Linux Mint: This didn’t go to 11

Filed under
Linux

Regular readers will remember that I’d moved everything to Linux Mint. Most of the desktop boxes were running Mint 11, but I kept the laptops on Mint 10 because of a power regression in the kernel. It’s not such a big deal if desktop processors burn a little more power, but on a laptop it means short battery life and heat problems.

I think I left it that way for about two days before moving back to Mint 10.
