Re: Update manager issue

Is Chrome the cause of my Update Manager issue?

I started to dump Chrome (which I like) but cant figure out how to save my bookmarks.

Thank you I might like to try chromium ... Ive used Firefox but have had problems on some sites, and Chrome worked better. Sorry to lose it.

Update manager issue (Chrome related) [SOLVED]

This cropped up a couple days ago. I'm attaching a screenshot...

My system is a HP Stream with 32 bit LM 17.3 installed.

I'm using Chrome browser which may be running out of updates and tripped things up?

Thanks

Jim

Re: How do I install Broadcom drivers offline with terminal?

Good morning warfrat

I'm a little unsure and dont want to make a mistake, you want me to run these two commands now?

One right after the other?

sudo mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt

egrep -w 'RELEASE|CODENAME|EDITION|DESKTOP' /mnt/etc/linuxmint/info
