  1. I have the exact same problem with the live cd, both on my new thinkpad and an old FSC. it’s inherited from lubuntu because the latest version of that distro would not boot into live cd either. and i can’t seem to figure out how to fix it. it’s a pity, i meant to give it a spin.

  2. I had the same problem, but I did another download ot the ISO a couple of days after the first download, and finally it worked.
    Live CD worked fine for me!
    Good distro!

  3. Live CV worked on eee 904HD, eee 900a and an old Dell Inspiron 1150 when I was testing / playing around!

    DVD issue is a non issue if you install VLC…….

    • DVD issue is a non issue if you install VLC…….

      While this is true, I was more concerned with testing this in as close to “out-of-the-box” condition as possible, for purposes of this review.

  5. I had the same problem with the lubuntu 11.04 live CD. After four coasters and a little searching online, it turns out that you need to burn the CD at a slow speed. I used Brasero, chose the lowest speed and got a working live CD.

  6. Live CD worked for me. This is a fast OS. I tweaked mine for autologin and removed some autostart programs as I don’t have bluetooth or a printer and such. Also removed thosed corresponding services from startup. Seemed to speed everything up slightly. Only defect I have been having is if I do a reboot it renders my os useless and I am forces to do a hard shutdown. As long as I do a regular startup and shutdown everything is amazing.
    So far I am the only one with the f’d graphics when selecting reboot as far as I know. Hope a fix comes out for it.

    I also suggest opening terminal and running this sudo:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

    ditch your audio and video players and get VLC and Rhythmbox
    make your taskbar semi-transparent and change your wallpaper and you are good to go. Email me if you need some advice.

    For those not enjoying peppermint,
    You can always get Bodhi Linux, but it is not as user friendly but it compares to peppermints speed.

    WattOS is slower but user friendly. Still faster than Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

    MacPup is also very fast, but confusing for noobs trying to learn. Also a difficult install if you don’t know what your doing.

    Those are my top 4 at the moment. Peppermint still wins. I think I am going to try Peppermint Ice and see if I still have the graphics issue.
