Re: Can't mount USB/other drives after upgrade of kernel

Like any software, kernels can have "regressions" in them. Go back to the old kernel, or try a newer one.

Re: Keepass2 or KeepassXC?

I use KeepassXC. When I decided to use a password safe, I went to most of the sites you mentioned, and several others, and KeePassXC seemed to be the best choice and the most highly recommended.

Re: [Solved] Year of the Linux Desktop?

For me, 2002 was the Year of the Linux Desktop. And every year since. It would have been sooner than that had I known about Linux.

Re: Did you expect that you'll use Linux?!

I expected that I would be using something other than Microsoft OSes as soon as I found out there was such a thing. I hated Microsoft back in the DOS days, before Windows was released. A friend told me about Linux in 2002, and it was goodbye, Microsoft!

Re: How to install Linux mint to new ssd

Ok, since the thinkpad won’t necessarily have exactly an install icon, I image it will have like a BIO window first You boot from the USB stick, and the install icon is part of the running Linux Mint install image. No need to go through BIOS (unless you have to tell it to boot from USB), and works ...

Re: How to install Linux mint to new ssd

I just burned the Mint image to a USB stick, booted to the stick, and clicked the Install icon on the desktop and went through the normal procedure.

Re: How to install Linux mint to new ssd

No different than installing to a hard drive as far as I know. I recently did an install to an ssd, and it went just like any other install.

Re: Script to automate website access and conference call recording

So, you do all the opening the web page and logging in and such with actiona, and only use Bash to start actiona? I had never heard of actiona before, I'll have to check it out.

Welcome aboard, Minux1! I suspect there are millions of old computers gathering dust in a closet that could have been given a new lease on life by installing Linux.

Welcome aboard, secinv! Are you wanting to install Linux on your Surface? It's been a while (several years) since I researched it, but that used to be a major chore.

Re: kernels 4.15, 4.18, 5.0?

If all is working well for you, then there is probably no advantage to installing a newer kernel. If you decide to install another kernel, make sure you keep at least one known working kernel, just in case.
