the 12.04 LTS is almost out and this should be a safe move to upgrade for stability.
It get released on the 28th of this month and I will be running it on 2 rigs. Will upgrade the one running 11.04 (clean install of course) and also Move my other s939 from win xp to it.
ok, so i take back some of what i said about unity. ive been running it on a mini pc for a week and although there is some graphical lag time it isnt bad after some updates. plus, i disabled the composite window manager so that i dont get tearing graphics when watching movies/tv,etc.
Mad Shot, I hope you know now that when i get my Uber3200 built, I'm coming to you for answers about this and about Mint!
LOL I am here buddy.
Here's a older screenie from my Ubuntu cruncher.
I need help!!
Ok in my P4 cruncher machine, I have loaded up Mint. The RJ45 wired connection doesn't work, although it did when I was loading the OS and then it quit.
I searched high and low for an answer to this, ran a billion things trough the Terminal and posted results, re-typed word for word, on various forums and concluded that it actually died or, Mint is somehow to blame. Either way, I decided to go wireless with a USB 802.11 g Belkin, that a friend here so generously sent me (Norton, Thanks!).
Now, after spending the last two hours trying to configure it, the wireless will not connect.
I have a new NetGear N600 sitting not four feet away. I set it up under wireless connections-with the settings:
Infastructure, empty BSSID, a MAC setting it chose, and WPA2 Personal w/ correct password.
I don't know what to do to make it work, I'm a TOTAL Newb to Linux. I wanted to try it out because, I've been told, it is more efficient at crunching. I read some things and decided to go with the latest Distro of Mint, supposedly it's got the best of Ubuntu in a user friendly interface. It looks good but, can't get it to fire up a connection!
Can somebody help me out here?
Hey Arjai- didn't see this message til' now (glad that wireless got to you OK ). Try to PM Mad Shot to see if he can walk you through setting up your connection
