Re: Partition sizes for new install? 1 for Mint system- 1 for Home

Final question, I think... When version 20 becomes 20.1 do you have to install 20.1 as if it were a new OS? Meaning... You download 20.1 and just replace version 20... or would it be like Windows updates which seem to automatically and relatively "seamlessly" make the changes for the upgrade leavin...

Fred... you said... "In the install menu, when it prompts you for partitioning"

My question: What install menu? Will that menu appear when I select "install Mint" from the bootable USB?
That's it!

Re: Partition sizes for new install? 1 for Mint system- 1 for Home

Hi Fran_3, Welcome to Mint! This is a good idea for sure, but it's a little bit more complicated to do. If you have a 2TB drive, then I'd say use 75-100 GB for your system partition (it's mounted at / ) and use the remaining for /home . Mint does not create a separate home partition automatically, n...

Re: What distro would you use for your main daily driver other than Mint?

Without Mint, LMDE specifically, I'd probably hop back and forth between Debian, Ubuntu, and Arch. MATE or Gnome for all -- I've got to where I like Gnome a lot more than I used to.


Then again macOS is now my daily driver so there's that... :lol:

I read that Firejail has caused many problems, is it so?

We've closed several issues with Zoom recently -- as far as I know there are no remaining issues...

Re: LMDE3 updated iso

Hi @topolink,
Not that I'm aware of, short of completely rebuilding the iso image yourself. That said, IIRC Clem and co did release an updated LMDE 2 iso at some point, so it's not impossible that they'd do the same for LMDE 3. Honestly though with LMDE 4 so close I wouldn't expect this.
Cheers!

Re: The following packages have unmet dependencies

Hi @urdrwho
Can you give a bit more info about this? What command/steps are you taking before you see these errors?

Also could you run the following for me in your terminal and post the output?

Code: Select all

Re: How Many Partitions Are Allowed on a Drive?

Hi Lady Fitzgerald! :smile: The answer depends on if your disk uses the MBR (older) or GPT partition scheme. If it's MBR then you can only have 4 maximum*, if GPT then there's no practical limitation. To check, run the following in your terminal please: sudo fdisk -l Then look for "Disklabel type". ...

Not relevant to the topic (I do, of course, agree with you that attack vectors on Android are very different from those on Linux) but I felt like pointing out that my Android phone has got the same bash shell as my desktop, and if you're going to use the shell you typically add BusyBox.
