Hello From Arkansas, US

Postby PyoD » Mon Apr 08, 2013 6:43 pm

Hello All!

I just installed Mint 14 w/ Cinnamon on my old Intel P2.

What i learned:

Install Plops to your MBR if you want to Install from USB.
USE the Universal USB installer from pendrivelinux to install your ISO to your USB(Pendrive)
-when it hangs on the vesa.c32 file press <tab> then type live and hit enter. It will take a few moments but will boot

What I've yet to learn:
-How to complete my installation of LAMP. Any advice? i got webserverpuppy but i have no idea how to use this.
-Is there any way to set my screen resolution to 640x480? i only have 256 ram on this machine.

Why I picked Linux Mint:
Need a GUI environment to re-learn linux. My last distro was fedora core 4 :oops: I mainly interested in creating a small private server for testing my scripts, and eventually i plan to run my own servers and host several corporate websites for my families business.

Welcome aboard! :P

As for LAMP, here is a tutorial: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/486 (it was last edited a year ago so...)

Welcome to the Mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
