Installing Linux Mint 10 easy steps!

I decided to break down installing Linux Mint into 10 easy steps, after almost two years of usage I feel I have learned a thing or two. I am by no means a expert and may have missed a step or a typo so feel free to correct me or add something I missed. 1. Create bootable Mint ISO on CD or USB. 2. In...

Re: How often should you apt-get update/upgrade

So I shouldn’t use apt-get update at all? I have never seen a Wine update with the Mint update system, I usually look really close to what its doing, it is possible I miss it though.

How often should you apt-get update/upgrade

Really, how often is are the programmes updated? Is once a week enough? Is there a to much or is this just all a personal preference on how often you want to upgrade software to the newest version?

Resize my drive?

I would like to remove Winblows from my SSD, can I use Gparted to do this, or do I need to reload Mint? I might buy a separate HD and install Winsuck at a later date if I ever feel the need. But for now the Wingarbage is just taking up space and I would like to clean the infection from off my drive....

Re: Linux and games (Steam)

It basically means you can try it with AMD or Intel but don't expect a refund if the graphics come out all garbage. There are a lot of Steam games that are there to trap you into using Ubuntu/Steam OS/Nvidia graphics because they're the main players behind the advances in Linux gaming. This is what...

Re: Shutdown way too fast, something wrong?

Yep nothing is wrong, its glorious isn't it! You will find that some times after running certain software your shut down will hang a bit. If all I do is surf the web it shuts down before I can get up out of the chair but if I run "some games", not all. It will hang a bit. I recommend you sit back an...
