Mint 14


I have tried to load Mint 14 from the Linux Format magazine. It does not work for Cinnamon 32 & 64 bit. They both hang after 10 minutes if you try to do a live install.

The only distro on the disc that works is the Mate 32 bit which I am now using to send this report.

I have found that you cannot be a superuser as it will not work as root. I will perserver with Mint 13 KDE, which has bugs as a root user until someone explains how to get on as root.

I have no need to use 14 unless I find one.

Anyway, I appreciate the pointer in case I find a need to use 14.
