My Linux is always using some space on the swap file, even if its just 2 MB ... I guess that´s what you are talking about?

This is a good link. I did an Babelfish translation:

"Here they will be able to find a detailed explanation about how distributing the partitions of the hard disk."

I am wondering, if I will install the RC1 of the KDE CE, will I be able to upgrade simple to the final version later on, or will I need to reinstall my entire OS?

Thanks in advance :)

RC to final will be able to be done by package upgrade.

Unless you love installing fresh every time.

As this is a debian based distro, the answer should be yes with no equivocation. But, I would do it final to final, not final to rc to final, but that is my paranoia.

I am so thankful for the LinuxMint Team. I am 2 years into Linux and have tried many flavors of Linux of which all did not fair well with my hardware setup for both my custom desktop and custom laptop. While some worked okay I Just found LinuxMint easy to use right out of the box. And, since I am not partial to either Gnome or KDE, I have regularly tried both, but find myself wanting to use KDE more and more, due to the nature of what I use computers for. I am almost completely migrated over from MS Windows, but do not think I will completely let go unless I can find a way to get my QuickVerse Platinum 2010 to work. This is the only app holding me back, mainly because nothing else out there that is free compares to this program; and, I cannot find a Linux version comparable either that is commercial. I recently migrated all my DVD backup software over, which has taken me quite a long time to move away from MeGUI to now Handbrake for Linux. But, I am extremely happy with Linux so far. And, the best part is that LinuxMint has made this transition the most enjoyable out of all the major Distros out there. Best part is, no more crashes, no more blue screens, and no more fuss. LinuxMint just works. Keep up the good work guys. LinuxMint truly is a Gem and I hope will become the standard within the Linux world and community.

My dad had QuickVerse back in the DOS days. He's been using e-Sword for several years and I use it occasionally. I see they have the online version up now (http://live.e-sword.net/). If you google, there seems to be plenty of people who use e-Sword on Linux via Wine. I'm not sure how it stacks up against QuickVerse these days.

Have you tried Wine or VirtualBox? Between the two, they've allowed me to use (almost) all the last remnants of Windows-only software on Linux that I'm still forced to use.

Have a look at Xiphos http://xiphos.org/ It works great. If you are on mint 7 right now, you will have to add ppa to your repo sources, but that website give you a deb file that will do it for you. Just click the download link and it explains it very well. Please check it out. It is worth a try. Once mint 8 KDE comes out, Xiphos is already in the repos. No need to add any ppa's.

They also have a channel on IRC. in freenode #xiphos they can help you on any questions you may have.

Thanks everyone. I will give it a go tomorrow. I would really like to get rid of MS Windows altogether and also not have to give up Quickverse. E-sword is great but the tools in Quickverse are invaluable, especially all the Greek and Hebrew resources to learn the original language and all of the commentaries as well. I just wish R.C. Sproul was a part of the package. Again, thank you for your suggestions, because I truly want to leave Windows and make Mint my only O.S.

Xiphos has everything you need. Greek and Hebrew resources, and several several commentaries.

Funnily enough I gave up Quickverse for Xiphos. For my purposes Xiphos is the superior product- regardless of [substantial] price difference.

A question for Boo?!!!!

Hey, Boo, how does it feel to have totally & irrecoverably lost control of your "Update Announcement Only" thread?!! :lol: 13 pages & still going strong !! :roll:

Oh, well, I've had this little 20Gb empty partition sitting at the front of this machine since late December just waiting for this thread to announce "It is on the mirrors!" I'm sure it will be worth every second of the wait.

That's the announcement I'm waiting for too. While I wait, I'm installing Xiphos. 8)
