Building Wine on 64bit Linux Mint Debian
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 20, 2012
Recently, I decided to build 32-bit wine on 64-bit Linux Mint Debian. I have installed all of the relevant development packages that it seems to require, such as ia32-libs-dev and other 32-bit development libraries, but I still get this when building:
configure:17122: OpenCL 32-bit development files not found, OpenCL won't be supported.
configure:17122: gstreamer-0.10 base plugins 32-bit development files not found, gstreamer support disabled
configure:17122: OSS sound system found but too old (OSSv4 needed), OSS won't be supported.
configure:17122: libgsm 32-bit development files not found, gsm 06.10 codec won't be supported.
configure:17132: WARNING: libjpeg 32-bit development files not found, JPEG won't be supported.
I got the most recent files from the git repositories as well. The 64-bit build seems to go smoothly.
Can somebody help to point me in the right direction here, please?
Installing Linux Mint 13 64 bit dual boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 3, 2012
I have just downloaded Linux Mint 13 Mate 64 edition bit and burnt it onto a DVD and want to dual boot with Windows 7. I have also downloaded and printed the Official user guide, but embarrassed to admit I do not understand the instructions. I have two drives a C and a D both are Samsung 150 GB drives and wish to use the C drive as the dual boot. On page 14 of the guide it describes how to install when you get to Installation Type there two options (1) Erase disc and install Linux Mint (2) Something Else, which I have clicked on and there is the problem as it shows both drives but not annotated as C or D but a jumble of numbers and letters. Would the top of the listed two be what I would know as the C drive and the second be the D drive?(or will it not Matter) Once I know which is which I think I will be able to partition and install by following the instructions. I am thinking of having a partition of 30GB for Linux would that be enough. also on my D drive I have my music collection w
Trouble installing Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit using Wubi inside Windows 7 64 bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 17, 2011
I have searched all day through these forums so that I would not have to post a topic that has already been answered. Unfortunately I was unable to find a solution so now I am posting this here.
I recently attempted to install Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit inside Windows 7 Pro 64 bit using Wubi and was given the error "No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu." which was given to me in an infinite loop and the only way out was to quit the installation which brought me to the Live demo that I assume was mounted, considering I never burned a CD. I have attached the results.txt from when I ran the boot info script from http://bootinfoscript.sourceforge.net/
If anyone could help clarify why I might be getting this error it would be much appreciated. I will continue to look for solutions while waiting for a response as well. Thanks for your time.
Edit: It would appear that an old Ubuntu 9.10 installation is still on my larger drive which is co
Graphics acceleration not working on Acer Aspire One 722 using Linux Mint 10 Julia
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 11, 2011
I recently bought an Acer Aspire One 722 and installed Linux Mint on it. Everything is working well except for the graphics card; I am stuck in Vesa mode. I tried installing the proprietary fglrx driver but it didn't work; aticonfig says "aticonfig: No supported adapters detected". Googleing says that this graphics card is on the supported list. Any idea how to get it working?

How to save session and installed programs to hardrive using Linux Mint Live CD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 1, 2012
Isnt there a way with linux live cd's, to save the live cd session, and also to save any games that ive installed with Mint's software manager, to the computers HDD?
So E.g - I dont want to install flash plugins everytime i boot from the live CD to watch youtube, or install a video codec etc over again, or game that I installed with software manager.
wanna save it ALL to hardrive!
ALSO last simple question:
If I want to install Mint Linux (or ubuntu or whatever) properly along side on a windows 7 computer.. Is it as simple as:
- creating a new partition
- installing ubuntu to that new partition
Than done? I can select windows 7 or Linux at startup?
or is it more complicated than that?

Installing linux mint on a macbook air?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 14, 2012
I am considering buying an ultrabook in the near future for when I go to university. The best product that I have found so far seems to be the macbook air, with the 13 inch screen. It has the best features for its price and in my opinion it looks the best. However, I only ever use linux mint, so I was wondering how difficult it would be to wipe ALL of the apple software and start from scratch with mint.
Basically, I do not need any remnants of OSX on it - I would like it to simply boot straight to linux mint, like my other laptop which I bought with windows on it. I have read stories of people using rEFIt and other software to install linux on it, and that sounds a bit dodgy to me.
If I was to boot to a live mint thumbdrive and delete all the partitions on the SSD, then install mint over the whole drive, what would happen? Would it boot correctly? Also, what is the hardware support like in linux for a macbook air?
Thanks for any information anyone can provide!
