BETA 048 is out!

Postby Zwopper » Mon May 26, 2008 3:44 am

So far no flaws in 0.48!
It looks better (aurora engine installed), responds snappier - good job as usual by the Linux Mint team!
Lots of nice artwork from the community's most talented artists included!
I fail to see how this version can be improved upon till the final release. - Rock solid, nice looks!

what is confusing me is that in synaptic, it says that i have flashplayer-nonfree, flashplugin-nonfree and libflashsupport all installed.

if i navigate to a site that needs the flash plugin, i get the "install missing plugin button" so i click it. it goes through the installation process, i restart firefox and it still tells me that i need to install the missing plugin.

so i tried installing the RPM file from the adobe website, and get this error ..

error: Failed dependencies:
/bin/sh is needed by adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch


so i tried downloading and unpacking the tar.gz version and running the flashplayer_install script, and when it asks for a valid installation path - e.g. /usr/lib/mozilla, it ignores whatever i enter.

if i enter /usr/lib/mozilla or /usr/lib/firefox it just keeps asking me for a valid installation path.

so i'm stuck !

i really have no clue other than maybe to un-install the flash stuff through synaptic and try it that way

*edit

as it seems beta 048 is out, would it be an easier solution to just re-format and do a clean install of that instead?

Dear god, i'm in the LiveCD and it works wonderfully. All of the bugs i've previously mentioned are gone, every single last one of them. I'm partitioning my hd so i can test this more, this seems like a gold release.

Downloaded 048 at a whopping 1.4 MB/s. Not only is Mint the best distro, but it has the best download speed. It installed just fine. Bluetooth is working once again. Microphone had to be enabled, but that's an ALSA thing.

One request, can you have this set as default:

echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/asus-laptop/ls_switch

The ambient light sensor is causing the computer to boot-up with a dim screen, in addition it takes away your brightness controls. The above command turns off the ambient light sensor and gives you back brightness control. This is as far as I know is an Asus notebook bug.

IMPORTANT WARNING

BETA 048 hasn't been approved by Exploder yet. The only reason I pushed it out towards the mirrors is so we can quickly release it when and if Exploder gives the go ahead. Right now you're looking at an ISO which we don't know the quality of and there is a possibility that this ISO be deleted and replaced if something wrong is found about it.

Of course you can download it and have fun with it, but you should really wait for the announcements before you even consider this a BETA. There is absolutely no guarantee that this particular ISO (BETA 048) will be the one making it to the next public BETA release.

Clem.
