Re: [TUTORIAL] Installing Mint on a Windows 8/8.1/10 Computer

Hi, I have a Mint 18.1 setup and was thinking of dual booting Windows 10 in order to run some software I'm interested in (and won't run under wine). At any rate, it seems most tutorials cover adding linux to a windows installation, not the other way around. Although, an earlier reply suggested its p...

Re: blu-ray drive only sees DVD content since 17.1 upgrade

I'm still lost as to what may have happened. i'm wondering whether a clean install would help, but i can't find what may have happened between 17 and 17.1 that may have caused this. I tried using the latest kernel and nouveau drivers, but nothing. dvd still works fine. in case i didn't include enoug...

blu-ray drive only sees DVD content since 17.1 upgrade

Hi, I have a LG blu-ray drive and, before upgrading to 17.1 from 17, i had no trouble mounting the drive with a blu-ray disc. I was never able to watch the movie, but i was able to back it up and watch it using XBMC and plex. Recently, i noticed that blu-rays are no longer recognized. The drive only...

Re: random boots & shutdowns

I have a few ideas about this: 1) Do you have your computer connected to a battery backup? Random power surges or brownouts could cause erratic behavior like that. 2) How old is the system. This could be a problem with the motherboard and POWER_GOOD signal that it must detect to keep the system on....

random boots & shutdowns

Hi, I've been having an issue where my computer would randomly boot up and shutdown. It started on Mint 15 w/nvidia driver. I found a post somewhere that suggested changing UTC line (in BIOS) in /etc/default/rcS to "no" would help and it actually seemed to for a bit. Until i upgraded to Mint 16 (64-...

Re: Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

I've had no luck since my last post as well. In fact, I think i tried so many different things to fix the problem, i made everything worse. In addition to apt not updating properly, i made a mess of grub. software started failing on me as well. i gave up and reinstalled mint 15 just under 2 weeks ag...

Re: Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

makes sense. do you think these settings could be causing the boot issues though? still, it's worth making some adjustments, if not for boot then for overall stabilty and performance.

Re: Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

Hi, Below is my fstab. i replaced uuid's and parts of IP's with 'xxx', though i'm sure it doesn't make a difference. The basic setup is this: * root partition on the ssd (/dev/sdb1) * the home directory is on a standard sata hdd (2TB -- /dev/sda1) * mount another sata hdd labeled Movies * mount 2 fo...

Re: Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

Thanks. I was really hopeful this would work, but it didn't for me. I tried 5 seconds and 10 seconds. My issue may be slightly different since I get the "Mountall: Disconnected from plymouth" message (on tty7). So, reviewing the code in the mdm.conf, i don't think it makes it to the 'exec mdm' stage...

Re: Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

Hi, I just wanted to say that i've been following this thread very closely since i've been having the same exact issue around the same time as you. I've covered many of the same steps with about the same amount of luck, unfortunately. i was thinking of switching to LightDM, but it seems to bring a t...
