Re: How much memory does the graphics adapter have ?

A BIOS update is mentioned often as a possible solution. This article appears to have some info that may help, if you can figure out how the author got his results from converting the data from the dmesg | grep BIOS output, which I assume is in hexadecimal format: https://www.jungo.com/st/document/...

Re: Boot Issues after moving Mint from a BIOS MB to a UEFI MB

Try installing kernel version 4.15.x then reboot and test.
UKUU is one utility which can help installing kernels.

Code: Select all

 uname -r
gives the kernel you have booted to.

Re: Android phone doesnt work on Mint 18.3

Thank you all , and especially phd21 who suggested various solutions.
Finally the solution proved to be simple. I upgraded the computer kernel to 4.17.1 which is released recently, and copying files from the phone to computer is a breeze now.

Re: How much memory does the graphics adapter have ?

The total memory shown by the free -m command will not include memory reserved by the kernel and other hardware devices. The video card can reserve some for it’s display buffers. However, your reserved amount seems excessive. Here is the output of free -m on two of my PCs that also have 8 GB memory...

Your own read out states 3226MB as being free, 52MB "shared" as in used by GPU.
Arithmetic does not match.

How much memory does the graphics adapter have ?

Hello, I am running 64 bit Cinnamon 18.3 version . I have 8gb memory. But I see that only 6.9 gb is used , I would like to know where else is the remaining memory being used. Is the main memory being stolen and being used by the graphics? If yes, how to see it? uma@mint-18-uma ~ $ free -m total used...

Look, I love Mint, but a server edition makes zero sense. All the Mint improvements are aimed at desktop and desktop applications. A desktop is a needless waste of energy on a server. Install Ubuntu server and 'webmin' to administer it and you'll never look back.

Re: Specially Donated Linux Computers

Do you know how many have you donated so far? Not a lot, maybe a dozen or so. I am somewhat limited in that I haven't found enough people to give me their old computers to rehabilitate. I also have installed Linux on a bunch of computers belonging to family, friends, and acquaintances. A warrior fo...

Re: Specially Donated Linux Computers

I also collect old computers, install Linux on them, and give them away to people who need one. If I were donating to veterans, I wouldn't care what kind of discharge they had. If they need a computer, I will give it to them. Lots of kudos to you for the noble task. Do you know how many have you do...

Installed 19 cinnamon last night and so far works pretty good. wine not working and gdebi not working unless you start it in a terminal with sudo gksudo no longer works in 19.
other than that everything is fast and looks good.
Is it faster than 18.3? Not only booting but operation also.

Re: System sometimes forgets to boot programs

I never faced this problem while using Mint for 5 years now.
For this you will have to file a bug report for somebody to work on it, I dont know the process though.

Re: custom kernel compile

We get more and more powerful computers with powerful CPUs and larger and larger memory.
So why would one remove the so called bloatware when the hardware is perfectly capable of handling it
