Re: Linux Mint 12 with Backtrack 5?

I did a triple boot with winxp, backtrack and mint. Just load up in that order. You can also install virtualbox and put backtrack in there.

Re: Install linux Mint Alongside Xp vs. Manual Partitioning?

Auto install will detect winxp and ask if you want dual boot. Will allow you to resize winxp partition on a slider and make rest linuxmint. Easy as Peasy.

Re: Can't get external monitor to work on Asus laptop

Hi, do a check in your laptop bios to see if your extra video ports are enabled by default. Otherwise I cant think what it might be.

Re: Help me install FreeNAS

There is a way for Freenas to work ontop of Mint, but it probably is too techy for a new user. Virtualbox will run a virtual Freenas install, but like I have already said maybe a bit beyond a newbie.

Re: Misssing broadcom/sta drivers and wireless card not dete

Hi, you could try googling for the service manual for your machine. Then you could see if the wireless card is user replaceable, they usually are.

Re: Help me install FreeNAS

Same difference then really for the purpose of this particular post i.e. cant install it on top of mint. Unless you know different.

Re: Help me install FreeNAS

Freenas is a stand alone linux distro to setup a pc as a nas server. You dont install it on your OS like a program.

Re: I am wondering how to install Linux mint Debian.

Look in package manager for unetbootin or usb-imagewriter, one of those should work.

Re: pcmcia compact flash adapter card not recognized

Did you have a compact flash card in the adapter at the time. If so it should have mounted the memory device in nautilus.

Re: Opening jpg ( J peg ) photo files

You could try Gimp, Shotwell, Gthumb, Digikam or Picassa and one or two others I can't think of at the moment.

Re: Fresh install SSD partitions?

I just do an auto install in the first place, then remove and install selected software and remaster the distro to a custom install .iso image and use that for subsequent installs. I never optimise anything for ssd, suppose I should really but never bother and never have issues.
