Re: Mint 18.1 - 4 minute startup

I thought the swap was ruled out as the cause? I keep seeing these kinds of swap issues: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=240335&p=1283048, so I would try that "uncommenting" that it suggests. (not taking a stand on the issue should you or should you not use swap ...

Re: Mint 18.1 - 4 minute startup

Because of the critical-chain results showing the same UUIDs for both device and swap, with the device in RED, I ran the command blkid and then xed /etc/fstab. The blkid result for sda1 shows: UUID=3109dae0-caf4-4407-b71b-ec78fbcb4c69 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1. The sda5 shows: UUID=3d3bbf6c-d139...

Re: Cant add mobile broadband connection

Let's clarify exactly what the card is first. Do one of these links look like your system? http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/tech-specs/laptops/thinkpad-x1-carbon-2nd-gen/ http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/x-series/x1-carbon-2/#tab-tech_specs If so the card should be an "Intel Wireless 7...

Re: Mint 18.1 - 4 minute startup

I think the OP gave up and I don't blame him. Something is funny here and I'm going to forget about it unless he comes back. :lol: I'd kind of like him to try 17.3 Cinnamon and see what his boot time is. So far no 32-bit version including Cinnamon 17.3 will boot on my 64-bit machine at all. And I'm ...

I've used dvds couple of times to do an install. Haven't timed it ever, but it sure does take time to boot compared to usb. You mentioned USB before but I searched this thread and can't find what I'm looking for. Did you try it from a USB stick and get much better boot time results? I dunno why thi...

The very first time I downloaded the 18.1 Cinnamon 32 bit iso using my Toshiba laptop with Win 10. Using the Win 10 default iso image burner I burned and verified the iso to a blank DVD+R 4x DVD. Today, using the Dell GX280SD, with Mate installed, I downloaded a new 18.1 Mate 32 bit iso using a dif...

Re: Install Linux Mint alongside Windows 8

Look at the guide Administrollaattori posted.


Are you saying there is no GRUB menu then? You get no screen with OS choices to select from? You may have installed in the wrong 'mode' since you most likely have EFI.

Re: Mint 18.1 - 4 minute startup

I installed 18.1 Mate on my friends Dell. It powers up to the desktop in 1m16s. That's still kind of slow for any version of Linux. We bartered a bit and I came home with that Dell. Based on what I experienced with the Cinnamon installation over the past few days I will not try to reduce this start...
