Re: Update Manager Issue.

Re: Linux Mint on SSD

these days, you should be just able to use the "something else" option, like normal,
and just point the installer to place / root on the SSD and /home on the HDD,,
and then click on next, to continue with the installation.

Re: USB STICK 64GB Error MONUT

there can be issues on Linux, with those extra large usb sticks,
and generally, they have to be repaired by the operating system, that they were designed for.

ie: you will have to mount it under windows, and run the inbuilt disk check on that usb stick.

Re: Mint in Virtualbox/3d accel question

once you've got the Guest additions installed, then the things like screen resolution should be adjustable, but even then, there are some limits. if fact, the whole Virtual System, is not really that Bombproof, either, but you usually can get some fairly satisfactory results. it's usually just a mat...

Re: Firefox 57.0.1 on Mint 13 System

Hmm Cosmo. that's just a Browser Hijack, & not a Operating System Hijack,

in this case, if the OP is intent on doing this modus operandi ,
then it may pay to assist them, in order to alleviate any potential issues.
