Re: Linux Mint 20: Device not managed. (Abandon Hope)

Do you have a Timeshift snapshot you can roll back with? I didn't have timeshift setup. I think I got it setup now. I think I finally got it fixed. I had to boot into the Live Media, and copy/replace a bunch of files. Somewhere in the haystack was the problem. /etc/netplan/ 1-network-manager-all.ya...

Re: Linux Mint 20: Device not managed. (Updated 01/02/21)

The only reason I can come up with for this going bad is that yesterday the power went off. Maybe a file got corrupt. I've been searching for answers with google all day! In that time I could of just re installed an OS. I think because Linux Mint gave me trouble 3 times in a roll that I might need t...

In advanced option in grub, boot from all kernels listed there and test.
I only have two installed. I tried it, It doesn't make any difference which kernel I'm running. :(

[Solved] Linux Mint 20: Device not managed.

Before I create my boot disks, I always do a complete verification of my ISO files. I'm currently typing this from my old Xubuntu 18.04 install. My Linux Mint 20 XFCE bugged out again. The last time it bugged out I lost the ability to control my firewall. I had to do a full reinstall to fix it. This...

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

This is my new partition for my new install. I like having large swap partitions. Sometimes I'm not paying attention and over run the ram. 01 Screenshot_2020-12-29_15-24-13.png My Current Fstab 02 Screenshot_2020-12-29_15-12-33.png System is currently running smooth. https://youtu.be/qlqqCjxnDKE

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

Be that as it may, seems you have two choices. Live with the EFI partition, though presumably you can recover the unallocated space for the other one. Or reinstall using the Something Else method, which will require you to redo configurations, but will be a cleaner system in the long run. Out of cu...

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

I'm that I've been gone for so long. I needed to leave this problem for a while and think about it. Today I tried again, and things are still not working correctly. For some reason this particular Linux Mint 20 install needs at least one EFI partition to work correctly. Otherwise it gets slow and sc...

Re: Linux Mint 20 XFCE Firewall Not Loading (Had to Reinstall)

The obvious next question is " How did / end up owned by other than root?" You, or someone else, must have done something they should not have. Any ideas? I have no idea, and that installation is gone. All I can do is speculate. I'm the only person who uses the computer. On Linux Mint 17 ...

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

I'm back with a quick update.

Using Gparted Live I was able to move the Boot partition. I was not able to resize the EXT4 and Extended partitions. The extra space remains. The system still boots.

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

@Flemur Thanks for the info. I am still trying stuff.... I did a little experiment. I used gparted to remove the boot flag from the first partition and put it on the second partition. I tried to reboot, and the computer booted. Next I deleted the first partition. The computer still booted. The extra...

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

... perhaps I can wait until 20.1 comes out, to start all over. FYI, not fixed in the beta and (per Clem) won't be fixed in the final release, as it's an upstream problem (a bug in the Ubuntu installer). As for reverting to 19.3, surely it would be easier to learn how to do a manual install, so you...

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

I'm testing Linux Mint 19.3 inside Virtualbox. I got to see if Puddletag is in the repos or not. If it is, then I might just run 19.3

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

@Flemur

Commenting it out was the wrong thing to do! The computer booted slowly, and then it ran slow. The mouse got really jerky. And the mounting didn't do as you expected it would.

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

I'll give it a try. I think you guys might be interested in seeing the fstab file. Comment it out in fstab and it won't show up under Devices . Ok # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as ...

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

Why does EFI use the old crappy fat32 file system? Compatibility. FWIW, you don't need to have the EFI partition mounted after you boot, and can comment-out its line in /etc/fstab. I'll give it a try. I think you guys might be interested in seeing the fstab file. /etc/fstab: static file system info...

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

I think that is crazy that you had to go through all of that. I spent probably 5 hours installing and setting things up. I don't feel like erasing it all. I'm wondering if maybe, if everything will work as is, then perhaps I can wait until 20.1 comes out, to start all over. I was very early in my i...

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

Does your disk currently have those three partitions? Probably if I would of used gparted to completely remove all the partitions before running the installer, things might have turned out the way they did before. That is what I did. From the thread I mentioned in my prior post, "I followed th...

This isn't the first time I've installed Linux Mint on this computer. I feel like I know what I'm doing with that. I can not understand how come this particular release of Linux Mint is partitioning this way. I'm not the one doing the partitioning the installer did that. It's a bug. There were a nu...

Re: LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

If you really don't need UEFI mode, I guess you could disable it altogether in BIOS. The installer will then just boot into Legacy mode. Create a new msdos partition table and install in Legacy. This isn't the first time I've installed Linux Mint on this computer. I feel like I know what I'm doing ...
