Re: Mint, XaAES with Jinnee

>I have many questions but let's start there.

Yes, yes you do :).

>Ok I need some help with installing Mint. I want a full blown mint setup. Not some hacked up or watered down version.

If were going to be a pedantic linux hippie I'd stop my reply here and tell you that since mint is simply a kernel, a full blown mint setup will consist of sticking the kernel in the auto folder and a couple of drivers in the mint folder and that's it. But I won't ;).

> What files will I need???

ALL OF THEM! (joking :))

> Any recommendations on how to do a fresh install on a completely fresh setup.

If you want to do a complete fresh install without the pains of doing everything by hand, there are a few choices fortunately:

EasyMiNT: http://atari.st-katharina-apotheke.de/home.php?lang=en&headline=EasyMiNT&texte=easymint
uMiNT: http://mikro.naprvyraz.sk/download.htm
VanillaMiNT: http://atari.nvg.org/VanillaMiNT/

Personally, I'd go for easymint and build on top of it. But I dunno, you might want to try the others too, see what looks better for you.

(Just for completion I'll just paste this link here https://sites.google.com/site/emaappsarch/operating-system/os/easyaramintbeta2operatingsystemimagesforaranym which sounds very close to what I perceive you're asking - a full blown mint + tons of apps ready and set up. BUT.... it's built around aranym so I'm not sure about the implications. They're probably minor -just remove a couple of drivers I suppose- but I've not tested it on real hardware myself and it might be a LOT of hassle. So beware, here be dragons and all that stuff...)

> I am planning on using this on my second Falcon that will have a CT63, etherNAT and I am hoping the CTPCI. I want to do install this onto a compact flash card setup. Any sites or tips anyone can give me would be appreciated.

See above, unless you mean something else here.

> I have been not working on my Atari as much as I should.

Yes. (and that goes for pretty much all of us ;)).

> I really want to get back into this strong and heavy!!!

You go, guy :).

> What cards are able to work on the CTPCI??? I read somewhere about the fact that the CTPCI has a faster IDE port, is this true and is it functional???

Pass - don't have one. Any other takers?

Message board and comments are now read-only

Due to abuse of the message boards we have put the entire site in read-only mode. That means you can't post new threads or reply to old messages and you can't add comments in VideoDB and PicDB.

Some messages have been erased from reading, but are stored in case they need to surface again.

After 17 years and 45000 messages we're shutting down due to one person.
