Netbooks / Upgrading from Peppermint Two to Peppermint Three
« on: November 18, 2012, 04:58:51 pm »

I've been running Peppermint Two on my Acer Aspire for a while now and want to upgrade to Peppermint Three. Is there an upgrade option or is it a case of building from the ground up again?



Netbooks / Peppermint/Windows 7 share
« on: February 17, 2012, 04:20:10 pm »

I'm trying to set up a share between my PC (Windows7) and my AA1 (Peppermint).

My PC (W7) is already shared between two other W7 machines and also my old Xp laptop and it can see the AA1 on the network, but I can't access files on my AA1 from my PC.

I've installed 'system-config-samba' from the Software Manager on my AA1, but I'm obviously missing something because I can't get it to share.

Also, I have a printer plugged into my PC (W7). Again, it's shared to the other machines. Can I also share it to my AA1?

Netbooks / PeppermintOS Two vs Fedora 16
« on: February 16, 2012, 02:56:08 pm »

I'm all set to update my AA1 to Peppermint Two (USB sorted, Peppermint already test driven), but before I do, I was wondering what the general feeling was about Fedora 16?  Is it a viable alternative to Peppermint? Or would the AA1 struggle with Fedora 16? Are they vastly different?

Thanks  ;)

Netbooks / Installing Peppermint TWo
« on: February 15, 2012, 06:50:02 pm »

I'm following the instructions for installing Peppermint Two onto my AA1.

So far, I've downloaded the Peppermint ISO and created a bootable USB, but when I try to fire up my AA1 from the USB, the screen opens on a black screen with the following white text at the top: SYSLINUX 4.04 EDD 2011-04-18 Copyright (c) 1994-2011.

My AA1 doesn't progress past this message.  Am I doing something wrong?

Netbooks / Acer Aspire One Linpus Lite - Firefox 2 restore
« on: February 03, 2012, 06:21:18 pm »
Help!  I'm completely out of my depth here.

I recently upgraded the default Firefox browser that came installed on my Acer to Firefox v10 (following the excellent foolproof steps on this forum btw), but since then my netbook freezes or locks up when I open the browser.  This has only happened since I upgraded Firefox, so I'm thinking I need to wind back to the default version - version 2.  Would I be right?  And if so, any ideas on how I'd do this???
