Re: LMDE disapointment.

If you like KDE, SolydXK takes LMDE and points it to stable. I don't know how many know Linux Mint's a mommy now. :lol: http://solydxk.com/business/solydkbe/

Re: Dual Processor Support

With a server you probably have to support you RAM also, IMHO you probably should go with a 686-PAE kernel.

Linux Mint came about by downloading it on a whim when I was going to do my 18 month overhaul of my computer running Win7, I finally reinstalled Win7 on that computer, but found anot...

Re: SSD Write Benchmarking?

I used this because I don't use Gnome

Code: Select all

hdparm -Tt /dev/sda

/dev/sda:
 Timing cached reads:   1074 MB in  2.00 seconds = 536.52 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 218 MB in  3.01 seconds =  72.54 MB/sec
This was the only one I was sure would cause any problems

Add a separator between the windows buttons and the sound icon and expand it, then make it invisible.
