Re: Periodic Boot Failure

Michaelm I'm just trying to weed out the knowns and unknowns. Last night I looked into it being a nvidia problem because I know that the nvidia kernel module is finicky about being matched up to the correct kernel build and I don't know how the repo handles that. Gave up on that one quick. I think W...

Re: Mint 15 doesn't install C++ compiler or appear to have o

No, it isn't installed by default. Search g++ in the package manager and you will find it.

Re: Periodic Boot Failure

I have the same problem but has been getting worse lately. The error comes and goes for some reason and the stack trace message is not always the same. I only have 1 hard drive on the machine and I don't have Windows installed on it. However, I do have drive set up to multiboot Mint 15 Cinnamon, Cen...

Re: MariaDB - First use

You could install MySQL Workbench using the package installer. It is a good and fairly straight forward GUI front end that works fine with MariaDB and could help you. Or if you just need to practice with SQL, Netbeans and Java DB/Derby make a good pair. [url=http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/my...

Re: unable to install Mint due EFI

I feel your pain. I installed Mint 15 on a machine using efi boot a few weeks ago and there was a lot of trial and error involved. It was the only OS I was putting on the machine (no Windows) and I had to change some of the BIOS settings. This is what worked for me in the end. 1. Partition the drive...

Re: Both NetBeans 7.0.1 and 7.3.1 will now work.

Netbeans runs in the Java Runtime Enviroment (JRE) and technically does not have to be "installed". You can open a terminal and cd into the netbeans/bin directory that you unpacked and just type netbeans and it should start. You also have to make sure you installed a java JDK first. You ca...

Re: Cannot install mysql with the software manager

Installing mySQL from repos has given a lot people headaches lately and it is not only on Debian based sysems. Many distros package management systems are adding MariaDB as a alternative. It uses the same commands/tools/files as mySQL and is built from the same source code.

Adding repo info.

Re: re NVIDIA accelerated graphics drivers...r/o, pls.

Depends what graphics chipset you have.

I have an old nvidia ge force 210 card and the recommended drivers work fine. If it is older than that (which I doubt) you will want to look it up and there is a place to look it up but I can't remember where.

Hope that helped and post again if it didn't.
