you may need an older nvidia driver.
envy puts the latest and greatest driver on which does have problems with older card (but not that old).

I would have thought that your centos server would be running CUPS for print services. SAMBA could share out printers as well.

If so set up CUPS on mint to send jobs to CUPS on centos.
CUPS admin is from a browser localhost:631 or hostname:631.
hope this helps.

just what i thought! alot of swap partitions created from installs. you only need one swap that is 1.5 to 2x your ram size and point both mints at it. this is a manual config job. you should have one swap that is the biggest (this will be the first one created from the first install). using gparted ...

OMG it looks like you have 13 partitions on your hard disk! :o I would be surpprised if there was that many though I have noticed some strange partition creation with auto partitioning at install. in a terminal window could you run this command and post it here. #sudo fdisk -l This should list all p...

I installed mint kde with mint gnome and xp.
It all worked fine.
I can see the /,/dev/.static/dev only in gparted. I wouldn't worry about it since it is listing the mount point of the root partitions as / (correct) and as some other device mumbo jumbo (just to confuse you).
more later.

it sounds like a kernel module (driver) or daemon problem to do with the sound card. It could be the "cpu over load" message just keeps repeating even though it only dies once. It just keeps repeating the error to the console. You could go into a terminal session and the message should keep repeatin...

that looks like complete junk. try commenting it out (put a # at the beginning of the line). Yes you should be able to install all three OS's but grub might not correctly add the other mint linux. manual editing of the grub menu.lst may be required for other operating systems and definitely if you u...

The problem with 64/32 bit systems is that if you want a true 64 bit system you need all the applications compiled in/for 64bit not just have a 64bit kernel and 32bit applications.
This is where distros like gentoo are the best for 64bit. It just takes you 2+ days to compile/setup your system.

Think of eject for usb drives the same way as with CD's being ejected. If you eject a CD it unmounts it and opens the CD draw or pushes it out physically. So you will have to physically put it back in to read it again. If you unmount a CD the CD stays in the CD drive, ready to be mounted again. If u...

Eject is not unmount. eject is unmount and forget about this device totally. if you unmount (umount) the usb drive you can mount it again or fdisk/gpart etc. if you eject the usb drive you can not mount it since the system no longer knows the device is there. you would have to replug it in or rescan...

I agree. This sort of message is where mint can refine itself and also not scare off new users. But this is more than just an error message problem.

I'm with telic.
Any action that requires root access should first ask for a password. Then if you are not in the sudoers list you should get a polite "action denied due to insufficient privileges. please see your system administrator...".
Or something of the like.

well i hope/think he is saying that by installing the package "nautilus-gksu" from the synaptic package manager, the option "open as administrator" will appear when you right click the nautilus icon. (ie viewing any folder contents)
