Re: LMDE SpinX3 Wishlist

"LMDE" branding is potentially confusing vs. "LXDE;" emphasize "Mint Debian" instead. Still deciding whether a bleeding-edge Flash player is a good fit... it can't get here for amd64 soon enough. Bugs do seem to be chromium 11.x's fault. Nothing to do with the Debian ed...

Re: LMDE SpinX3 Wishlist

In case it didn't bubble up from the "libva1 / vlc broken in wheezy" threads, it would be good to have a pinned area in the forum for those OMGWTFBBQ moments.

New PC, win 7 and for whatever reason absolute inability to burn an ISO that works. Let's solve that problem. Diagnose your optical drive hardware and media: does it read all kinds of discs OK? Diagnose your optical drive software and media: does it write any files OK to your blank discs? Diagnose ...

Re: Unable to access 2 websites, ISP blaming Linux

I currently run 2 websites, both of which i am unable to access from both my Linux machines. You're implying a non-Linux machine on your local network is able to access them. That's likely not the case. Having spoken to my host and ISP, both can access the websites. My ISP believes Linux is the pro...
