byte by byte. The can take very long if the files are big (like a DVD image). If you download the file from the Internet, then making sure that every byte in this file is correct becomes even more difficult. Instead you c...

Re: Microsoft purchased Skype :(

It would be possible, but very difficult. You would need to do some reverse engineering and every time they change something, the open source version would have to keep up - I say, its pointless. It would be better to focus work on an independent program, which does not connect to Skype servers and ...

I didn't try xfce, but with gnome you simply right click on a folder and enable sharing - thats about it. More advanced stuff can be done in a different way depending on what do you need.

Re: I lost window borders

try to run the application from console, and see if any error (like a segfault) gets printed in the console window. Also check the system logs. Then the only route is to file a bug report.

Re: Trucrypt - As part of LiveCD

I also love TrueCrypt, but I would vote against putting it on the live CD. As far as I am concerned, the live CD should contain basic and most necessary functionality -a set of as many drivers as possible to enable Internet access, a web browser, a number of administrative tools (like gparted), then...

Re: Microsoft purchased Skype :(

M$ bought Skype because Skype has the physical network connections. Not because Skype is especially good software. Actually physical network is just a small % of the 8.5 billion dollar deal. The real value is the 40+ mln user-base. With such a large user-base one can dictate appropriate prices for ...

Re: Microsoft purchased Skype :(

Linux user-base is not significant in terms of numbers, but I would find it very funny, if everyone in the world just uninstalled Skype right now, making this 8.5 billion dollar acquisition the biggest, most epic fail of all time.
