Add: some links

I've found some information at http://www.supergrubdisk.org/wiki/Howto_Boot_Windows_without_problems#Grub_solution , they suggest a menu.list to "check if Windows boot's": gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst should contain: title Microsoft Windows XP Professional root noverify (hd0,0) # 'savedefault ma...

fresh GRUB does not load ntldr

My Problem isn't that funny the thread title may sound. But the symptom really looks like this kind of misconfiguration. Someone may ask "Do you have forgotten to 'sudo update-grub'?" and I will answer "NO, Sir!". Some weeks ago I've asked how the migration path to LMDE2 should work. Stable Betsy wa...

Re: Add: migration path to LMDE2 by replacing another OS

Thanks for your brief description above! I just want to record what's new to me by doing an "install or update the linux minty way". :D A very new command to me was inxi(1) , now we're talking about inxi -r There are two very important axioms for me: (1) connection to internet may be poor and (2) Th...

Add: considering mintUpdate and /etc/apt/sources.list

It seems ridicolous to me to give "killer de bug" 10+ or 100+ likes for his postings :shock: Just mentioned from LMDE 2 Betsy FAQ : Upgrade between version of LMDE (from 1 to 2 and from 2 to 3...) should always use dist-upgrade . And of course, if you base your system [e.g. LMDE1] ..., you already k...

Re: Re: continuing with fresh LMDE2-20150320-RC

@killer de bug: Was there any misunderstanding? I don't think so. I've started this thread because I'm a very newbie to any linuxmint flavour at all! You as an expierenced user has adviced to me: Don't waste time with upgrading from LMDE1. Just install LMDE2 from fresh. And so I have done :D Some we...

Re: Re: Just reasoning the cause

Thanks for your replies, now it's time to go into the goring details. I don't see the point in installing LMDE 1 and then upgrading to 2. It would be like installing twice your system... As I'm knowing debian since the end of the last century, I hoped installing Ubuntu (200)8.04 will stop the proble...

migration path to LMDE2

Some weeks ago I've decided to use LMDE with MATE as the default operating system to install on every computer reachable to me;-) Installation was straight forward: downloading linuxmint-201403-mate-dvd-32bit.iso , writing to USB-stick with unetbootin, booting installation system ( Einführung in LMD...
