I doubt that .. what I'm saying is - Is it worth attempting to troubleshoot Peppermint 4, when she already has Peppermint 3 installed, and Peppermint 5 isn't that far off ?

Even if we get it working with Peppermint 4 .. Peppermint 5 might throw in its own curve ball ;)

I suppose you could try a Lubuntu 14.04 (daily build) LiveCD/LiveUSB .. if that boots, Peppermint 5 should too when it's released.

That is worth a shot huh, I will do that as soon as i look up where to get such a release from....
seeing as I have two machines here yet that won't run peppermint 4 without issues I got me some good test subjects for that task... LOL :)

I went out for a smoke while Lubuntu was installing and it blanked the screen on me, I went to move my mouse and i am stuck at a locked screen and have no clue how to get back in... I tried a multitude of username and password combos none work... I google Lubuntu username and password and nobody has one... I have no idea how far along the install is now, all I can do is watch my hard drive light, and listen for the cdrom sounds, and hope I can guess when it is done, and power button it off.... So glad the Peppermint team has a clue about these things..... :)

OK here is the scoop hot off the presses...
Lubuntu 14.04 daily build does boot up and does install on the infamous IBM T22....
However they still do not have the boot screens fixed which is shocking cause LXLE and PCLinuxOS screens work on the IBM T22... and lxle is a 12.04 build shocking..... Booted to the desktop using only 88 megs ram, I no longer see Zeitgeist which i always remove, will have to check if they still have xapian indexer running also cause that is a must remove also....

Ok the xapian index and zeitgeist are no longer in lubuntu....

it reboots and shuts down now also....

only thing i see that was not fixed is the boot up splash screens.... no biggie.... :)
Maybe the Peppermint boys can fix those splash screens huh??????

Hopefully we'll be able to install Peppermint 5 on our oold tired PC's, hehe.

I am definitely getting more RAM :-)! Some webpages I load completely slooow the machine down. I had forgotten what it was like to only have 512mb :? .


Thanks again for all your help!!!!

Well if it is any consolation to you The Infamous IBM T22 laptop, was the machine that caused me to download over 50 distros, and I found only 3 that would install on it.... It was a real P I T A machine... I was able to boot the new lubuntu 14.04 daily from a live cdrom, and also able to install it, and I played with it for about 30 or 40 minutes, and all is fine with it....
I trust since the Lubuntu works fine, that the peppermint 5 they are going to make from that build of lubuntu will also work fine....

Yes 512 in my opinion is the bare minimum you should have for a working and usable linux box...
Only because most linux distros if you just install them without tweaking them use about 120 megs ram to get to the desktop, then when you open firefox that uses anywhere from 200 to 250 megs of ram so 370 megs is gone now of your 512 there is not much left at this point for anything else to run....
