基于 Ubuntu 的发行版，Linux Mint 14.1 发布
Linux Mint 是一个基于 Ubuntu 的发行版。他继承了 Ubuntu 的众多优点，同时也在 Ubuntu 的基础上加入很多自己优秀的特性。其目标是提供一种更开箱即刻可用的用户体验，免去用户要安装系统后还要自己安装一系列满足基本使用需求的软件。它包括提 供浏览器插件、多媒体编解码器、对DVD播放的支持、Java和其他组件。它与 Ubuntu 软件仓库完全兼容。可以毫不夸张地说 Linux Mint 在某些方面的用户体验比 Ubuntu 还要优秀。
The ISO images for Linux Mint 14 “Nadia” were updated and labelled “14.1″. All the links were updated on the website and in the announcements to point to the new ISOs.
If you’re already running Linux Mint 14, you don’t need to reinstall.
The new ISO images provide fixes for the following issues:
High CPU usage, low performance on Intel GPU
This was caused by a race condition between Plymouth and Xorg and affected owners of Intel cards in particular. Rather than using the “intel” driver, Xorg was randomly using “modesetting” or “fbdev” and the desktop was rendered by the CPU rather than the GPU using LLVMPIPE software rendering.
This issue was fixed in MDM 1.0.8 which is available as an update in Maya backports and in Nadia and which is installed by default on the new ISOs.
No DNS resolution, Internet not working in virtual machine
Linux Mint now uses OpenDNS as a fallback for DNS resolution. If the system fails to connect to a DNS server, the resolution is done via OpenDNS. This guarantees better out of the box connectivity especially in virtual machines.
Installer fails to install grub-efi
A bug was fixed and the installer now successfully installs the grub-efi packages in EFI installations. You still need to disable Secure Boot and depending on the implementation of EFI on your system you might have to specify the location of the EFI boot file (EFI/BOOT/grubx64.efi).
