Oh it's never accepted the Return to remove the Default Key for the wireless network correction! :( Just constantly demands a password!

Just got connected with the wired facility! :)

OK, bobo isn't an administrator so can't run that command .. you'll need to log off, then log back on to the savs account, then run that command.

Catch you tomorrow .. goodnight :)

@rjm65

Good idea .. thanks for the reminder :)



@AuroraMagic

Just to be sure your PC can handle Peppermint 5 (I'm 99.9% sure it can, but best to check), can you open a terminal and run this command:
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep pae
and tell me if there's any output that starts with
flags:
and contains the phrase
pae
?

Hint -

On a GB keyboard the symbol | is Shift+\

Nope .. if pae is in the list then your CPU can handle Peppermint Five's PAE kernel :)

Anyway .. have you got downloaded the peppermint ISO image to your Windows PC ?

If not, get it from here and save it somewhere you can easily find it (like your Windows desktop):
http://peppermintos.com/iso/Peppermint-5-20140623-i386.iso

Let me know when youu have that on the Windows PC (or if you already do)
