Another Walkman MTP odysee thread?

Hey there, i'm still running that old Sony Walkman i bought begin of 2011. Even in my windows days i never used any sony software to manage the playlist, windows explorer had a very basic GUI for playlist files. Now that i run linux and after years of only using the MTP connection to transfer files ...

Re: Encrypted /home unmounts automatically

I could narrow it down a bit, but just a few minutes ago when i bootet my laptop it happened again. So it seems i have a 100% reproducibility for now... After login Home was decrypted automatically. I did nothing but started thunderbird, Thunar in my home folder and a shell with tail -f /var/log/sys...

Encrypted /home unmounts automatically

Hi there, i hope this has not been asked somewhere else, i could not find any hints on this. After all the trouble i had with long boot times, i have had the following issues three times in the last days: After logged in, my XFCE desktop loaded and i could even start a browser or Thunderbird.

Re: Boot partition too small?

You could eliminate the swap partition completely. If you have 16 gb of RAM you will probably never need even 1 gb of swap. I have been running Linux for years, right now openSUSE Leap 15, and I have never used a swap partition. I have 16 gb of RAM and swap will never be used. Yeah you're probably ...

Re: Slow boot after fresh install

So... in my previous post i had told that i had un-commented the /swap which resulted in having to type the extra password for the encrypted /swap partition a couple of times (even when sudo apt-get installing something i had to type the /swap password again. weird). It had NO effect after rebooting...

Re: Boot partition too small?

So... I read some forums and all said "better not touch the /boot". Even GParted warns me to touch anything like that... However... I just shrinked the Swap (decreased it to 16GB - that should be enough... not sure if i actually need it..). Then i moved the EFI Parition "to the right" by 1GB into th...

Re: Boot partition too small?

you shouldn't need to move either boot or efi partitions,, but you should make that boot partition, into something that's closer to ~500Mb in size .. Okay.... but my /boot and EFI partitions are tightly aligned withhout any empty space in between. So increasing /boot means moving EFI. & yeah - that...

Re: Boot partition too small?

well... /boot and /EFI are now configured. What would you recommend? I could boot into a live system and change the partition layout with GParted. I could move /boot to the end of my GPT, i have 32GB Swap there which is probably really overkill. How would i recreate the boot loader without breaking ...

Re: Linux Mint 19: Full Disk Encryption results in veeeery slow/long boot process

After investigating on this i do not think that it has to do with Full Disk Encryption after all.

For a cleaner discussion i'll abondon this thread and started a new one discussing another potential problem

Hi, Thanks a lot for your reply! I just checked again when i started the live-system in a virtual machine. If i choose the "do something different" option i will need to completely setup the partitioning manually. (I do not feel very comfortable with that, but figured what i need to somehow...) Firs...

When i wanted to use Full Disk Encryption with LUKS and LVM now, i had not seen any option to split my 1TB SSD in 50 + 950 G...
