Re: From Tara to Cindy

I recently went from 18.3 Cinnamon to 19 Xfce and tried to use my /home partition for 19. That didn't work out well. Several of my programs didn't work and there were small glitches here and there. I had to install 19 with a clean /home partition, then copied important hidden folders for programs su...

Code: Select all

I noticed that in your previous post in this thread, you ran inxi -Fxz and apt-get update from a root prompt.

Word of advice: inxi -Fxz doesn't need to be run from root prompt, and apt-get update should be run as sudo apt-get update.

Re: Installation question

Thanks guys - some ideas which have pointed me in the right direction. I have another question though. How should I format the partition on the 1TB disk that is going to be used for Mint? ... Your 1 TB disk will probably come as one, NTFS partition. You said that you'll be copy/cloning Windows and ...

Re: Installation question

Welcome Graeme, I have an answer to question 8. I just tested. Yes, it is possible to clone the SSD's installed Mint to your other disk. You can do that using Gparted, which is a partitioning program that comes installed on your live Mint USB stick that you created. You would boot Mint from your USB...

Question about Kernels

I have seen and read that the more recent kernels drop drivers for some older hardware. Why is this?

Thanks.

Re: Mint 19 Install Issue

I noticed that this is your first post. Welcome!

Which OS did you install last? Did you check to see if it was in Legacy or EFI mode while installing.

That might have been the problem.
