Its not really a problem for me as I'm back to using debian-multimedia's flashplayer-mozilla package (it installs a more recent version of flash). But some people might want to install / reinstall the flash that originally came with Mepis 8 (for whatever reason) and they wouldn't be able to (worse y...

The package will no longer install. Below is the screen...

I had a look around,and seeing as how Mepis is now derived from Debian and not Ubuntu,best place to look was at Debian. This link may help. Another quote concerning editting grub in Debian found at the above link. I believe what is discussed in that link is outdated (it looks like it applied to Deb...

That is what I have now. What is the quiet option used for? I was reading another post where a menu.lst from Mepis was displayed. I also see that there isn't a splash=silent entry as you mentioned,but I did notice "quiet splash" being used in the menu.lst. So,what is "quiet" used for in Mepis? Is t...

My guess is no because one of the first dependencies I see is libc6 >=2.7-1 (M7 used something like version 2.3.6 of libc6).

Will let Brooko have the final word on this though

Try specifying the full path for the symlinks. (The `uname -r` portion will automatically fill in the release name of the kernel you're using like 2.6.27-1-mepis-smp or 2.6.30-candela) (Also the ` is a GRAVE ACCENT character, not a single quote. Its on the same key as the ~ in the upper left corner ...
