Best way to upgrade?

What is the best way to upgrade Linux Mint (Maya)? It's installed as dual boot with Windows 7 (using windows boot manager) and the windows-part is crypted, so no writing into MBR. (The crypt and Windows are company standards, so I can't affect them, but I can have other OSs installed by the side.) I...

Re: Assembly programming in Mint

Ah, GCC adds a prologue that rearanges the parameters and calls "main". # GCC # Stack is: #ESP -> ret addr # argc # argv -> argv[0] -> "program name" # argv[1] -> "Key" # argv[2] -> "Infile" # argv[3] -> "Outfile" # GAS # Stack is: #ESP -> argc # argv[0] -> "program name" # argv[1] -> "Key" # argv[2...

Assembly programming in Mint

Didn't come up with any better place to ask this, but: Does anyone have an idea how Mint handles the command line parameters? I wrote a small toy program, in AT&T form assembly, and if I compile it with GCC it works fine, but if I compile it with GAS, the command line parameters are garbage, and the...

Pixma MP140 problem

I've been searching for help about getting the pixma mp140 to work normally (as it did with Lucid Puppy 5.2.8) with no luck. I wonder if the printer driver could be tried out some way by-passing cups. With "lpr" or something... Is that possible, and if it is, then how? Also, I wonder if samba-shared...

Re: Does Olivia support my HW

The packages installed fine in Nadia (14) - there was only 32-bit divers compiled for amd64 I guess. The driver works, but not fine. I don't know what's the problem, but printing one page text file (about hald pages text) takes about 10 minutes. Maybe I should install Olivia instead and try with tha...

Re: SSE2 - AMD Athlon XP 3000+ and Flashplayer?

That's why I decided to upgrade. 626 is beginning to be the default for binaries, so you need to compile yuourself or upgrade. I bumped to that when I was using Puppy on old 741 Ultra / Athlon XP1900+ and couldn't get newer Chrome nor Flashplayer to work. Chrome (with all the Frameworks and object l...

Re: Funny printing problem with Canon PIXMA MP140

Has anybody tried Raring's packages? I understand it uses Cups 1.6.2-1ubuntu5. The https://launchpad.net/~till-kamppeter/+archive/ppa might help, but Quantal only has one package: cups-filters, and Raring has no cups-related packages. Also, ppa:michael-gruz/canon has no packages for Quantal or Rarin...

Re: CANON MP150 hangs while printing after recent updates

The latest is that they seem to be sending a usb reset after the document and the canon printers don't like this, they have released a fix. So just a matter of them deploying it.
