Re: Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first.

I decided to run sudo apt-get upgrade . Never use this command in LMDE . I rebooted, ran Update Manager and it proposed another hundred or so packages. You're lucky that a half-upgraded system survived the reboot. What concerns me now is that during the boot sequence (right after Mint is selected i...

This is probably not the right forum for my question but I don't know where else to post it... I have posted a question in the Newbie Questions forum but I cannot see it posted and yet people are replying to it so they must see it! What setting in Control Panel am I missing so that I also can see my...

I just installed Linux Mint 11 (GNOME, 32-bit) on a USB flash drive. I am fairly new to the Linux world...

Does the clock automatically synchronize with one of the atomic time servers, or do I have to install some application for that?

The first question that I have is: Will Linux Mint 12 install on a 32GB flash drive?
Lots of room. I have it on a 4GB stick with almost 3GB of free space left.
Thanks for the info!
