Does anybody know if the problems with Atheros Communications Inc. AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter and other newer wireless cards have been solved? I remember reading somewhere that it had something to do with the Linux kernel in LM15.. It would be great if this problem had been solved! :)

The kernel version in Petra seems recent enough (3.11.0-12). Or you could try kernel 3.12 from http://packages.debian.org/experimental/kernel/

I have problems after installing Petra also - can't access the repositories and backup tool can't recognise external drives as different to root?

Hello,
Same question than a week ago...
You can just make an upgrade if not a big issue has been corretected.

I said (I am not an expert) it is playable.

As far as we can see until today everything look stable.
Now it depends of your internet connection. If slow may be you can be patient couple of days and get the torrent.

To make a short story : Possible ? yes it is. Should we ? well, each one is a particular case, I would not recommand it.

Cordially

Thank you for the reply. I'll give it a bit more thought before I decide whether or not to proceed :)

Make your mind quickly, because the final version will be delivered very soon. :P

Problems that I found with Mint 15 and 16RC

GRUB INSTALL

I have a 128Gb SSD (sdb1 --> /) and a 2 TB HD (sda1 --> /boot, sda2 --> System boot windows, sda3 --> /Windows, sda4 --> /home)

installation went smooth (jfs for / & /home, ext4 for /boot) and grub installed on sda

reboot and grub went wrong, did not install properly :shock: :? , I have to boot with LiveDVD and follow the procedure to install grub, reboot and perform and update-grub to have the menu & win7 option

Something is wrong since BOTH versions have the same issue, BUT Pear Linux 8, OpenSuse 13.1, Debian 7.2 DID NOT have the problem and grub was install without an issue :shock:

by the way I changed the UEFI Secure Boot to OTHER OS

Please revise that.


UPDATE:
New fresh installation, using LVM replacing the existing OS, did not let me choose and use the entire 2TB
Grub boot OK no issues.

Therefore, the issue -AFAIK- is when you install in two HD (sdb / & sda for /boot & /home)
Will try another installation using sdb for /boot & / with grub /sda

Quick question about Mint 16.
Since gnome is somewhat a thing of the past, will I need to go thru the pain & nonsense that I had to when looking at Ubuntu 13.10, that is, to manage users and groups, I had to separately

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gnome-system-tools
to get the tool to assign myself to the vboxuser group. It was painful.... Regardless, I'm just sticking with Mint for everyday usage and only play with some other distros for 'virtual' fun.
Great job... :D

I agree it is a very fine release. The only problem I had with it is that it will not connect to my bluetooth IHome speakers. I think this is a Linux problem as it seems everyone has this issue. Perhaps in the future Clem might look into this and get it working in LM. Other than that this is going to be an awesome release. I am already recommending it to friends and family.

Hello I read somewhere on this forum than Petra Cinnamon was a memory eater and put your system slow...

Well I checked again with my pendrive and openned 2 works area with Office calc, FF,Office writer,Banshee software manager etc about 10 packages and I would say
it's faster than Mate 15.
My basic configuration , bellow.
Thanks to the great job.
