Goodbye Linux Mint 9: back to PCLinux2007 August 16, 2010Posted by NAyK in Firefox, Linux, Linux Mint, PCLinuxOS, Windows.
The shock of the previous post (where My Documents were deleted), became a full blown crisis when I lost my entire ebook folder again in that partition. Thankfully, I did have backups, but my ebooks were indexed through Copernic and I will have to do the indexing all over again.
Anyway… I decided to go back to PCLinux2007 (which I know did work for a while at least) and since I was too shaken to try something new, even PCLinux2010.
After installing, I realised that I was still in Firefox 2.0 and so I wanted to make minimal upgrades, and security updates.
I had to add the following repository: http://kde3.pclosusers.com/pclosfiles
which allowed me to make upgrades (the old repositories of PCLinux2007) were not working. Only this new one did.
Now I’m hoping that I’ll be able to function basically at my home computer, until I fix my Windows operating system.
