Re: hard drive partition

With that being said, and since I don't hibernate my computers, I would partition it this way: /boot - 500MB (but only if installing on UEFI/GPT disk) /swap - 4GB or 8GB, depending on the computer I'm installing on / - 30GB (or more), I like to have a bit of wiggle room /home - the balance that's s...

with an older CPU & just 1Gb of RAM,
- that machine would be better suited to using either XFCE or Mate as a desktop solution.

you could also try using anti-X:

which is another Linux System, that is still designed for those Older PCs.

Yep - - this LM19 series is installing a whole lot more kernel(s) than is normally done. & so your drive / partition will fill up, rather quickly . . ... .. this will be even more apparent if do use a separate / root & /home partitions, & where that / root partition will surely fill up. if you are s...

Re: My whine about Wine and Mint 19

if you do search in Software Manager for ./wine
then you will actually get three results:

- PlayonLinux
- Wine tricks
you could install all three of them, as they are all quite useful,
in getting some Windows Programs to work .. ..

Hi CapnJimbo,

you've posted your issue a couple of time, and the Guys have responded to both.
& thus I've merged both of your queries into the one Topic.

NB: you can, usually get a better response, if you don't make multiple requests,

Re: Dual boot

when creating an Windows Boot Media - you should use the 'Media Creation Tool':

this won't work under any Linux System, though & you will get re-routed to:
