Any idea what this might be?

No idea on the internals of OSX...I just might have been dealing with about three schools 2 CCs and one University with some poor setups but honestly...I couldn't install a program normally in OSX (it's normal way) due to the prompt but man...I could run skype and any browser or program I wanted so long as it was that dmg or whatever image format OSX allowed.

@jrl1357: I've actually gotten into conversations with people because I'd run Kubuntu and they'd either ask why I do it or how I made Windows look like a OSX (the effects in KDE). Other times it's been discussions on whether I'm "allowed to do that." which always made me laugh as I'd point out...I'm not actually doing anything to the school's property.

For a while they wouldn't let me do it (they couldn' track my activity) but after emailing a bunch of teachers and they said I could- as long as I provioded the logs for firefox, aptitude and apt, and used only appoved disks mailed, mailed, from ubuntu or mint. rolleyes.gif I thought they were crazy but hey, better then windows.

You talking about it flashing things on startup and shutdown? The start up is handled by a quiet boot setup I think. As for shut down it doesn't bother me.

So that is in fact normal? It does it on both.

I've had it happen...but you should ask someone about how to read the logs and/or slow it down so you can read the errors. On shutdown it's mostly just telling me stuff about somethings I run like preload.

Ahh, okay. Yeah, that would definitely help.

does it to me all the time. failed is likely a hardware bit it has no driver for- you can post what it is, but if you havn't noticed anything while running its likely you don't use it anyway.

Okay! Upon another detailed look, it's just a list of all the processes being started up and ending. So it's no big deal afterall biggrin.gif

Just after a lifetime of using Windows, the words "failed" and "warning" are immediately perceived as bad omens, haha.

Mint is very snappy though. I've read that Debian-based is faster than something that's based off Ubuntu, but the last version of Linux I used was 5.10 (Breezy Badger) so I don't know for sure.

How it LMDE going to stack up to handling things like StarCraft 2? Can it even do so? If it'll have no issues running my games, I might just switch over all together.
