I'll make a note to explain our minimum specs a little better, but really this shouldn't be down to us .. the other distros should have sensible minimums in the first place, and the tech press should know better than to list distros by nonsense claims.

Great to see your old Dell performing so well VinDSL, shows what **can** be achieved .. just not in 256MB RAM :)

If you can get into the BIOS, can't you just change the boot order in there, putting USB as the first boot device ?

Now I'm convinced it's a keyboard issue. As I mentioned, none of the F keys do anything and the F4 key worked once but not again. Could this be a need to unplug the keyboard and plug it back in like we do with ram memory? I guess I'll have to investigate dismantling this laptop

Yeah HotBot was from a simpler time .. pity it died though, I always considered its results better than Googles and the other big search engines (at least back then).

IIRC Samsungs usually have either Esc, F10, or F12 set as the boot device selection key .. but you might have to disable "Fast BIOS Mode" in the BIOS first.
Are you saying that if you run:
Code: [Select]
google-chrome --app=
in a terminal that Chrome doesn't open at this forum ?
(because it should)

I ran a full update request this morning and whilst nothing came down - I had no errors. Weird.

Hi folks!

I think PCNetSpec's comments about minimum requirements need to be consolidated, edited to remove the names of the guilty and placed prominently on the PeppermintOS homepage so that not only prospective visitors but also reviewers (although this is being wildly optimistic  ::) ) read it! I am sure that at least some will get the point -- and it is (IMHO) a very important point to make.  ;)
