Re: Virtualbox running Linux Mint 12 Is giving me odd screen

I am running Mint12 in VB and I don't see these problems. What exactly are you doing when you say you are trying to open system info? What program is that? Can you try to run it in a terminal to see if you get any error messages?

Re: Linux Mint 12 not booting

This thread might be helpful. I was having the same problem until I booted with the option "nomodeset".

Re: Mint 12 install hangs or presents comand prompt.

Here's the followup to my previous post. Hope someone finds this helpful. I started the install disk (usb flash drive in my case) with the option nomodeset. The install booted up to the live session page. Terrible graphics of course. I went through the installation and rebooted to the install Mint 1...

Re: Mint 12 install hangs or presents comand prompt.

OK, I'm having a similar problem. My install hangs right after it detects my mouse. I never get to a command prompt or anything else. It just says that the mouse is detected and it hangs there. My system is a Intel core i5 processor running on a Asus P7P55 LX MB with a Nvidia GeForce GTX550 Ti video...

Re: UEFI: Windows 8 will ban Linux running on ARM

Although this will not affect me personally, as I build my own computers, it will cause me problems in converting people to Linux. All of the many people I have convinced to try Linux have machines that were purchased with Windows installed. This is a major concern for me.

Re: Drives' map changing at reboot brings fstab error

In fstab, mount the partitions using their UUID instead. To determine the UUID of each partition enter sudo blkid in a terminal. Then edit your fstab to replace the current partition name with the UUID. A typical entry would look like this. UUID=44ca67a0-71a5-43e8-83b9-2e2b8516a75c /mnt/Backups ext3...

Re: Is it the Hardware?

The disk that came with that MB actually has some Linux drivers on it. I don't know if the sound card is included. But you might take a look at that. I don't have much hope it will help because as I never had to use any of them as everything worked out of the box on mine with the same MB.

Re: Is it the Hardware?

You could just install a sound card and see if that fixes the problem. I'm running the same MB as you and I have no problems with the integrated sound.

Re: new partition is mounted under media

I understand that. It does not change the permissions of the files. The user can copy, rename, delete any file for which the user has permission. If the user desires to perform functions on files for which the user does not have permission the user has to do so with the by either changing the permis...

Re: new partition is mounted under media

Perhaps I should not have used the word permissions. The options users and rw allows you to mount the partition so that it can be accessed by any user and that user would have read and write privileges.

Re: new partition is mounted under media

I mount all of my partitions with user access using the fstab.

To do this, I create a directory in /mnt and add an entry to the fstab file that mounts the partition in that directory with full permissions for users. If you want to do this, post back and I will post detailed instructions.

Re: LinuxMint Number 1 on Distrowatch

All the Linuxes needs to be more united with all other Linux distros. For some reason, we cannot co-operate with each other. We need to centralize all distros into one. One of the great things about Linux is that you have many choices. Only having one Linux distro would be a terrible idea. If you w...

Re: Very, very basic networking question

With a router you would be able to set up a home network that would allow you to share files between the two computers. As they are both linux computers I would recommend you set them up with NFS. A good tutorial on how to do this is located here.

Re: Very, very basic networking question

I would suggest that the best way to do this is to purchase a router. With a shared internet connection, the host computer must be up and running for the the second computer to have a connection. With a router, each computer would have its own connection and would not depend on the other computer. A...
