So sorry to hear that Mark is gone, he was always so friendly and helpful.
Having people like him here is one of the main reasons that I've basically stuck with Peppermint since the days of Peppermint ICE.

He will be missed, he touched all of our lives. Condolences to the family.

Welcome, I've tried different distros and stopped hopping when I found Peppermint.

Also started out with a netbook, good times.

It's light and fast. Two things I can't say of any Microsoft OS.

Welcome Fred.justFred!

Also started using Linux from an EeePC! Then I got a Lenovo S10e netbook. Haven't seen a netbook for sale (locally in ages).

Hope you enjoy the forum!

I would try P10 on your machine, but I would not be very hopeful.

Welcome back!

I don't know how to solve the issue, but wanted you to know that you are welcome here.

Thanks for sharing, I want to get one within the next few months.

Not sure if I need to do anything special to it for it to not wear out quicker than normal.

Welcome Dave!

Peppermint can be whatever you need it to be, cloud based with Ice or install your apps locally.

Without badmouthing Mint, can I ask what made you consider Peppermint?

To judge a distro on theme alone does not make sense. It is incredibly easy to customize, and you should customize it if YOU do not like it.

I still believe that Peppermint is the best (based on Ubuntu) distro out there. Easy to use, to add apps and to customize.

From a Linux perspective there isn't a feature I can think of that I don't have access to.

Haters and Trolls need to find stuff to hate on.

So I managed to delete the partition Peppermint 8 was on, chose "Something else" during install and preserved my dual boot.

Weird thing, the UCT Ubuntu server (the server in Cape Town, South Africa) is the slowest I have seen to date. It took 15 minutes to download 15 MB of updates. It took longer to download the updates, than it did to install Peppermint 10.

Changed to a different server after install and much better now.

Thanks very much for the conky tutorial. I really wanted to try it out, but it seemed a little scary until I read this.

I'm new to linux so this really helped me out  ;D
Glad you liked it, Conky can be as intricate or simple as you want it to be. There is so much you can do with it, that I only scratch the surface of what is possible really.

Thank you for being patient, I've been very sick these past few days. Here is the output reuqested:

Changed to OpenDns and now I can access the Peppermint site and forum from my dsl connection at home again 8)

Hi, sorry it's been so long. I can't access the Peppermint website or forum from my ISP at home. Just says page not found. Every other website I have tried works.

Will use my phone as a Hotspot and try again  8)

Thanks, will post the output soonest.
Working today.

The grub menu shows Peppermint to boot from by default, and also shows Windows 10.

So I managed to dual boot and haven't upgraded Peppermint 8, partly because it ran so well and partly because I didn't have or make the time to do so.

I'm going to backup my data tomorrow, then try to "upgrade" to Peppermint 10.

I currently have the following partitions:

Windows 10
/Peppermint (can't remember if it's / or /home)
/swap (6 GB)

If I delete my Peppermint partition and create a new partition and install Peppermint 10 alongside Windows 10, then all should (hopefully) be fine?  8)

 8) congrats guys on a job well done.

Going to download and test, soon I'm going to post in the install thread to ask for advice on how to install Peppermint 10 over the Peppermint 8 in my dual boot setup.
