Broadcom B4311 wireless

Offered to install LM17.2 on an old HP Pavillion DV6000 laptop for a friend. Dual boot setup with W-XP. Wireless works fine in windows & the wireless "on/off" switch functions as expected. Once LM installed - absolutely no wireless. Driver manager was using the sta driver for the Broad...

Re: Nemo Crashes When Preferences Changed from Default

It's been a while & I've not had time to test different setups.... However, is anyone still having troubles, besides me? The inevitable has happened. The entire USB drive was wiped out when I attempted to use it to transfer some data files on to the LM hard disk. Fresh boot without USB, plugged ...

Re: Can't access live environment

For what it's worth.... I ran into similar problems last October. (http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=179566#p931609) Although the next update seemed to fix the problem for me (I was able to reset the BIOS to AhCI and get proper function), maybe you've run into some variation of th...

Re: Dumb improvements that have never been done...

If only 1 of these could be done, I'd push for the background first & foremost! VERY frustrating to see things disappear. And disappointing when introducing linux to interested people who complain and want to know why I can't fix it! And I've tried. Unfortunately, choosing foreground / backgroun...

Re: USB Image Writing

As so much of this centers around the usb interface, I wonder if other usb problems are symptoms of the same underlying "problem". In particular, this link http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=182599 shows how myself and others have been experiencing desktop, nemo, and usb ...

Re: Nemo Crashes When Preferences Changed from Default

Morning, caiomarcos! Like you, I'm too new to properly interpret the logs. But I notice that you don't seem to double mount the drive as happened with brianpac. He had 2 mount statements in his log. If I understand correctly, at the end of your log it looks like your mount failed. I also find it int...

Re: Nemo Crashes When Preferences Changed from Default

Morning, caiomarcos! Both at the begging and after my last post, I've searched but not found anything specific. I found a number of posts about nemo, desktop and even some USB issues, but nothing I felt was specifically applicable. Have you? As an other piece of info, are you still able to recreate ...

Thanks for the info, Mark. Your points were well taken. I haven't loaded any restricted drivers on my system and forgot to mention it. As for "respecting" a partion on install from DVD, I really appreciate that reminder! Although it was something I looked closely at before my first install...

[SOLVED] Can I do "Bare Metal" restore to Different System?

I've been looking around and haven't found an answer for this particular question. I've seen stuff from clonzilla, backula, and others talking about bare metal restores, but they seem to be either speical software for server restores or just replacing the hard drive in a single system. But maybe I j...

Re: USB Image Writing

As stated before, from one perspective, I agree with you. And, as such, your analogy is valid. Especially when frustrated because something used to work and doesn't seem to do so now. But ALL analogies fail at some point, because they are all just that - analogies. In this case I consider: GM has be...

Re: USB Image Writing

I can see your point. And, from a sufficiently high enough perspective, it is entirely valid. However, from my perspective, it almost seems the question should be "inverted". All professions support many specialists. Doctors of internal medicine, hand surgeons, cancer specialists, and even...

Re: Nemo Crashes When Preferences Changed from Default

Interesting. Question: Does nemo restart/ desktop reappear if you open a terminal and type < sudo nemo >, as it did for me in the post of 21 Nov? I can't help but wonder what is different between the first instance of nemo that dies and the second instance that seems to run just fine. Especially sin...

Good Morning! I've been searching everywhere for what I'm sure is a simple answer. However, almost everything is about resume not restarting. Error logs, power settings, and inxi output below. If more data is needed, it may take a day or two to coordinate with the client, but it can be had. If this ...
