LXF DVD {SOLVED}

Postby DavidMcCrossan » Wed Aug 15, 2012 1:58 pm

Just received #161 and looked in vain for Mint 13 in standard 32-bit.

Instead there is a rush of ¨Rosa¨, which is of no use.

After the mess you made of the last disk, when you presumed that a majority of your readers wanted 64-bit (ask them, and I think you are wrong).

When do we get 32bit Mint 13?

Don't forget David is in Spain, I believe. He'll just have to wait a little longer.

Indeed. He asked when and my answer shows he'll get it with his next issue, whenever that arrives.

Which seems to be in another 3 weeks, if David has just posted after getting the last edition. Seems slow to me but as you said it's in the next issue.

Don't know whether this is a useful suggestion or not, but Mint is available as a torrent here http://torrents.linuxmint.com/index.php?page_number=2 it might take a while but even several days is better than waiting 3 weeks for the mag; probably not very useful if you're on a dialup connection though :(
I have been touched by his noodly appendage.
