    Talking And then there was success

    I now have 16 fully functional Linux Mint G3's & G4's. I am giving them away to my colleagues. Thank you for each of your valuable tips and links.

    You really do make the difference.

    I can type the following in my sleep now:


    wget http://mac.linux.be/files/mint-installer
    chmod +x mint-installer
    su

    Thank you!

    Fantastic! You are the first to install my Linux Mint on so many machines at once. Really nice to see. I hope you like it.

    linuxopjemac,

    As of today, I have given away somewhere near 40 old Macs with your lovely mint installed. Thank you for your efforts. After I posted the above "success story", I moved on to the little bondi blue iMac cubes. About 10 of them went out the door as well. I kept back 1 cube and 1 G3 tower for me to play with.
    To date, I have not had one person provide feedback, therefore I can gather they either a) haven't powered their unit on or b) are enjoying it. In my profession, I hear when things do NOT work, v. when systems are smoothly purring.

    I wish I taken a pic of all of the bondis lined up, but I moved them out as quickly as I had finished the setup.

    PEACE,
    techgrl
