Re: LMDE3 Live Boot hangs

Update: Unfortunately it's a hardware issue. I used some system diagnostics software from the manufacturer and found out there is a problem with the storage controller. System will boot successfully from time to time and then run stable until the next boot. Seems like I need to get the main board fi...

Re: No WiFi connection possible

Update: I tried another run of the Live Session of LMDE3 but this time edited NetworkManager.conf right at the start of the session and configured my wireless connection afterwards. Now I get a stable network connection to my network. I will mark this thread solved for the time being.

[Solved] No WiFi connection possible

I tried to load the LMDE3 Live Session on a HP 8760w notebook with some problems and finally got it to work. However, the WiFi will not connect. I tried the workaround with disabling the random MAC in NetworkManager but could not get the wireles to connect to my network. Just out of curiosity, I boo...

Re: LMDE3 Live Boot hangs

Quick update: I got the system booted in "compatibility mode". During boot at the same step the boot process experienced some problems but didn't hang this time. Tried to find the error or problem through "dmesg" but there were no errors listed. So I'm a bit puzzled right now.

Re: LMDE Users

Not bad indeed. This looks a lot more promising than the figures from rbeltz48.

Mate should be a tad lower than that, provided Cinnamon can be removed completely when changing the DE to Mate. I haven't bothered changing DE's yet since Mint provided a Mate version of the OS so far.

Re: LMDE Users

To: rbeltz48 - I'm not too concerned about memory usage. My current system is an older mobile workstation and I could upgrade to a max. of 8GB if needed. I'm more concerned about reliable hardware support (Core 2 Duo, Nvidia Quadro and Intel WIFI). Nevertheless, with your experience in mind, I get t...

Re: Kernel Update 4.9 briefly in Update Manager

I doubt LMDE2 will ever get a 4-series kernel. Actually, LMDE2 does have the 4.9 kernel in backport. The OP does have the backport repo in the inxi result post above. Maybe the hiccup comes from that but wherever it came from it has happened to me before. [...] Yes, backport is still in the sources...

Re: LMDE Users

Well, I was quite happy with Mint 13 (Ubuntu Precise 12.04). After moving to Mint 17 (LTS for Mint 13 ran out) I was confronted with an increasing incompatibility of Mint 17 and my dated hardware. For that reason I moved to LMDE2 and am quite content with its stability, speed and support for my hard...

I have just received the Thunderbird 52.9.1 Update (Level 1 security update) from the Debian Security repository through Update Manager. I'm on LMDE2 Mate 64-bit.

Re: Kernel Update 4.9 briefly in Update Manager

Hello Karl,

Debian Stretch has Kernel 4.9. Might it be possible that there was a hiccup with the Debian repositories and I got offered updates for Stretch instead of Debian Jessie (LMDE2)?

Re: Kernel Update 4.9 briefly in Update Manager

Hello Karl, I am using LMDE2 Mate 64-bit. Kernel 4.9 update appeared as Level 4 Update in Update Manager along with a very extensive list of Level 1 + 2 updates and a few Level 4 security updates for Kernel 3.16.

Kernel Update 4.9 briefly in Update Manager

Today Update Manager offered an extensive list of Level 1 and 2 updates. However, among the offered kernel updates were also updates to Kernel 4.9. After a refresh, I installed the Kernel 3.16 updates, they were gone again. Was this a hiccup or a preview of things to come?

Re: I am having trouble installing VMWARE on Linux Mint Debian Edition

"Free of charge" is not the same as free software. I'm aware of that, but I can use it non-commercially without legal implications. Do you want to imply, that Debian prohibits the installation of proprietary software? I haven't used VMWare on Debian yet (presently no need for it) but installed it o...

I can't speak from experience with a Mac Book but one of my HP notebooks has a x1600 video card. Even with Mint 13 (Ubuntu 12.04) only the open source Radeon drivers were available. Graphics performance is pretty mediocre and the darn graphics runs very hot with the Linux drivers (it ain't an awful ...

Re: Sorting in Calc

You could try to change the numbering to leading "0" for single digit numbers, i.e. Matthew 7:1-5 ESV to Matthew 07:01-05 ESV. That way you should get the numbers sorted in consecutive order, at least for two digit numbers 1 to 99.
