Re: Upgrade to Mint 19 slows my PC especially boot {RESOLVED moved back to 18.3]

Thanks for that. However, I have done a bare metal rollback to 18.3 from a clonezilla run I did immediately before the 19 clean install. I think I will stay on this until the problem appears to be resolved. I will mark this as resolved for the time being.

Re: Upgrade to Mint 19 slows my PC especially boot

OK thanks for the info. I guess I will stay on 18.3 until a fix comes through, Can you tell me what I should monitor to watch out for the fix? Anyway, it has been an interesting exercise for me as the last time I touched a Unix-like system in anger was 1995!

Re: Upgrade to Mint 19 slows my PC especially boot

As I said I did read that and then installed to kernel 20 but my boot time is till 47 seconds not 10 - do I have to live with this as a penalty for being up to date?

Upgrade to Mint 19 slows my PC especially boot

I have been using Linux Mint MATE for a couple of months (Windows convert). Running quite happily until I decided to upgrade to 19 last week. Luckily I did a full metal backup using Clonezilla to my Nas before I started. So I did a clean install of 64 bit Mint MATE 19 then ran all the updates. My bo...

Re: Correct fstab entry to mount my NAS

It does not have/need a username or password and the whole point is that it is not auto mounting.

That is the whole problem - the sheer amount of questions and answers on this topic show its a can of worms.

[SOLVED] Correct fstab entry to mount my NAS

I have finally dumped all of my Windows systems and moved them all onto Linux Mint. Having solved the nonsense that is getting a modern all-in-one printer scanner to function I have now moved onto connecting my NAS. My problem is the age-old one of not mounting at boot time. If I issue a sudo mount ...

Mounting NAS using fstab causes timing issues

If I am using the wired network it mounts fine...

Re: Managing disk space

I tried to use gparted from the live usb but it will not change anything - I'm obviously doing something wrong. I am happy to re-install from scratch as I have not far yet. What I want to do is this: Split my SSD so that it has a "partition" of 40GB into which I will install Mint including any swap ...

Managing disk space

Each year I try to dump Windows 10 and and move to Linux Mint. So I have done it again and my first question is this. The installation has occupied the whole of my SSD but obviously the base Mint installation only needs about 9gb. When I try to use gparted to shrink the used disk space it will not l...
