feedback on Bianca

I downloaded the Bianca, after having problems with Bea and gave it a try. I like the system initially although I had some problems, mostly due to my lack of knowledge, I suppose. Bianca found my wireless, So I got internet fairly quickly, although it took me awhile to find out how to enable the con...

installed bianca

I installed Bianca on a 2nd HD and when doing the livecd had to do the edit /etc/x11/xorg.conf route to get it to load. Was able to install from there onto the HDb1 but when I tried to logon I again had to do the edit. It does work though and I am trying to get Bianca set up for my computer and smal...

good points

thanks clem, good points. I was looking at it as a way to utilize the partnerships that could come into play by having the added features available by ubuntu's partnerships with Linspire and others they may form unions with. The direction mint goes can be aided by these partnerships by drawing on th...

Another Ubuntu, Mint question

Hey Clem, I know this has come up a couple of times, the issue being a part of Ubuntu, kind of a different flavor and tying in with their progress. I have seen that Ubuntu has paired with Linspire and will be sharing knowledge. My question is then what will be the diffence with the Ubuntu/Linspire (...

finally got it to load

I tried one more time, seemed to do the same thing, went black and said no signal coming, but I noticed the cd light was working so just waited it out and it finally loaded the livecd, and I could check it out. Haven't tried installing the OS permanently, will put in another HD and install onto that...

another thought

Hi again, seems as though there isn't too much concern if a person cannot install Linux Mint, so I thought I might ask another question. I already have Ubuntu and Grub installed, could there be anyway to run the live cd of Linux Mint that I burned, using my existing OS since the files to boot Ubuntu...

reply on video card

Hi, my video card, as far as I know is ATI Technologies - Rage 128. Don't know if there is more info than that. I look in my Device Manager and it falls under VIA Technologies, don't know how that is related though. My screen resolution is 1024 x 768 @ 60 Hz. I run Ubuntu Dapper without any problems...

my system

I don't know if it will affect your plans to install xorg and the ati drivers, but here is a listing of my xorg and it includes ati, so that doesn't seem to be the cause of my failure to install. I may be wrong, I am alot of times but it seems to be all there. I have installed (checked off) on my sy...
