Re: Home partition on seperate drive

I also want a separate /home partition on a separate drive and to be honest I find it very strange that a modern OS does not have the possibility to just set it up during install. Why chose a different type of installer when there are so many who can do this so easy. Now, with all respect to ScottQ...

Hi, during upgrade I wasn't able to resist to type "apt-get upgrade", "apt-get dist-upgrade" and "reboot"; then I changed the desktop wallpaper with a Solydxk one and everything works fine now...

Re: UP 2013.04.06 12:00 UTC

Break off the upgrade process if you haven't already done that. Just don't log off or shut down the pc. I'm still busy uploading, so wait until I post here and blog that I'm done. Lesson learned from this first time: With my internet speed it's obvious I have to change the process. This really take...

Re: options during installation

Thanks CjTX2. I hope I understand what you are saying. You want the best of both. Freedom to choose what goes into install and ease of operation after. I agree with you, too... This is exactly what I mean but you say it better than me (it's my poor English)! ...With time I believe more things will b...

Re: options during installation

What do you think about more possibilities to choose during installation: to create root and normal user with their own passwords (option in Debian) and not only sudo user (Ubuntu/Mint way); I felt this is not necessary. If you wish to enable root account, I think just two commands would do: sudo -...

options during installation

since using Linux I performed a lot of installations with different distros (Slackware and RH even before KDE, Mandrake/Mandriva, Kubuntu, Mepis, Fox, and others that I don't remember...), now I'm coming from Debian with a very brief passage through LMDE specially for plugins; I believe that I'm bec...

Re: upgrading from unofficial LMDE KDE UP6

I'd like to see the auto option tested on everybody with a sound card issue. If that is a quick fix, I love it! 8-) my experience: in etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf on SolydXK there is the line "options snd-hda-intel model=generic", in LMDE KDE it wasn't and I had to add it manually and then configu...

Re: upgrading from unofficial LMDE KDE UP6

Good to hear, and you haven't done anything special to accomplish that? just nothing, everything works fine on my system! On LMDE KDE UP6 this was really a problem, it was necessary to configure sound system, this using alsamixer after a long Google search; I had the same problem with another pc wi...
