Updateing an old Mint n14 xfce install
I finally lugged my lappy in and plugged it in with the idea of makeing
sure I had a working email setup for the install of Jessie on this
machine. Had to reboot twice, I assume because its is sorely in need of
a new battery. The special xenomai kernel that can run LinuxCNC in
simulation mode found something it didn't like first time up. Both
times the boot was delayed by a 10 minute spell of what I assume was
e2fsck since the drive led was on during those times.
It is now booted, and a 64 bit version of Min 17.1 is now a download in
progress since all the repo's for mint 14 have vanished like the morning
fog. Xfce version I believe since this thing is certifiably in the Ford
model T horsepower range today.
Are there any gotcha's other than the formatter during the install and
network crap I'll have to nuke after the install before I burn it and
I have a mouse plugged in. As I see that on 14, both the touchpad and
the mouse are active, what is the name of the utility that completely
disables the touchpad if a real mouse is found?
