Re: Mint 20: Slow boot time AMD Ryzen 5

Sorry to bump this back to the top but as a newbie I am completely stuck with this, clearly there are plenty of errors but I would not know where to start sorting them out. Once Linux mint 20 does eventually boot it works ok so am reluctant to reinstall it, quite annoying that a second desktop runni...

Re: Boot update

Thanks,
Must be down to something else.
I Use a dual boot system, not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Boot update

Has the boot file been altered in a recent update for Mint 15 ?
I ask because over the last week or so it has taken ages for my computer to boot up.
If it's not that is there anything else that could have caused such a slow down of the booting process.
Everything else works fine.

Re: Update problem

Thanks for that.
As everything else is working ok a reinstall would be a bit drastic.
Rebooted and tried what you suggested and this seems to have cleared the problem.

Re: Update problem

That sounds a bit drastic surely there is an alternative solution ?
If possible I would rather hang on until Mint 17 becomes available before doing a fresh install as I understand it will provide LTS.

Transferring photographs from Linux to Ipad

Is there an easy way to transfer photographs using Linux Mint 15 64 Cinnamon to an ipad ?
The ipad in question is a first generation ipad.
I already have the necessary usb cable that plugs into the ipad.

Re: Report error and who to ?

Yes I have manually run sudo-dpkg and the problem is sorted.
What I was enquiring about was who to report the error to, unless of course by running sudo-dpkg the error is automatically reported
