Linux Mint 12 and nomodeset


Hi
I've been and reading on various websites:
https://www.ultimateeditionoz.com/
http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=105627 and
other Google sites as well trying to learn as much as I can about Mint 12

I came across a statement that a Linux user made and I am wondering should I resuscitate exactly as he/she has done?

They said:' I needed nomodeset and acpi =off as parameters "

His/her banshee froze and he could only boot by adding nomodeset to the Grub parameters.

I'm trying to understand something before the Install process-

It was mentioned in a post that "quiet splash" is not supported in some desktops and laptops....Should I change this quiet splash to nomodeset or simply stop worrying about all I read?

Having read some of your last posts, definitely stop worrying. Install Mint "as is" then come back with real problems if any. If Ubuntu works for you Mint will as well.
And don't care for software, you certainly will find all what you need in Mint + Ubuntu repositories, including GIMP of course.

Two more bits of advise: only install packages officially supported for your version of Mint and read documentation provided by Mint.
