Got Debian 64 installed

Postby rdonnelly » Sat Jan 08, 2011 7:16 pm

After using mint for a couple of years it was time to get a 64 bit PC. I went with the Levovo A700 ideacentre all in one PC. I has quad core, 4 gb ram and plenty to spare with Linux. When I got it I demoed the windoze 7 for about 5 minutes, that was all I could take. Then I put in the LMDE 64 dvd and got busy. Seems I accidentally installed on the windoze partition? Oh well, no great loss. :roll: Any ways this is an awsome OS, windoze 7 ran about as fast as mint did on my 5 year old PC.

I had some problems with the wireless but I figured that out, with a link I found here to the Debian wiki.

At this point I have two problems.

1 if I suspend I lose the Wi Fi, and have to do a reboot to get it back. Is there a work around for this on a Broadcam internal Wi Fi, or a command that will bring the Wi Fi back up?

2 I used the backup tool to move my old mint 10 files to my new LMDE home, and now they all have lock icons on them, I tried sudo chown 744 /home/bob now home is giving nautilus errors.

Well, any help appreciated.

Bob

When I have to set ownerships and permissions I do these too thing. they might help you.. I like getting full access to all my files so

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R username:username /media/name of disk or uuid


I take ownership

Code: Select all

sudo chmod -R 755 /media/name of disk or uuid


I set permissions
