Re: Trying to edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file - doesn't ex

At first, because GRUB 2 was different; I didn't care for it much. The lack of proper documentation was really the source of most of my frustration. However, now that it has been in use for a couple of releases, documentation has improved greatly. If you still need some clarity as to how to properly...

Re: Linux Mint 9 "Isadora" RC released!

1.) When I added my nvidia graphics drivers and rebooted, GDM did not load. I was prompted at a console screen. I rebooted since, and GDM starts. It was the fact that it didn't the first time that bothers me. When this happened though, I logged in and ran 'startx' to get to the desktop. EDIT: GDM st...

Re: plz no Plymouth in mint 9

I just installed 9's RC, and yeah.. After installing my nVidia drivers, the boot screen does look like crap. (fonts look like garbage, logo is too bright).. If this is what plymouth is... it is garbage. Also, after installing my drivers, on the first reboot, GDM did not come up, I was prompted for l...

Re: ASUS dual boot question

I agree with Jay. It's probably not a great idea to go and try this. Hopefully somebody will reverse engineer it, and put together a hack to do something like this.

Re: How to update BIOS on Mint8?

This is just my 2 cents; If you aren't experiencing any problems, or the BIOS update doesn't specifically fix any problems you may have / or are currently having, it's always safer to go with the 'If it ain't broke- don't fix' method. Often times, a computer ships with the same BIOS firmware that co...

Seeing as I am waiting for the x64 version, to save myself a CD, I used USB Creator to put Mint 8 KDE RC on a USB stick and give the live version a try. It took a while to load, but when I ran the installer, once I selected the country I'm from and clicked the Next button, the installer crashed. Tri...

I played with Kubuntu 9.10 a little and personally believe they did a horrible job on the release- those problems co...

Re: Slow Boot for Helena / Moblin on Toshiba NB205

I would like to know if you determine why boot times are slower. With Mint 7 Gloria, I had amazing boot times of 20-25sec. Now I'm up to between 55sec and just over 1 minute.

Re: Linux Mint 8 x64 RC1 Bug Thread

I did a comparison of Boot times.. and Helena is ALOT slower than Gloria. I'm not sure if it's a Bug per say, however there is lots of room for improvement!

Helena x64 RC1 (50s) graphical boot chart.
Gloria x64 (21s) graphical boot chart
