Multiple Issues - going back to xp

Postby warlock554 » Sat Oct 18, 2008 5:30 am

I've just installed Linux Mint Elyssa and have some issues:
1) Sound - It works, but I hear some constant noise/ crackling in the background.
2) Unable to mount flash drives. I get a 'Invalid mount option when attempting to mount' error.
3) Choppy scrolling with Opera/Firefox.

Welcome to Mint
Please tell us which edition (main, 64bit, KDE.....)
Please tell us which hardware you have - run lspci in a terminal to find out
Question 1 is a hard nut to crackle - sorry crack :) (couldn't help it :))
Question 3 leads us to the question do you have the right drivers for your video card?
Question 2 Flash drives should mount when you connect them (USB - right?) but if you try to mount them with the mount command without proper preparations you get that error (you have to mount any drive in an existing folder unless you use pmount which is what is used for removable drives)

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I tried installing the Ati drivers for my card, but it failed to recognize the card after rebooting. But it doesn't matter now that I'm going back to XP.

If you are not going to even accept help, and are going back to Windows regardless of the help any one offers, why did you bother to post?

Good day to you sir.

paourismp: my advice is you might want to start your own thread about this problem so that someone like Husse will spot it and try to help you out.

On the last item (sorry I can't help with the first 2...) there is an add on for Firefox that allows smooth scrolling. If you go to the add ons page I'm sure you will find it.
