Written by Clem on Friday, December 24th, 2010 @ 7:57 am | Main Topics

Linux Mint Debian (201012/201101)

What a better time than Christmas to bring all the best from 2010 into an updated release of Linux Mint Debian.

  • All Mint 10 features
  • 64-bit support
  • Performance boost (using cgroup, the notorious “4 lines of code better than 200″ in user-space)
  • Installer improvements (multiple HDDs, grub install on partitions, swap allocation, btrfs support)
  • Better fonts (Using Ubuntu’s libcairo, fontconfig and Ubuntu Font Family) and language support (ttf-wqy-microhei, ttf-sazanami-mincho, ttf-sazanami-gothic installed by default)
  • Better connectivity and hardware support (pppoe, pppoeconf, gnome-ppp, pppconfig, libgl1-mesa-dri, libgl1-mesa-glx, libgl1-mesa-dev, mesa-utils installed by default)
  • Better sound support (addressing conflicts between Pulse Audio and Flash)
  • Updated software and packages

If you’re new to LMDE, welcome to Linux Mint Debian. Enjoy the release, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!

LMDE in brief

  • Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a rolling distribution based on Debian Testing.
  • It’s available in both 32 and 64-bit as a live DVD with a Gnome desktop.
  • The purpose of LMDE is to look identical to the main edition and to provide the same functionality while using Debian as a base.

FAQ

1. Is LMDE compatible with Ubuntu-based Linux Mint editions?

No, it is not. LMDE is compatible with Debian, which isn’t compatible with Ubuntu.

2. Is LMDE fully compatible with Debian?

Yes, 100%. LMDE is compatible with repositories designed for Debian Testing or Debian Squeeze.

3. What is a rolling distribution?

LMDE constantly receives updates. Its ISO images are updated now and then but users do not require to re-install it on their systems.

4. How does LMDE compare to the Ubuntu-based editions?

Pros:

  • You don’t need to ever re-install the system. New versions of software and updates are continuously brought to you.
  • It’s faster and more responsive than Ubuntu-based editions.

Cons:

  • Although it’s using Romeo for unstable packages, LMDE continuously changes as it receives updates and new software. Compared to a frozen version of Linux Mint which changes very little once it’s publicly released, it’s not as stable. Things are likely to break more often but fixes can also come quicker. For this reason, LMDE requires a deeper knowledge and experience with Linux, dpkg and APT.
  • Debian is a less user-friendly/desktop-ready base than Ubuntu. Expect some rough edges.
5. Will it come with KDE or other desktops?

The decision wasn’t made yet. When it’s fully on par with the Main Edition and if there is a demand for it, further editions will come for LMDE.

Additional notes:

  • About the installer: The live installer is developed from scratch with Debian in mind. It’s configurable and it can be re-used by other Debian-based distributions. We noticed a lack in live technologies and in live Debian installers, so we’re happy to take the lead on this. If you’re a developer and you’re interested in using it, have a look at its source repository and don’t hesitate to contact us so we can help you fork it and merge upcoming changes between our two projects.
  • About bugs: Please use Launchpad for bug reports.
  • About the media: It comes as a liveDVD. Locales work differently in Debian and the package base requires more space. We made LMDE compatible with unetbootin though, so you can install it using a USB stick.
  • Dedicated chat room: #linuxmint-debian is open to LMDE users on irc.spotchat.org.

Download links:

Our forums go down regularly these days due to an increase in traffic and activity within the community. Our servers couldn’t deal at all with the recent release of Linux Mint 10 and this made it hard for many people to download the ISO files the day of the release.

    About the servers maybe you should only publish torrents on day one?

  14. Cezar Says:

    Thank you for this great Christmas gift.
    Happy holidays!

  15. nghiavd Says:

    Maybe the question about 64 bit version should be removed now?

  16. 7Voo Says:

    Whats the difference between the original Mint 10 and the debian version ?

    Great news in this month

    thanks Mint Team

  20. André Ericson Says:

    Wouldn’t be better to take off the ‘Will it come in 64-bit?’ on the 5th faq since there is a 64bit now?

  21. Mikheil Says:

    Thanks a lot to all Linux Mint team. Great job and keep it up. Marry Xmas! to Linux Mint team, All Linux Mint users and to everyone.

  26. Keven Says:

    You guys are rock stars, can’t wait to try it out. Merry Christmas to all a good Debian.

  27. chris_debian Says:

    Wow, well done, guys! I’m downloading so that I can seed the torrent.

    I have an existing and up-to-date LMDE installation, is there any reason why I should re-install, or can I keep using my current build?

    Cheers,

    Chris.

  28. mun Says:

    Congrat!
    I love u full…

  29. guus Says:

    Great job guys!

    I have up to date LMDE, should I reinstal it to get all the improvements? especially the sound and performance boost.

  30. Clem Says:

    guus: For the sound you need to add /etc/asound.conf (as described in the forums). For the performance boost, you can follow any tutorial on this written for Debian or Ubuntu.

  31. Wichoso Says:

    Congrats guys! you rock!!

  32. Errol Says:

    I just knew that this is when you would come thru! Thanks team. Enjoy the weekend!

    Hope everyone has a great holiday!

  39. george Says:

    is new LMDE compatible with Intel GMA500 Graphic Card ?

  40. darco Says:

    The “4 lines of code” , is that exclusive to the stock kernel or if I update the the latest Liquorix it would still benefit LMDE?

  41. nithin Says:

    nice try but not innovative but extremely stable, unix rocks. happy xmas btw nice installer also

  42. CarlosPR Says:

    Install in a HP Tablet 2710p after a few adjustments
    everything works great.

    Thanks

  43. mjjzf Says:

    Congratulations – it will be interesting to try.
    Any intention to do a lighter netinstaller? Can’t do DVDs.

  44. golinux Says:

  53. EricJ Says:

    Hi, everyone at LMD 201012 team,

    I have just downloaded 201012, and it looks impressive, however when I try to install it I get as far as disk partion, it then asks me for root/ it is then stalemate as it wont let me go any further, I was expecting it to be like LM-10 where it would have done this for you, and then loaded up automatically.
    As you have probably guessed I am not savvy with programming debien, is there a way around this or a website ?

    EricJ

  54. Johndong Says:

  55. bibimidi Says:

    awesome release just in time for christmas. thanks clem n gang. happy holidays to all mint & lmde lovers. grabbing the torrent now!!!

  56. faffmeister Says:

    Brilliant timing. All my Christmas presents coming early this year: a new laptop and now a brilliant new Debian based linux distro to put on it! Already tried LM10 Live on it with 100% success so here’s hoping LMDE 10 is as good (LMDE 9 didn’t set up the RealTek wireless, while LM10 was classic “It Just Works”).

    Many thanks to all of you and have a great Christmas and New Year.

  57. Duc M. Thai Says:

    Thank you for your hard works, Linux Mint team!!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!!!

  64. ginjabunny Says:

    Great stuff, will give it a go, have been using Mint10 as I had some hardware issues with LMDE before, will see if this release cures some ills.

    MX+HNY to the Mint Team, thanks for all the hard work.

  65. Javi Says:

    Thanks a lot!!! debian + mint rocks! long life to LMDE

  66. Aj Says:

    Thank you Linux mint team for the release, I was eagerly waiting for it.

  67. MysticGold04 Says:

    Merry Christmas to all! I just want to say thank you the Mint Dev team for all of the hard hard work you have done to bring us all of the releases of Mint this year. You all are simply Amazing!!

  68. Kevin Says:

    @darco
    I’m pretty sure the four lines of code was implemented in your bash, so changing kernels wouldn’t affect it. Don’t quote me on it though.

  69. Manuel Says:

    What a great Xmas gift!
    I was wondering… Is there a way I can get some packages more updated? For example Banshee is still at the version 1.6.1 (and i was wondering if there is a way to put 1.8.0 on LMDE without compiling it or waiting for it to go on Testing repos)… There are some other packages in that situation (like Gwibber)… Are there any repos to add?
    Thanks for the reply…
    Thank you for creating Linux Mint! I’ve been using it for 1 year on all my PCs… Really thank you!

  70. paoloschi Says:

    A little issue for me with LMDE (201012) on Acer Aspire 1400 P4 1.7GHz 512Mb:
    after passed the DVD integrity check, I’ve tried both normal and compatibility mode but when boot process leaves textual console, at X starting stage, GDM does not never appear and boot stops.
    Alt+F1…Fn does not gives me possibility to open other consoles, so I think computer really hangs.
    Perhaps an additional kernel parameter could help me?….

    Anyway, thanks for this release! I’m sure that I’ll be able to enjoy soon LMDE in my old laptop! :-D

  71. paoloschi Says:

    I’ve forgot to indicate the video card on Acer Aspire 1440: ATI Mobility Radeon

  72. ehhh Says:

    I have same problem as paoloschi but i have a desktop Pentium D 2x 3.0Ghz
    1Gb ram 667 Gforce 6800GS, when the boot is stoping and the screen is black i have must use hard reset ohh i have boot system with usb stick using :
    Linux live USB and Unetbootin both of those have the same black screen when OS is starting up.

    ps. sorry for my english

  73. nico Says:

    I can’t enjoy LMDE like paoloschi and ehhh. Something is wrong made with ISO image. Any suggestions?

    Merry x-mas to all Linux users out there.

  81. Thom W. Says:

    Thanks Clem and Team. Now I have something to do between Xmas and New Year.
    Currently downloading both torrents, and will seed them as long as I can.
    Happy Holidays to all Mint developers and users.

  82. rt Says:

    “1. Is LMDE compatible with Ubuntu-based Linux Mint editions?

    No, it is not. LMDE is compatible with Debian, which isn’t compatible with Ubuntu.”

    Ubuntu = Debian
    Ubuntu is compatible with debian lol. But hey ubuntu is bloated with social networking garbage incompatible with intelligent people, So i guess the quote is correct…. unless LMDE contains myfacetwitidiotbookspace?

    Either way x86_64 support is a must have, though i probably won’t use it right now.. thanks!

  83. Leksmar Says:

    Thanks,You are the best!!!Merry Christmas and Heppy New Year!:-)

    Is jockey included this time around :) ?

    Running 64 bit right now, haven’t discovered any issues yet, thanks a lot guys.

  87. kami84gr Says:

    You should have started your announcement with “Ho,Ho,Ho!” :P
    Great job people , and thanks for showning that you do pay attention to people’s demands here on the blog!

  88. tdockery97 Says:

    I just couldn’t resist, Clem. Had to try out the 64-bit version and am posting this from the live DVD. Everything seems to work great, so I am going to replace my 32-bit LMDE installation with the 64-bit.

    Congratulations to you and the team on another great release. You all seem to do better when you are rushed than others do taking their time.

  89. Martin Lee Says:

    Nice release Clem :) , what a wonderfull Christmas presents :) ….

  90. RustyTheGreat Says:

    Thank you Mint and Merry Christmas and hope you guys have a great new year, I have been waiting for a 64-bit version. Thanks again. :-)

  91. cra1g321 Says:

    My 1st Christmas present !!!

    Hope this one works with my system, if so it will be main OS ASAP

    Plz use torrents ppl, dont want to overload the servers again ;)

  92. gazza Says:

    lmde64 installed fine :) but opened synaptic (nothing else open) and the search is greyed out, can’t use it :(

  93. Cliff Says:

    There is a problem . I am using 64 bit on a quad core. I chose btrsf as the file system everything went fine until grub went into a loop. I had to manually reboot and then found that my MBR had been deleted and no new one added. I tried my MBR repair disk but it did not recognize btrsf. I reinstalled and reformatted to Ext 4. This worked and gave me a new MBR. So far Debian Mint works fine and seems very nice. Thanks and Merry Christmas.

  94. linuxy Says:

    Hey !

    Great job guys =)

    I’m having the same problem as few users here.. The screen goes black in the middle of installation and nothing happens.. I use a live USB with unetbootin .. I have an old pc as well.. P4, 1G ram, Gforce 7300gs.. But the funny thing is that when I run the ISO-image in virtualbox it loads fine.. So I dont know.. Its either the live.usb-software, or maybe its an issue with old graphic cards (ubuntu had that before)

    Cheers and Merry xmas !!

  95. Paul Says:

    Have 32 bit on an old system with SB-16 sound card. Only Linux I prefer to use that will make sound card work. Now installing LMDE64 on main system to dual boot with U-10.04. WOW!!! Sure installs fast with E3300, 3Gig RAM and pushed to 3.3 GHz.

    Paul

  96. Lollo Says:

    Thanks for your work Clem + Team from Germany.

    I wish you and everyone in the community all over the world a peaceful and nice Christmastime

  98. slowcoach Says:

    Merry Christmas to the amazing Clem and the Mint Developers and all Mint users everywhere.

    Been testing Mint Debian 64bit for almost 12 hours now, I find it awesome.
    Loving every minute and it just flies on my AMD 6 core box, did I say how fast it is … like Mint 10 on steroids.
    Least I can do is send you a donation.
    Many thanks again, you have made an old man very happy.

    Merry Christmas to the Mint team!
    I have already installed, and using Mint 10 (32 bit) on my Dell 600 laptop and everything works fine. I downloaded mint Debian (201012)(32 bit) tonight, and tried to boot my laptop by live CD using both “Linux Mint”,and “Start Linux Mint in compatibility mode”” option from the boot menu. in both cases the bootstrap halted. I also checked the integrity of CD, that looks fine.

  109. Jadesoye Says:

    Thank you!!! Best wishes!!!!

  110. LinuxHead Says:

    Awesome!!!

    What about Compiz? is it working now?

  111. tdockery97 Says:

    @#101 Cliff: That’s a bug Justin found in the installer. If you choose btrsf for the file system the installer also formats boot as btrfs. Of course boot has to be ext4.

  112. lee8oi Says:

    Nice Clem. Just blew my mind. I’m so downloading the 64 bit version right now. Happy Holidays indeed.

  113. lee8oi Says:

    P.S. the torrent downloaded crazy fast. That was awsome. I’ll fire the torrent back up to help seed & keep it awsome :)

  114. darco Says:

    @60
    Are you right clicking the partition where you want the /root to be installed on? My first go around I saw it was a little different from previous installers. Now I like it!

  115. atmanleft Says:

    From a satisfied LMDE user, greetings for this new release.
    Thanks to Clem and all the Mint crew. You’re really great.
    Grazie e Buon Natale.

    P.S. LMDE rocks!!!!

  116. quintale Says:

    thanks a lot for this wonderful gift. I’ve just sent you another donation, you really deserve it :)

    After burning 32-bit LMDE 201012 on DVD (no unetbootin, etc.) I try to boot X, but it works only in text mode.

  118. kami84gr Says:

    More and more Ubuntu seems to be shooting its self on the foot. I think in the long run it is for Mint’s best interest to disingage it self from it. Debian provides a great base to build upon , with less radical changes and more consistent enviroment. Again congratulations Mint team!

  119. Arend Says:

    Santa just swung by. Thanks.

  120. orschiro Says:

    And it finally become true. Thank you all for your great work.

    This is the most convenient rolling release distribution available.

    wifi card is not recognized and it cannot work properly.

    PS:

    Hi, thanks Clem for this great 64 bit version.
    I seem to have stumbled on a bug. Please try this at home lol
    Click Menu, in the search box type “ms fonts”
    On my m/c, I get as far as “ms fo” and the system freezes. I have to restart to recover. Is this just me or is there something I’m missing?
    Merry Christmas everyone

    Does anyone Know if new LMDE is compatible with INTEL GMA500 Graphics Card?
    Or is there any suggestion on how i can install pulsbo drivers on LMDE?

    Thanks !

  130. arie Says:

    I’m not an entire newbie but not savvy either. Installing LMDE was no problem but couldn’t get the NVIDIA drivers working. With the default nouveau drivers I could login but didn’t get past the Mint 10 logo. I tried installing the NVIDIA drivers both the official Debian way and installing the latest .run file from NVIDIA to no avail. “Simple” is not part of the Debian vocabulary, neither is “user friendly” so for me it’s back to the Ubuntu based Mint. When LMDE can handle hardware drivers the same way as the Ubuntu distro, I’ll give it another try.

  131. Hawks-SOAD Says:

    Thanks Clem and team have a merry Christmas and a happy new year as for compiz i installed it from the repos and is working absolutely fine for me :) the only issue i have is the sound bug that has plauged me since ubuntu included pulseaudio but yet it seems every distro i try with pulseaudio doesnt work very well for me oh well great release and the only thing i really had to do is install oss4 cheers

    A happy LMDE 201012 64bit user here, no display for my 9400GT Nvidia graphic card. Similar to Julia, adding nomodeset at kernel parameter and installing the legacy 173, now I am getting things working. Posted this via LMDE.

    Thanks to everyone.

  133. GentooJoe Says:

    People, whats wrong with you?
    The “nomodeset” is very known noveau – free nvidia driver bug.
    It is problem of nvidia and noveau.
    Nvidia does not want opensource driver.
    Noveau wants opensource driver.
    Mint packages noveau.
    As result a lot of graphics cards do not work.

    nomodeset disables support for noveau.
    The “problem” is here since linux mint 9.
    If you use nvidia, do not use anything but proprietary driver, or VESA.
    If you want opensource driver, go Intel. Or amd, if they hire more than 4 developers.

  150. MadOCer Says:

    Hi, first off, a big THX to all LMDE developers. Great to see the project grow and advance, step-by-step. Just got a new laptop (HP 625) and wanted to try LMDE on it. Unfortunately I couldn’t get it installed on that machine. It always got stuck in the install process at some place. Tried both the old and new ISO. There seems to be a hardware incompatibilty with some part of that particular notebook. Anyway, tried the “normal” Linux Mint 10 then and it then worked like a charm. BUT, I’ll sure give LMDE a try on one of my desktops soon. Hopefully it’ll install there. Unfortunately I had no time for real debugging when trying it on the laptop. I just needed the thing up and running as fast as possible. THX again, anyway!

  151. Pito Says:

    Thank you very much, LMDE 64 bit rocks, had some problems, but found answers on forum, now everything works, i will install it on my netbook too

    Hmm…
    Does the *Mi-D Clem & Team* fight crime and scarf down pizza
    when not programming Mint?

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas
    and all through the house,
    not a creature was stirring,
    each was using Mint with their mouse!

    It came upon the midnight clear,
    an OS was created over pizza and beer.

    No surprise that Linux Mint is a hit,
    they have a Debian version in 64-bit!

  169. msx Says:

    Dear Clem, devs, everyone else:

    BtrFS breaks the install.
    I first tried to install LMDE with this layout on a VB 4.0 vm:

    /boot ext3
    / btrfs
    /home btrfs
    swap

    but boot fail and I was left with the minimal rescue shell.
    Then I tried and succefully installed it using ext3 and ext4 filesystems; so on multimedia and everything else’s working great, even VBGuestAdditions installed without worries – thanks for including build tools and kernel headers.

    Seems you’re rocketeering guys, congratz!

  170. msx Says:

    First round of bugs, how to reproduce it:

    1. Update the system via Update Manager (GUI)
    2. sudo aptitude install guake

    You will get this:

    WARNING: Failed to parse default value `’ for schema (/schemas/desktop/gnome/f-spot/ui/main_window_x)
    WARNING: Failed to parse default value `’ for schema (/schemas/desktop/gnome/f-spot/ui/main_window_y)
    WARNING: Failed to parse default value `’ for schema (/schemas/desktop/gnome/f-spot/ui/viewer_x)
    WARNING: Failed to parse default value `’ for schema (/schemas/desktop/gnome/f-spot/ui/viewer_y)

    Guake will fail to install complaining /schemas entries are wrong

    3. sudo aptitude purge f-spot
    4. sudo aptitude install guake (this time it will install ok)
    5. sudo aptitude install f-spot

    and you’ll have again:

    WARNING: Failed to parse default value `’ for schema (/schemas/desktop/gnome/f-spot/ui/main_window_x)
    WARNING: Failed to parse default value `’ for schema (/schemas/desktop/gnome/f-spot/ui/main_window_y)

    WARNING: Failed to parse default value `’ for schema (/schemas/desktop/gnome/f-spot/ui/viewer_y)

    So there’s a problem with F-Spot.
    I would like to mentio F-Spot still launches and runs okay :P

    Well, time to dinner people, see you!

  171. Zoltan Says:

    Was waiting eagerly for this. But the install fails:-(
    To be more precise it stops at libicudata.so.42.1.
    However, no problem with install media. It stopped when installer noticed there is no space left on the install media. BTW I miss an option for xfs as a filesystem to install on.

    FAIL from the very beginning not supporting ReiserFS by default. adding it seems to add the choice to the installer but just sits there and “formats” forever… and my Reiser /home partition that LMDE can so beautifully read from the live DVD refuses to mount come hell or high water once LDME is installed.

    My only option appears to be to back up the /home partition from the live CD onto other media, install / and /home as ext4 then restore /home after the fact.. pain in the ass devs, real pain in the ass.

    Whatever happened to posting md5sums? You send us to nothing but mirror sites without any md5sum support. I’m in the US and I have downloaded from the same site all day and have yet to get the same md5sum. I really wish you would post the md5sum – or if its there make it more obvious.

    I booted again with the livecd to see what the log files says, but there was not xorg.log or messages files.

    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks

  179. Vincent Says:

    John Abbott > it’s clearly mentionned on the download page, as usual (http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=75). For LMDE 64-bit, the md5sum is 1284feca2dff0ec76c6be6825a71f9b7.

    You could just download it via torrent instead; then you wouldn’t have to worry about checking the md5sum of your download.

  180. Mick Says:

    Guy.
    I had the same problem, burned two Discs (64 Bit) and they would not get past the Mint 10 screen (is it called the splash screen?).
    However if you hit enter before the time clock runs out, it will load.
    It seems that it will not automatically run into boot mode, well that is what happened with my system.
    Hope this helps and l plan to load it tomorrow when l have more time to play.

  181. kaddy Says:

    I also have the problem with the screen going black after the linux mint logo when im trying to boot into the live cd. Might I mention that Linuxmint 10 “ubuntu based” works fine, and so does ubuntu, it is only this Debian edition which is having this weird bug….. It is definately not my hardware…. any more info on this??? I want to use the debian edition damn it, not ubuntu :(

  182. Mick Says:

    To both Guy & Kaddy.
    Try hitting the enter key when the logo appears and not waiting for it to load once the seconds have passed, at the top of the screen.
    Seems to be a bug in the loading, found this out after burning my second DVD (64 bit) and not waiting for it to load automatically. Then tried the same with the first DVD and it also loaded after hitting enter with the Mint 10 logo showing.

    I think it might be computer related, as the same usb stick was able to boot my aspire one zg5 but not the HP ZD8000 (32 bit ). Strangely the 64 bit did boot and install on the ZD8000, still trying to get 32 bit version to install

  189. kaddy Says:

    @Mick
    it’s not that. It is a Kms bug. It has been reported and marked critical. there will need to be a new respin of this iso. The way to workaround it is to hit “tab” on compatibility mode, and after the “force Vesa etc” line…. “forgot the exact wording… but it had that in it”
    You have to add “nomodeset” and it will boot you into the Desktop

    I got mine running…. although I am very unimpressed by the Installer in Debian edition. It is rubbish. I don’t know if it is possible to use ubuntu’s new installer for the debian edition…. but it is not exactly newbie friendly…. no options to automate the process such as “use existing free space” or “use entire disk” Like the ubuntu version………

    I couldn’t be bothered learning that installer in the end and ditched it. I hope the ubiquity installer comes to the debian edition………..

  190. zon Says:

    This release is very bad for mint reputation
    All kinds of problems, from not booting at all to install problems
    The team should pull it out from servers or mark those as betas

  194. gorillaki Says:

    The best way to install this is surely enough doing a minimal installation using the Debian netinstall/businesscard beta CD for Squeeze. This will allow you a lot more options than the (quite basic) liveCD installer, e.g. installing all partitions (excluding /boot) in LUKS LVM, or LUKS separate partitions. After that you can add the LMDE sources to /etc/apt/sources.list and you’re ready to have the new thing set the way YOU like.
    The Ubiquity Installer is good enough for kindergarten courses, and nothing more than that.

  195. Chris Says:

    @sergio,

    I could not agree more. 201012 is not ready for prime time and it should be pulled from the servers.

  196. bjasto Says:

    Have been able to install all variants of both mint and ubuntu on my Dell Inspiron but this just goes black shortly into the booting process and only escape seems to be to hold down the power button for 4 seconds. :-(
    Did manage to install the 64 bit via VirtualBox on my main computer, but the installer is the most un-intuitive piece of software I’ve seen for quite a while.

    I will sit this one over, but hey, it just makes me so much more happy for the standard linux mint 10. :-)

    can get this to work even on compatibility mode. all i get is a black screen of death (yay bsod on linux). what´s the purpose on a xmas release anyway? what a nonsense. lmde 201009 worked flawlessly, why not this one? what a big dissapoint, moving to another distro right now.

  199. Chris Says:

    I got the same thing Mike did. Boot up stopped at a blank screen. I used K3B to burn it to a CD and verify the burning was a success, it passed and I did the media check before I tried to boot. Then, just to be sure, I put it onto a USB drive and got the same result. I had no problems with the previous LMDE release, it boots just fine.

  200. gorillaki Says:

    For god’s sake, RTFM, as well as the previous comments, guys. Google for “KMS” and “nomodeset” and you may be able to boot the disk, after all… :p

    Thanx for this great effort.
    I am still wondering about inherent security of Mint here. If i understand debians policy correctly testing doesnt receive any security patches while sid and stable get patched. This means that a vulnerability is known but is not fixed anymore until the package arrives in stable.
    Did i understand it correctly? If yes, how do you address this problem?

  207. kaddy Says:

    I agree this release is damaging to Mint’s reputation. Such a major bug like this should of been detected before release and held back until it was sorted

    You’re a real piece of work mate. If this was pure Debian, then why is Linux Mint taking a crack at it? FGS, maybe you should try and read up a bit on what Linux Mint is about. Never thought about that before you opened your big gob eh?

  210. Zwopper Says:

    @Vincent: A lot of us would like to take this to the forums, but getting there is difficult these days. ;)

  212. Chris Says:

    @gorillaki: Hey, genius, there’s no need to be a jerk about it. I just assumed THE DEVELOPERS (not you) would like to know about a problem with their release, especially since it’s an issue with the current release of LMDE that wasn’t a problem with the original LMDE release.

    I’ve tried the release on two computers that have nothing in common but Nvidia graphics adapters, so I’d say the issue is probably related to that (no surprise there.)

  217. Kirk M Says:

    Dee – The forums as well as the Community site have been down more than up for the past month or so now. The Mint folks know this and are going to be switching hosting around early in 2011 in order to improve up time. At least if I recall what I read earlier this Fall correctly. I know, it’s a bit of a pain when a there’s a new version of LMDE that, for one reason or another, is released with (apparently) a rather serious bug. By what I hear, most of these problems are relegated to the 32 bit .iso while the 64 bit .iso is fairly bug free.

    FWIW, the bug has been reported and confirmed and you can follow the progress here:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/694177

    Too bad it hit during the holidays. Be patient though, the Mint devs are not ones to let a bug like this sit there without a fix for too long.

    Mint 9 didn’t work with my wireless, but that was because the kernel was a version behind. Mint 10 detected everything and once it had my password all was tickety boo. Go Mint!

    Unfortunately this version of LMDE still won’t see my wireless card. I find it strange that Mint 10 does so flawlessly and this version of LMDE does not. Even when I set it up manually it doesn’t want to acknowledge it. To the best of my knowledge the kernel is recent enough – but maybe I’m wrong…

    Anyway, I will check into it some more. Once my wireless is working I’d like to install LMDE and use it full time. Other that that I am very interested in this project and want to thank the Mint team again for the great “gift”!

    All the best!

  223. lakerz Says:

    Hmm, looks like the 64-bit version is a quite strange release… no ntp after installation, a lot of packages to get upgraded afterwards which arent installed and took me two times to install it (first time it was mounting / read only for some reason)..

    guess there is some more worke to do.. but thanks anyway for releasing so fast!

  224. lakerz Says:

    It might be a stupid question – but why are the packages in LMDE so old? Wine 1.0.1 – ok, Wine is at least working in this version.

    But another, and more anoying example: valknut 0.3.13 – it’s of no use in this version.

    I thought this “rolling” distribution should be more up-to-date than ubuntu, or did I missunderstand something?

    LMDE 9 live disc works fine I redownloaded it here http://mint.ez.by/linuxmint.com/debian/linuxmint-debian-201009-gnome-dvd-i386.iso

    Not sure if I should install it and update to get the LMDE 10 packages though, don’t know if it would break it since people seem to be having a lot of problems with it.

  226. cpncpm Says:

    TP-LINK WN821N (V2) does not get recognized in LM-Debian 201012. It’s based on Atheros and works in Ubuntu/Mint 10 without Problems.

  227. Juan Carlos Says:

    Well, in comment #205 I said that my LMDE Live DVD wasn’t recognizing my wireless card.

    I decided to install LMDE and try to solve it… easy for me because the cellphone connection was working… I did it and followed this tutorial http://wiki.debian.org/wl and it worked.

    Thank you Clem for a great distribution…

  228. Rich Hunn Says:

    Wish I knew what I was doing, must not be techie enough. I run nVidia
    and had zero problems on the install, I’m running the 64 bit deb version of Codeweavers so I can run some Win98 games, no issues. I’m
    running the latest deb version of Libreoffice which isn’t even an
    official release and even the spell check finally works in that. I’m
    running a Black 9950 which seems happy as a freaking clam. so what’s up
    with all the problems?? Oh I know, I’m not trying to install on a laptop!! Guess that’s my next challenge, nice work though Clem, sorry
    I’m not having more problems.

    Hola.
    He quemado 4 dvd de linux mint debian 201012, 2 dvd bajados de enlaces importantes de 32 bit y de 64 bit y otros 2 dvd de torrents de 32 bit y de 64 bit y al tratar de instalarlos en los 2 ordenadores de sobremesa que tengo dan errores y no se instalan. Probé en un principio con el primero que bajé de 32 bit y daba error, así que me fuí bajando uno a uno probándolo y todos igual.
    En uno de los ordenadores tengo windows y fedora y en el otro ordenador tengo linux mint 10, ubuntu 10.10 y guadalinex, van todos perfectamente pero linux mint debian no lo puedo instalar de ninguna forma.
    Están malos los enlaces o no están correctos los sistemas operativos de linux mint debian 201012 .

    Happy New Year to everybody for 2011

  247. shakta Says:

    Lakerz, don’t think like an Ubuntu user, you aren’t using Ubunutu anymore, so, do not expect LMDE behaves like Linux Mint or Ubuntu does. Even though Ubuntu is Debian based they are not totally compatible and have different core philosophies. By the way, Debian tends to have older versions of the programs, because one of the key points in Debian is stability even squeeze (testing branch of Debian and the base of LMDE) is quite old compared to Ubuntu, but comparing with Debian stable branch is very up to date. You will be prepared to deal with Debian’s style of making things and to google a lot to resolve problems, but at the end you will have a fast and reliably OS.

    Hi, i have a problem. first i’v downloaded the 32 bit iso, from Brazil mirrow, and burn it with brasero, from my LM 7. Trying to install, or just chek the live DVD, just dont worked, so i retry, and downloaded the iso, from the canadian mirrow… burn it whith brasero… dont work just a black screen at the end of the proces…. so i burn it again with K3b, at 4X speed, the lowest…. dont work, just a black screen at the end of process… i check the integrity of the DVD, and the messaje was like this: everything is OK… i tryed in a laptop too, the same resulst…..

    So 2 iso images….

    3 burns….

    and so dont work…

    i did some wrong?

    Hello everybody!

    I just installed the 64-bit version, and all went fine.

    I’m having an issue with the linux mint taskbar. After setting it to autohide, it doesn’t show any more. I had to use the command: gconftool –recursive-unset /apps/panel, to get the taskbar reset.

    Any idea why this happens?

    Thanks in advance to anyone :)

  251. brennus Says:

    Very disappointing. Never had any issues with any Mint version (well, only minor ones). This time live cd ended with blank screen. Okay, then I added nomodeset to boot parameters and it finally booted. After a couple of minutes mouse cursor started lagging. Don’t know why – checked top, but cpu was idle. Then, tried to delete some files form my btrfs home partition – it took ages even to mount it.
    Installed hoping everything will be fine. WRONG! Now Mint does not want to mount my btrfs home partition at all, and, as a result, I cannot do much with my pc, as most apps need to create files on /home to start. Incredible… Going back to squeeze.

  252. Rui Castro Says:

    I tried to install it using the JFS format but it always hangs when the installation tries to format the partition. Had to go back to EXT4, and all went well.

    Is there any known issues with JFS?

  253. lakerz Says:

    @shakta: Thank you for answering to my question. Yeah, it looks like it is really a quite different feeling with debian. But isn’t the possibility to be easily up-to-date one of the core advantages of a rolling release? Of course, there are other advantages (e.g. no need to reinstall to have the latest release), but I always heard this topic in combination with the wish to be more up to date, especially more up to date than the six month release.

    Of course, if this is a reasonable wish might be a different question.. ;)

    LMDE is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I’ve been a big fan of Debian for years. I have also ran Mint since version 7 on my laptop since it has always been very easy to install, and has required little to no configuration to have up and running. I now have LMDE on my laptop, and am seriously contemplating switching out Debian for LMDE on my desktop. Keep up the good work guys.

  258. joe Says:

    when they add hardware drivers and make it simple to add to a partition with windows then i will use this i love the idea but it has to be perfect and i love messing with systems for the best performance in many ways so yea until then we will see what they do

    is Clem missing in action or something? lol.
    This debian edition should be pulled off the server because of the Major KMS bug that is present that is affecting the

    Switched from eeebuntu 3.0 on my eeePC1005HA, everything’s fine, network working out-of-the-box! I had to do some little tweaks as some of the hotkeys didn’t work. Well finally I must say: this is the distro I was searching for my netbook, you people at linuxmint have done an awesome job with LMDE, and also thank you so much to make it a rolling distribution because I didn’t feel like I would put some gentoo-like distro on it.

  262. NickDjinn Says:

    Debian is actually BEHIND Ubuntu, so nomatter how soon you get the updates, a lot of stuff like the kernel or version of Gnome will always be trailing behind the main edition.

    However, I have high hopes for how this project will evolve. Ubuntu developed as much for the server market as for the end user market, but I bet Mint could make a better Debian based OS within a few years, geared towards the end user, and not bloated with stuff end users dont need.

    Ubuntu has made some crappy decisions, and it would be nice to have some viable alternatives.

    If you want bleeding edge, you want the Fedora edition…..at least that is my understanding. It moves faster than debian. Its also less stable though, which is the trade off for bleeding edge.

    Rolling release is nice though.

  263. NickDjinn Says:

    I hope clem isnt over extending himself….everything he is making is excellent. I also look forward to a LM-Fedora edition, but I dont want the poor guy to burn himself out on research chemicals with all these projects he is single handedly working on.

    Mint in my opinion is the greatest collection of operating systems in the world…..comparable with OSX at PC prices, better in most ways but not others, and blows windows out of the water for everything but gaming variety….I think linux Mint is going to be gaining a lot of popularity, and also start to be taken more seriously by the Linux community.

  264. Rick in Maidenhead UK Says:

    UK Netrino site has stopped x64 debian download twice at 17% complete. Then
    Used Canada – installs ok

    Kaffeine loads and runs well on the other distros I’ve used.
    It ALSO installs on Debian x64 but is not listed when required to run.

    With other Mint and Ubuntu distros there is less hassle to set up DVB scan if you install Me-TV first. THEN Kaffeine TV will recognise and Wscan the chosen TV transmitter. ME-TV is then redundant and can be un-installed.

    I have now been running LMDE 32-bit for a couple of days now. My machine is an Acer Aspire One D250. It works very well and the few issues I had with the pre-release are gone. LMDE is very fast and reliable. I use wireless, Bluetoth, Compiz and network-printing. It’s all fine.

    Compiz works out-of-the-box, just press Alt+F2 and write “compiz –replace”. To make it start permanently: create a starter with the same command in the “Program-starter” (gnome-session-properties)

    I was waiting, waiting and so, this:

    Reading the posts, Congrats for the LMDE 64bit edition
    I don’t have a 64 bit machine

    For the LMDE 32 bit Edition, no Congrats at all

    LMDE 32 bit Live Dvd
    md5 sum checked
    DVD integrity checked

    I have Nvidia G force graphics card in my PC Bio Star
    9.400 GT . All i got was a blank screen. Tried some
    boot options and compatb. mode. Nothing happened.
    Blank screen all the time. I can’t boot the Live Dvd
    32 bit. LAPTOP iNTEL the installation went good till’
    the last moment when configuring bootloader forever,
    and the installer crashes. Force quit, what i got

    This LMDE 32bit final stable release is the bugest
    buggy Mint release i ever saw.

    Why not take off , remove the iso from servers, fix the
    major bugs and a respin of the .iso to be upload again
    to the servers for public dowload. Accidents will happen
    and we can wait, but please fix the the 32bit .iso
    Give it a chance to be repaired and be available again

    The installer does not work good and it seems the .iso
    was not tested in machines with NVIdia Graphics card

    If this had happened to the Main Edition Gnome Ubuntu base
    i assume this problem already had been solved

    Debian Stable is about stability!
    If you want some adrenaline, change synaptic to SID (unstable) and do a total upgrade (that’s what I did), you will have something like APTOSID with Gnome;
    If you really want bleeding edge, add EXPERIMENTAL to synaptic, but get ready to bork your system at least once a day, LOL!
    If you really know what you want, you can just enable EXPERIMENTAL, get what you need and disable it after the applications are installed!

    BTW, running LMDE 64bit here – upgraded to SID, it’s great.

  285. hamburn Says:

    As I have written some space above, I was really happy to get LMDE x64.
    Now I have installed it and encountered problems, which made it impossible for me to use it.

    At first I found no point in the menue to download a driver for my graphic card as it is in all other mint distros. After downloading the driver by using synaptic I found nothing to configure it. After I downloaded the tool therefor (in the other Mint’s it comes with the driver), I encountered the problem that I could not use it as user, i have to use root. Ok, change to root.

    Trying that, I found I CAN’T LOG IN AS ROOT ON MY VERY OWN computer.

    Sorry but this policy is disgusting.

    I came fom winXP to Mint because I didn’t liked M$’s policies.

    Now I have to think about, if I buy Win7, which is a pretty neat Os, with an root account. Have done a lot on that one laptop of my sister, witout destroying it.

    Sorry guys, even if I would break something on my system using the root account, it’s my system. I don’t need a guardian. Period.

  288. StratosJL Says:

    @hamburn
    If I may say, I would recommend that you try Mint 10, the mainstream edition, which is much more user-friendly. LMDE has several rough edges and at this point of time, that’s a feature, not a bug.

  289. StratosJL Says:

    Great work. First impressions here:

    http://url.laspas.gr/2m

  290. Craig Says:

    yes…hamburn…try Mint 10 Gnome Main Edition (based on ubuntu) it’s very smooth, polished, easy to install and shouldn’t have the kind of bugs you are encountering in LMDE…
    LMDE at this point in time is really still an “experimenters distro”..maybe in a few years it will be up to the quality and reliability of Linux Mint Main Edition, but not now…so rather then get a “sour taste” of Linux Mint” go main edition…you will love it…See what the real Linux Mint is…i don’t think you will be disappointed with it…

    Ummm, I just installed LM10 and after a week of testing it I’m going back to LM9, I found LM10 lots of regressions. I was encouraged about the new release of LMDE but after reading the comments I’m thinking to wait and see. Hope the new KDE 10 works as good as KDE 9 when is release, if not I will keep KDE 9 that for me is the best ever. Happy New Year to all of you.

  293. Thom W Says:

    Just have to say: I don’t know what all the trouble is about. All of my various systems have booted without fault from the 32-bit live DVD. And I’m typing this from an HDD installed version of LMDE 32-bit.
    Maybe I just got lucky, but I am yet to have any problems with the new release.

  294. Eric Says:

    Can’t support lvm installation.
    So I boot to live environment, and apt-get install lvm2.
    two way can setup the lmde.
    First use traditional debootstrap way, install debian gnome desktop environment and install the mint-meta-debian meta package.
    Second, mount the filesystem.squashfs and cp -pr to target partiton, chroot to target, install lvm2, upgrade the linux-image.
    An error occurred after reboot, normal boot sequence can’t mount the additional lvm parttion although it can load the root lvm partiton correctly. I found it need alter the default /etc/rcS.d/S26lvm2 to /etc/rcS.d/06lvm2, the boot mount program can mount the lvm2 partiton correctly.

    Grub will not recognise the “better” file system on my system (amd64). Debian will not update the repositories giving an error message each time. Debian will install only if you use the Ext4 file system. The file manager has such small fonts that I can’t read the text… it wont increase in size no matter what I change. Debian Mint hold promise but it was released before all the bugs were worked out. I hope Clem finds time to correct all these problems shortly; it could be the best of the best and be the number one Distro of Linux in the world….. but not as it is.

    What does this mean please?
    The update won’t execute new downloads and installs because of this pop-up. When I apply the command as shown in the terminal, I’m told it is a bad command . . .

    The pop-up window contains:
    E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run ‘sudo dpkg –configure -a’ to correct the problem.
    E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

    An Email to the address given here would be apprreciated so that I can continue to find more out about this very interseting edition of Mint 10

    Thanks for the solution if given.

    it is amazing…thank you so much

  303. Rick Collier Says:

    Please delete last question unless you deem it useful to others . .
    The solution is to enter dpkg ” –Congigure -a ” in RECOVERY mode after supplying password for Route rights.

    Faced issues with 32-bit iso, network manager was not working and couldn’t get it up manually too. Live CD got hung on startup, had to restart before it worked again though without network manager, sound was also suspect, didn’t work consistently. However 64-bit didn’t seem to have those issues.

  306. Ben2go Says:

    BIG THANKS !!! I Love It ;)

  307. BK Singh Says:

    Installed LMDE 64 bit edition on my AMD Phenom based PC in dual boot with Windows 7 x64. So far I.m highly satisfied with it’s performance and features. I hope one day it has the potential to become the best linux debian distribution. Wishing a very happy and successful year 2011 for team LMDE. Fantastic and Welldone!

  308. Andrew Says:

    If your boot stops and you see black screen do this:
    Reboot
    Hit Enter while counting down
    Choose Compatibility mode from menu and hit Tab
    Remove “–” and type “nomodeset single” (without quotes) and hit Enter
    Boot will start. Type Ctrl+D when promped.
    Enjoy your LiveLMDE.

  311. George Borusiewich Says:

    It is with much interest that I read the 349 messages in this blog. A few of the messages are highly uncomplimentary, and a few are filled with anger. Several years ago, I, too, sent angry messages to the Linux Mint developers. That was because I didn’t understand the relationship
    between the developers and us users. I believed that the relationship was a partnership. It is not. I now understand that the relationship is one where we users are worshipers in a temple, and the developers are the high priests. (Before you cut me off, let me explain that I mean no disrespect. I admire and envy those who have the talent and energy to write all that code.) If the angry people don’t like worshiping in the Linux Mint temple, let them find another temple that they like better. You didn’t pay for Linux Mint, so don’t expect a money-back guarantee. I tried to find a temple with fewer flaws, but kept coming back to Linux Mint as the temple with (for me) the least number of flaws.

    Wonderful, Absolutely Wonderful….

    I just successfully installed the 201101 32bit respin on a 5+ yrs. old Dell Inspiron laptop.

    The 32 bit 201101 installed 100% perfectly!!

    NO hanging and NO Blackscreen-Of-Death issues. Thanks Clem and Mint Team.

    Very very nice! I’m very pleased with the efforts on this.

  313. Yanski Says:

    I would like to have seen LMDE come with a different default theme.
    Yes.. I know we can easily change themes but that is not the point, it should look different out of the box like your KDE version does, have its own identity.
    As it is now it just looks like Linux Mint with the same old green colour. Just my opinion folks.
    Very good distro though, not knocking that at all.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL

  314. pushpa Says:

    thank you guys…its been 5 years i hv used a linx platform…n i am very happy to use linx mint…its a great work..U guys r th best…MICROSOFT windows shd sell their company to LINUX.

  315. fanisatt Says:

    Congratulations for this Debian Edition.
    I installed the LMDE 64bit because I like the rolling attitude it has.
    I think that this is the correct way for any Linux distro.
    I am so tired because of the six or seven different and clean Linux installations I have done since 2007….You see, I expected something better every 6 months!
    To the moment, LMDE seems stable and strong to my hardware.
    I used to be a KDE lover and I am looking forward for a Linux Mint KDE Rolling Edition. So, “LMKDERE” will probably be my final Linux installation until the end of the world…..

    “Will it come with KDE or other desktops?
    The decision wasn’t made yet. When it’s fully on par with the Main Edition and if there is a demand for it, further editions will come for LMDE.”

    Demand for KDE? ? ? YES!! ! !

    Can’t use till you have KDE.

    Also please REMOVE nouveau, we don’t want it, just mucks things up.

  319. T_________U Says:

    I would love to see a KDE version as well :)

    (well, of course, one extremely polished GNOME version would be better than 2 less polished ones, I guess. I would just choose another distro, ain’t a problem :)

  320. Angelo Says:

    Coooool!!!
    I was waiting it from long time, Debian & Mint it’s incredible, I’m sure that Mint will give to Debian the light enviroment that Debian deserve.

  321. Wandernder Says:

    Folks, I’m absolutely satisfied!! I use Debian (aptosid) for years, and I don’t like Ubuntu at all. I was excited when I saw Linux Mint Debian Edition and just waited for the 64bit-Release. Now I have a Debian Distribution with a really beautiful layout – thank you very much for the great work!!

  322. ftz01 Says:

    64-bit LMDE can not be installed. UBS or CDROM.
