Re: Mint upgradation from 17.3 to 18

I have the exact same error in my upgrade logs, except for this one: Cannot open file /var/lib/doc-base/info/FORCE-REREGISTER.flag for writing: Permission denied Running install-docs --install-changed completes without new errors though. Does the file /var/lib/doc-base/info/FORCE-REREGISTER.flag ex...

Re: "Lost" 1.1 gigabytes of memory: where did it go?

Thank you, xenopeek! The Superuser post led me in the right direction. It appears to be a known issue with these models. Nothing can be done about it. While the O/S and the cpu support addressing beyond 4GB, the chipset does not. See http://ark.intel.com/products/27858/Intel-82945PM-Memory-Controlle...

Re: "Lost" 1.1 gigabytes of memory: where did it go?

You may have to turn "memory remapping" on in the BIOS. Here is a similar topic where that was the solution: http://superuser.com/questions/453201/only-3-2gb-of-4gb-ram-detected-on-64-bit-debian. Your graphics card may be mapping its RAM in the 3 GB - 4 GB address space. So questions I have about t...

Re: "Lost" 1.1 gigabytes of memory: where did it go?

I did try another thing. Since I know that different operating systems treat BIOS information differently, I wondered what would happen if I installed something else. As it happens, I have a DVD of a preview version of Windows 10 64 bit lying around and I tried to install it. It actually worked! I w...

<SOLVED>:"Lost" 1.1 gigabytes of memory: where did it go?

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite A100-497 (PSAA9E-0P004QSP) with 2 GB of memory that was running Windows XP (horribly at that) and thought it would be a good thing to try Mint. I also thought that it might be fun to try replace the drive with a refurbished SSD. I installed from a DVD using the linuxmi...
