The release is still has several bugs. There is still some housekeeping to do.

No, i'm talking about your hint above concerning the release of a Mint 13 image or something else for the fitPC2.

A small hint:
in my installation of Mint 13 Mate on a Z550 fitPC2i (backported Mate 1.4, EMGD 1.16, activated C-states, WLAN, Kernel 3.2.0-38) the PC hangs during shutdown/restart in some cases - obviously due to some problems with IRQ-handling (i assume WLAN is the bad boy).
After search & test i've added a noapic irqpoll to the kernel boot parameters.
Edit the /etc/default/grub und update grub:
Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash psb_gfx.dummy=1 noapic irqpoll"

After that all problems are gone.

Thanks for the hint!
You should extend with vmalloc, too, like this:

Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash psb_gfx.dummy=1 vmalloc=192M noapic irqpoll"
