As I've mentioned I've made the plunge to Linux. Running Ubuntu 11.10 on my new computer I just built. Need to do a post on it. The old computer for now has gone out to the garage with a spare monitor. I'm also now running Ubuntu on it till I get another hard drive then I'll set it up to dual boot Windows. Also kicked around the idea of turning it into a server.
For now I'm going to use it to test run different Linux distros. First up is Mint 12. I've read how elegant & user friendly it is so worth the try. I downloaded the iso & made a bootable usb. FYI wicked easy in Linux.
Go to boot it & get:
Vesamenu.c32 not a com32r
WTF? You ask. Well me too. Since Google is a new Linux user best friend I googled the error. Once again Google FTW!
Turns out its a problem with the distro. I found A way to fix the code but didn't feel like screwing up my copy.
But there is an easy fix. When the above error comes up type: LIVE
yep that easy. Now I'm in full Mint 12 trial mode. So far so good. Good enough I might switch or dual boot it with Ubuntu to really mess with Amber.
