Netbooks / Re: Acer Aspire One blank screen at power on
« on: October 21, 2012, 02:46:22 pm »
I just thought it would reset the password after reading this.

Anyway do you know what the cause of this black screen is?

I also had the blank screen problem today, how strange! First I thought I had a doorstep but then I downloaded the files then flashed the bios and it worked, but the bios supervisor password was still the same so does this reset the bios or not?

Netbooks / [SOLVED] Screen Resolution
« on: September 30, 2012, 10:21:13 am »
Hi I connected by Acer aspire one to an LG19LS4D. The highest resolution that can be selected in the monitor settings is 1024x768. I know that both the netbook and TV can support a higher resolution than this. i also tried connecting to another monitor and this allowed me to select 1280x768. So is there any way I can force a resolution when I connect to my LG?. I am running peppermint OS3

Its all fixed I mounted , ran os prober then updated grub. Maybe you can post a tutorial for dual boot now? I'm sure alot of people would find that useful.

It worked! Thank you for your time. The only reason I wanted to keep linpus was If there was some kind of hardware incompatibility with peppermint but everything is working fine anyways.

The reason it said
Code: [Select]
mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt/linpus': File exists
is because I tried the whole thing twice. So making another mount point wont work.

EDIT:

Do you think it is because the peppermint partition is ext4 and linpus is ext2?

It does not mount i get this output:

Code: [Select]
sanish@AcerAspireOne ~ $ sudo mkdir /mnt/linpus 
[sudo] password for sanish:
mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt/linpus': File exists
sanish@AcerAspireOne ~ $ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/linpus
mount: /dev/sda1: more filesystems detected. This should not happen,
       use -t <type> to explicitly specify the filesystem type or
       use wipefs(8) to clean up the device.

mount: you must specify the filesystem type
sanish@AcerAspireOne ~ $ ls -a /mnt/linpus
.  ..
sanish@AcerAspireOne ~ $

the grub menu now shows up but linpus is not an option. There is peppermint, peppermint recovery, and two memtests or something.

Quick question:
Do you get a grub menu at boot with Peppermint listed but no Linpus?

No it just goes straight into peppermint

Netbooks / [SOLVED]Dual booting Peppermint and Linpus problems
« on: September 29, 2012, 09:27:40 am »
Hi I tried to make a dual boot with pepper mint and linpus on my AA1. I did this by shrinking the linpus partition and installing peppemint in the free space. Now the problem is that I cant boot into linpus, there is no option to do so. I think I need to edit something in grub but I dont know what. I'd appreciate it if someone could help.
