Re: What Software R U Using for System Backups

Clonezilla -- no muss, no fuss. Just a straight image the whole drive in case of failure and restore the image to get back up and working pronto.

In the bottom right (LM Cinnamon) the time is displayed and when I click on it a calendar pops up/opens. I hav...

Just be happy for what you really have ...
Love my LM Cinnamon :) And yes, I am very appreciative for what I have.

I do think Clem nailed it when they released LMDE though. Now all that's left is to get away from Ubuntu and move to LMDE full-time.

Re: ArmA 3

Well, hmm. I've let a month go by to see if there may be feedback on this thread... *crickets* Just in case people may have looked over my question: Is there anyone that has had success in running ArmA 3 on Linux - and has been able to log in to the servers that their 'Windows' friends play on? If y...

Re: ArmA 3

I would like to hear from someone whom has actually had success/experience/wisdom in getting ArmA3 to run on Linux; not just advice to go read support forum posts as my personal experience with this process has been horrendous. And if you take the time to read through all the support pages on this t...

Re: What games are you playing / are you looking forward to?

I've kicked ArmA 2 to the curb and am now playing ArmA 3 full-time. Does anyone know how to get ArmA 3 to run on Linux? If so, I can kick Windows to the curb as the ONLY reason I'm running Windows is for that game. Maybe here ? https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/184461-arma-3-on-game-on-linux/?hl=li...

Gaming Linux & Microsoft Fears

I really think that Microsoft has a large fear when it comes to gaming on Linux.

If the ARMA series, Call of Duty, and Battlefield were to run natively (NOT emulated) on Linux they would instantly loose millions of Windows users.

mmc0 is the multimedia card reader. Is there an option to disable that device in your BIOS/UEFI setup or otherwise remove it? Unfortunately, no.
