But as soon as I get everything set up, the network won't work. Can't find any pages on FF, and cannot find updates or software through the package manager.
I've been running Mint 9 LXDE for a long time with no problem, and the original LMDE worked fine for me except that it wouldn't update. I really would like to get to know LMDE, but I can never seem to get it to work. I am posting this from my LXDE partition.
Inxi -F if it helps:
