Glaring bugs

Post by RedLeg »

Bugs, bugs, bugs..... Holy crap, I really thought that the Mint team had polished all the Natty bugs. Hasn't happened yet. Music player is totally off, right click is non functional, can't move multiple files to the trash, USB mounting is buggy,,,,,, all this is really too bad because Mint really is the best game in town.

I'm afraid I have to agree with you on this. I also find 11 a bit too buggy. I'm having trouble with Bluetooth and touchpad scrolling. To be fair, I've done some checking around and these faults seem to be common to all the latest releases such as Ubuntu 11.04 & Fedora 15.

I'm sticking with Mint 10 until they get resolved. I'd rather run an older version that works 100% than the latest one that only works 90%.

Am a newb ... and o course don't have to do any of the work. For that matter couldn't do any of the work. Mint HQ, knows more about making great software than I ever will. I blame ubuntu ... Though guess buntu isn't twisting Mint's arm to make them keep churning out releases in tandem with them, shrugs.

Feel the same about Linux Mint as many people. Like them and think they are talented software developers. Anyone who can make ubuntu useful ... Must be extremely talented imo, lol.

Though seems like Mint is inheriting buntu's tendency to release software whether it's ready or not. Even if it's crawling with bugs ... Sure even if it's buggy as all get out. Mint 11 puts to shame any OS I could make though. ;)

I must be the exception to the rule.

I have Mint 11 on a laptop and it is working flawlessly. I have not encountered any of the bugs mentioned..

No complaints here.............

I have installed Mint 11 on a total of 9 systems now.

4 in house personal PC,s

2 desktop and 1 netbook and 1 laptop

The rest are all clients systems.

The only bugs I have noticed are the same silly crap I wish they would fix already. Like Gnome apps not loading on startup.

Other then that, mint 11 has been far more stable for me the Ubuntu 11.04 has been.

Sure seems like it is more refined to me.

Just a little FYI - upgrading the kernel from 2.6.38-8 to 2.6.38-9 helped some to.

Ok, wow, sorry. This is why (too much) beer and forums don't mix. I don't clearly remember posting this, but oh well. I think I was on a notorious image board earlier that night and got all angsty. What a dumb post. :?
