Mint 3.0 Beta 012

Filed under
Ubuntu

I like Ubuntu. A lot. This was not always the case. I like Mint even better. It fixes many of the things I do not like about Ubuntu, such as the color/sound schemes, and adds good stuff like MintWifi.

The IBM T41 was running Fedora Core 6 for the purposes of the Linuxworld lab. After I was back, caught up on sleep, and had time at night to experiment, I laid down Mint 2.2, then took the Ubuntu 7.04 upgrade. This requires booting into single user mode, cd'ing to "/home", and running the command "chmod -R steve:steve steve" to get the Fedora created 'steve' home directory moved to the UID the Ubuntu created for that user name. Really: why can't "install" figure that out?

The point of the Mint / Ubuntu mash on the formerly FC6 T41 was that I am interested in a few things about Evolution and the way that it upgrades between versions (in this case, 2.8 to 2.10, and between totally different distros). When that experiment was done (and some things about Evolution I have recently learned will be in a different post soon) The release of the first Beta of Mint 3.0 was conveniently out.

Full Post.
