I have installed VMware tools fine without a problem. Also, logging out or restarting the...

Re: Release Date for Linux Mint 11 KDE

I'm a former mandriva user. According me mandriva dies because new release 2011 is disaster. Many longtime users abandoned it and migrate to better distros. Including me. During waiting for that unfortunate Mandriva 2011 release I was running on Linux Mint 11. So I returned here but I try LMDE. I wa...

1: Install LMDE 201109

2: After the installation do NOT update and turn off the multimedia and security repo.

Re: LMDE 201109 - Important INFO

It was so difficult to write in the first post like to correct sources.list?

I would like to say that I'm looking forward to LMDE KDE. I'm former mandrake/mandriva user for years. I prefer KDE, but present Mandriva 2011 is for me enough. This time I'm running on basic Linux Mint 11 Gnome and in vmware virtual I'm testing LMDE RC. And idea about rolling KDE version is very go...

Re: We need more testers to the new incoming repo (how-to)

Today I managed to update LMDE into state according picture.
I used as base linuxmint-debian-201101-gnome-dvd-i386.iso.
I had to download more than one thousand packages and some restarts.

I do not know if I it is correct. I'm using "latest" repo and I have update pack 2 too this time.
