Re: New Partition Table Can't Be Selected

rather than using the Installer to create an New Table on SDb - - use the Gparted program instead: - it's also available on that Live Media that you are running. - - Device - Create Partition Table make sure that you do select SDb - naturally. then point the Installer to the <now> vacant usb stick ....

Re: HP Laserjet P1505 will not print

if you now run that command in Terminal as:
sudo -c 'journalctl -u cups.service --since="None" --until="2018-11-20 19:17:09"' > troubleshoot-logs.txt
does that command now work - after you have typed in your own user password ?.

in just this year, there has actually been a distinct action against the use of those older machines,, and the iMac machines are no exception. it may just be the continuous push to 64bit machines, but there is a lot of 32bit machines out there, and folks are still keen to continue to utilise those m...

Re: Can't boot on VirtualBox...

can you still get to the Live Boot Menu ?

if so, then try the 'compatibility mode' & which is usually the 2nd option of that Boot Menu,
& then see if you can now get to an working desktop.

Re: Replace osx on imac with linux

technically you should be able to boot & run an LM18x series on an iMac,
but there has been a big shift in the LM19x series & that does seem to have dropped some older machines
out of the equation, unfortunately.

Re: Linux and Floppy B drives?

the main issue is usually in the Host Linux System, as lot's of Linux Systems don't recognise an floppy drive / disk
& so the virtual machine may also not easily be recognise that drive.

Re: Linux and Floppy B drives?

you can indeed use virtual machines with old versions of Windows or Mac OS & they will work.
- did that with win-98 last year 8) as always, it's the video that is the biggest hurdle, to overcome,
or you will get a reduced video screen. size :(

Re: Linux and Floppy B drives?

that's something that I've always had issues with:
- some linux's are better than others, when recognising an floppy disk / drive ..

for me, I've got an older Laptop, that still works, and could use that,
or an old win_xp machine, did work as well.

Re: (SOLVED) 2 Partitions Instead Of 3

well - you do need to be careful, about which programs that you do UN-install.
