    Published at LXer: The Korora project has released version 23 (code name "Coral") which is now available for download.

  • Issue#220875: Linux - Dell Latitude D610 DVD issue Mint 17.3

    Hello gang. I have this Dell laptop with Mint 17.3 Rosa on it It works fine But I am always wanting to tinker. I had Ubuntu on a Sony laptop and I liked it until that laptop died I was thinking about putting it on this Dell, but the DVD does not seem to work properly. I know the DVD is fine as it is what I used to install Ubuntu on the now dead machine When I put the DVD in, the icon for a music DVD pops up ( I do have the boot order set correctly as I installed Mint from a DVD) When I try booting to the DVD, it does not recognize it and goes right past it and boots from the HD Any DVD (not music) I put in it thinks its a music DVD and I cannot open it So apparenty there is something wrong with the DVD driver? Any insight? I dont really have to get this to work, all I use this for is for the internet and maybe some of the Libra office and Gimp programs and print from it and all that works just fine Just curious what could be wrong thanks
