Mint Team Rushes out 14.1 Update

Filed under
Linux

The Linux Mint team today announced an update to the recently released 14.0 "Nadia." There were a few showstoppers that squeaked by quality control that needed to be addressed. Fortunately, current users of 14.0 can just run the updater.

14.1 was released today due to several issues. One of the more serious was a "race condition between Plymouth and Xorg and affected owners of Intel cards in particular. Rather than using the "intel" driver, Xorg was randomly using "modesetting" or "fbdev" and the desktop was rendered by the CPU rather than the GPU using LLVMPIPE software rendering."
