xed text editor and large files

Is there some limit on the size of text files that can be opened with xed in Mint 18.1 (64bit and mate desktop)? I have a large .pgn file (text file of chess games) 29MB, that I needed to edit. xed freezes trying to load it. It loads smaller .pgn files ok. I have 4GB of RAM so there should be no pro...

Re: dmesg output

I'd consider it an info or warning then. 46875 Hz is the sampling frequency used for audio on PAL (European) video signals. I'm unclear as to why 33024 Hz would be used instead as the sampling frequency. Or why a sampling frequency for PAL would be desired? :-) Google says that 33 KHz sampling freq...

Re: dmesg output

I did a search for "current rate 33024 is different from the runtime rate 46875" and found results that indicate this is about your kernel audio driver and/or your audio device. Others that had this message didn't have working sound. Do you have any problems with sound? I use USB digital speakers w...

Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot doesn't work

If you are installing on a UEFI system, you have to install Mint in UEFI mode.

This is probably not the cause of the problem, but it is a possibility. Are you waiting long enough for bootup to complete? After so many b...
