It's nice to be home
« on: April 06, 2020, 12:10:46 pm »
Jestereric here, Peppermint user since v.1/Ice.

For a variety of (mostly work related) reasons, I haven't been able to keep current. I had PM5 on my ASUS 900 and it's been fine. LTS is a lovely thing.

But with everything on lockdown and being able to telework, I figured it was time to jump back in.

So, some things that happen when you don't work within a linux/command line environment for a while. You forget stuff.

Like, take out the live USB before you hit the restart (that jacked my system, whoops)
Also, remember how to set permissions
  :-[

Three install attempts, and PM Ten is now moving along on my EEEPC 900HD. Nice to see it all up to date, and it's never going to be fast, but it's lovely.

And so, it was nice to come back here, see some familiar names. (Absolutely gutted to see of Mark's passing. That was a brutal note to find in the forum). I don't know if I'll get to be as active as I was before, but it's nice to come back.

Thanks, folks.

Yeah VinDSL, love this EEEPC. Will be sad when there's no more 32bit support.
