I had 48 of them to remove. It took several cups of coffee. :mrgreen:
48? Pity you couldn't sell them.
LOL, so true.

Re: Can One Uninstall Multiple Kernels?

I've marked this thread SOLVED. Always appreciated! :D You bet. I know it helps when I do a search for a solution. You have to uninstall them one at a time in Mint 18. It only takes a couple of minutes each. I had 48 of them to remove. It took several cups of coffee. :mrgreen: I just remembered tha...

Re: Can One Uninstall Multiple Kernels?

Thank you for the replies. I haven't upgraded since 18.3 is working fine but maybe I'll have to do that soon. Again, thanks.

Re: Can One Uninstall Multiple Kernels?

I have Mint Cinnamon 18.3 64-bit. I can go to Update manager > View > Linux kernels where I can select them but there doesn't appear to be any 'apply' option. Maybe I need to upgrade to 19.xx for that. Thanks for the direction.

Can One Uninstall Multiple Kernels? [SOLVED]

I have been updating my system regularly and now I have a good number of old Linux Kernels that aren't needed. I had thought there was a way to uninstall a handful of them at once to avoid the long process of taking them out one at a time. Can that be done and if so, how do I go about it?

Thanks.

Re: (Solved) Very Slow Boot

I am also preparing three old Toshibas to donate and they have the same graphic card. I had a boot time of 5:30 on the first one I set up and this thread was recommended to me by karichen. After applying this fix, the boot time dropped to 1:05. Am I pleased? Yeah! I'll be certain to do the other two...

Re: Correct Long Boot Time On Old Laptop? [SOLVED]

Hello rgand, I am happy for you that a solution could be found so quickly. And the funny thing is, that the two mentioned Dell Inspirons have exactly the same graphic card as you and needed the same option for grub. :D Thanks, again. That was convenient, wasn't it? I guess my newer ASUS will still ...

Re: Correct Long Boot Time On Old Laptop?

Damn, Karl. That really did the trick. Boot time now is 1 min 5 sec. What an outstanding fix.

Many thanks,

Correct Long Boot Time On Old Laptop? [SOLVED]

Hello rgand, I'm glad to hear that :) But the long boot seems not to be right, maybe it can be an issue with the graphics, which maybe can be solved with adding an option to grub. In the last time there were two cases with old Dell Inspirons 1525 with boot times from 7 and 8 minutes, which can be d...

Re: What Version To Install On Older Laptop? [SOLVED]

I installed Linux Lite 4.8 on the oldest and weakest laptop and it worked great! I'll be putting that on the others as well. It takes 45 seconds longer to boot up but that's not that much of a big deal doming from 4:45.

Thanks for the suggestion, HAWR.

Re: What Version To Install On Older Laptop? [SOLVED]

Hello rgand, I have another suggestion that I like quite well, reminds me more of Mint and could be a good fit for your hardware: Linux Lite. You can have a look at it and maybe try it out: https://www.linuxliteos.com/download.php For the live system, you need as user name: ubuntu (no password) I f...

Re: What Version To Install On Older Laptop? [SOLVED]

Just a quick update. Bodhi Linux does work well on old laptops with minimal resources. It's not a substitute for Mint, though. Boy am I spoiled! At least I can get a Linux OS on those old machines to make them usable for someone. I like that. Again, thanks for the help and especially the link provid...

Re: What Version To Install On Older Laptop?

The Bodhi Linux seems to work fine. I may try something else on one of the other laptops but at least this has done the trick for now.

Many thanks to all who have made suggestions and helped me get a good working version of Linux on the old laptop.

Re: What Version To Install On Older Laptop?

I have the Bodhi Linux on a live boot flashdrive and will install from that to see how it works. It ran on the laptop last night but I couldn't figure out how to install from that boot. I came online again with this computer and read the Easy Linux Tips Project ro figure that out. Now I'm armed with...

Thanks for all the good input, everyone. I'll look into an SSD if Pjotr's tip on the lightweight Bodhi Linux doesn't work out. I am downloading that right now. Will report back on what happens with it. Also possibly memory if need be but this thing may be maxed out already. I haven't opened it to ch...

Re: What Version To Install On Older Laptop?

I did install it. I know that a live boot isn't the same for performance. Thanks for the tip but this laptop is just minimal. We'll see how Mate works.

Re: What Version To Install On Older Laptop?

I tried Xfce and although it worked, the computer spent a lot of time processing things very, very slowly. I clicked on the update manager and it took a full minute for it to open. Then it failed to install the updates. I tried a couple system settings with similar sluggishness. I'll try Mate next. ...
