Re: Is this serious vulnerability patched for Mint?

There's an old saying, and I know I've mentioned it here on LMF before but I think it bears repeating: What's the difference between a computer sales person and a used car sales person? One of them knows they are lying to you. Which one? I suspect it would be both of them know they are lying.

Re: Mint20 asking for root password on every installation

And , as is my particular problem, what if one does not recall or remember what the password was for the first user created upon Mint's installation? Then start putting your passwords in a password safe, like KeePassXC. Or write your passwords down on a piece of paper and put it in your sock drawer...

Re: I think I'm done with Gmail. Maybe I'm even ready to pay for email?

I am sick to death of companies spying on us and using the information they steal to their advantage. ...

Re: No /dev/ttyUSB0 when usiing WSJTX with Linux Mint 20.2

I think on my laptop I had to set it for ttyACM0. But don't have the laptop handy to check it. Or maybe that was on my NanoVNA or my tinySA.

Re: the "new" Verizon hates their customers

I'm on Verizon, have been for maybe 25 years, and don't plan to switch any time soon. When I owned an electronics service company, I had a guy who did home service calls for me. Since Eastern Washington is a relatively sparsely populated area and there weren't a lot of service shops, we did service ...

Definitely look it up first, I am not an expert. But it seems to me you want to change the owner of the drive.

Re: How do I get 20.2 to use my new swap space?

What do you mean by "added swap space"? Do you mean that you added a drive you want to use for swap? Or that you created a new partition you wish to use as swap? If either of those, you don't need or want to create a swap file , all you need to do is edit your fstab file to point to that d...

Gabe2004, you'd probably be more likely to get help by starting your own topic instead of tagging on to an old (dead) one.
