I don't think the acpi_osi cheat GDixon suggested will have any affect on a vm, it's just for certain laptops.

Is there a way to just display a splash screen during boot in effect hiding test text messages during startup? I figured there'd be a cheat code for this but didn't see anything. - mike Are you asking about a splash when booting a M12 Live session or after it's installed to harddrive? Mepis 12 come...

...Mepis 12_64bit has multiarch support, you would have had to remove it, if it's not there. ... Sorry about that. I knew that multiarch needed to be enabled to run the apt-get commands Stevo posted with the ":i386" added to them, but I didn't know that Mepis 12_64bit already had multiarc...

Note that in Stevo's earlier post here http://forum.mepiscommunity.org/viewtopic.php?p=353354#p353354 that he added a ' :i386 ' to the packagename in most of the apt-get commands. That's to install the i386 version of each of those packages, but multiarch support needs to have been enabled for those...

I've been using SMplayer for a longtime now. I think Stevo first added it to the CR repos way back with Mepis 7.0.

I'm rethinking the wget download. Mx-packageinstaller might have a problem with that because it's setup to install packages from the repos instead of downloaded packages. Maybe just have it enable the oracle repo, and then run apt-get: apt-get install $(apt-cache search virtualbox-[1-9]+.[0-9] | gre...

Looks like that would have to be recoded for MX-15 and Jessie, right? Yeah it probaby would need to be. You might be able to replace the "wheezy" with a string that you set with the results of some other command, something like codename="$(apt-cache policy | grep $(cat /etc/debian_ve...

That's how it looked when I enabled the repo to install it (not through Package Installer...d'uh). since there is the potential for confusion with multiple versions, might be a good candidate for the package installer though. I think this should get the latest version from the oracle repo, whether ...

It might be that in previous installs (MX-14 and/or Mepis) you had Synaptic's " Consider recommended packages as dependencies " preference checked. I doubt it, unless it was the default setting. or the oracle virtualbox repo enabled, which is configured in MX but not enabled by default. Y...
