Mint Debian is a great release.
The mint team has to figure out a newbee friendly installer, i'm sure, mint will get a solid new user base then.

Maybe. I'm one of those. ;)

I'm assuming KDE will be in the package manager which you can try to install over Mint Debian. For example, (just for fun) I installed KDE over Crunchbang 10 (debian) after some tweaking it runs really well and is quite fast.

If I like it I may stay with this instead of the main edition, hopefully Mint updates and software versions (like Firefox) will be released in tandem with the main version.
Do the developers want feedback and if so where to?

Keep up the good work, it is much appreciated.

Not creating a separate /home partition was a problem seen in the last rejected build, not the "approved" build or at least it wasn't reported as such in the comments at the Community website ("iso image" page under the Testing tab) and that's (supposedly) when paths are for two hard drives--1 for Home and the other for Root and Swap. You could leave a comment on the "Approved for Stable release" post at the Community website. The QA team might still be monitoring it maybe?

lol, place found :) ftp.heanet.ie is on my bookmarks.

Ran the first live-cd session, very briefly and everything looks great, fast, light.

Tomorrow with more time, i will give it a go installing and if i can configure the wireless properly i will change my signature.

Ikey, I saw your note on the Community page:

"People have .. obtained.. the ISO pre-announcement.

I'm hearing a bug whereby the installer sits at "Cleaning apt" and stops doing anything

after. Bar goes back and forth and nothing happens. One guy reported "No Operating System installed"

from boot"

I too had this but after say 15 mins, I hit quit and restarted....I was able to boot up fine. When I tried to d/l the latest updates it told me to run the dpkg --configure -a command. I did and recvd this:

Code: Select all

 sudo dpkg --configure -a
Processing triggers for menu ...
Setting up initramfs-tools (0.97.2) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils ...
Processing triggers for man-db ...
Processing triggers for gnome-menus ...
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...

W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl8168d-2.fw for module r8169
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl8168d-1.fw for module r8169
updates are still downloading but seems ok.....

It is what worked for me - system appears to be fully operational so far.

Kill the installer when it freezes up and reboot the system.
Log in normally and open up a terminal.
Run sudo dpkg --configure -a
This should fix the issue with the live-installer and the cleaning APT bug.

Ah...interesting....then again...couldn't they just put boo's packages over the debian base...i realize you could add the kde packages yourself...but then you would have a mix of the two systems...I think it be a bit nicer to have a pure kde debian version released as well...that would function like his Mint 9 KDE except have the debian based rolling release instead of kubuntu 10.04 underneath...
I'm kind of a computer "amateur" and not good at "tweaking" :wink:
