T430: Installation log

Some stupid notes and a time log of last night's Linux Mint install on the T430.
One word comes to mind: Blazing fast!

04/03/2013 11:53:12 PM
Boot from USB

04/03/2013 11:58:33 PM 
Setup WiFi & start the Linux Mint installation... The usual stuff, the whole HDD for Linux, only a / partition and swap and, of course, an encrypted $HOME for this travelling laptop.

04/04/2013 12:07:33 AM
The installation is done. Mighty fast...

04/04/2013 12:08:57 AM
First Linux Mint boot on the lappie (!)

04/04/2013 12:13:22 AM
Start removing unwanted programs (Banshee, Thunderbird, Firefox, stuff like that...)

04/04/2013 12:24:15 AM 
Install updates - Need to get 426 MB of files...

04/04/2013 01:01:01 AM
Install dist-upgrade updates. Kernel and a couple of VLC packages.

04/04/2013 01:06:07 AM
Kernel reboot... The first one on the lappie (!)

04/04/2013 01:17:04 AM
Install extra programs - Need to download something like 340 MB of files...

sudo apt-get install openssh-server emacs23-nox openvpn virtualbox wine rar\
unrar gip chromium-browser gimp ia32-libs evolution skype rhythmbox

04/04/2013 01:49:25 AM
Start restore from USB external drive... On this case, only 73 GB of files, mostly music and some crap from work.

04/04/2013 03:01:35 AM
Finish restoring files.
