Good find. :D

Doesn't want to boot as ISO via grub2.

Code: Select all

set isofile="/path/to/lmde3.iso"
loopback loop $isofile
linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz boot=live iso-scan/filename=$isofile noeject toram
initrd (loop)/live/initrd.lz
Gonna have to find an empty (or erasable) flash drive to try this on.

Managed to play with the LMDE 3 Beta 64-bit Live USB for 5 minutes.

No problems so far. First impressions: it flies on my circa 2013 netbook (i3-3227U, 4GB RAM). Seems even faster than Mint 19 if that's possible. Been using 18.3 Cinnamon primarily but will switch to LMDE 3 for a while after it's installed.

I tried an install to a USB drive last night. It won't boot :?: Setup took over and hour also. Something goofy happened. I'll try it again.
