I have recently installed LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) onto my laptop but I can't isntall anything because it can't find the sources. I'm assuming I need to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file but I'm not sure. And if so I don't know in what way I should edit the file.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed, then installed most recent version of Debian on an unallocated 100GB partition on the primary drive (on a PC, not on a notebook). That all works without a problem. The problem is that I can not figure out how to change the boot menu …

Hello ALL! I believe this has been posted/discussed in one way or another, but, again: I use Linux now quite long back. Started in late 90s with some ancient SuSE, breaking for couple of years, and then, again, probably with Ubuntu 5.10. Ubuntu 6.06 LTS was so good to me. …

Do you consider yourself to be fairly familiar with the Debian Linux distribution? I thought I was familiar with it enough to know its origin and history, how its name was derived and that Richard Stallman, the Father of the Free Software movement, uses a Debian derivative ( gNewSense ) …

From its Debian roots to its commercially available support to its overwhelming popularity, Ubuntu is the ultimate Linux distribution. For me, Ubuntu became a significant force within the Linux community with its 2006 releases: 6.04 and 6.10. From April 2006, I've installed and used every new version and anticipate each …

At my last, best count, there were over 550 individual Linux distributions. From the most generic, flat installs of the most common distros to ultra-specialized, multimedia-oriented to the eye-popping, fancy ones--they're all there for the taking. I found ten distributions from among the 500 or so that I know about …
