Reinstalled rEFInd after failure, now Linux boot error

rEFInd stopped working (simply didn't show up on boot any more), so I reinstalled it through MacOS. Now the Mac partition works fine, but the Linux side, after decrypting the disk, hangs. It's obviously looking in the wrong place, but I am new to this and have no clue how to address this.

[SOLVED] Specific theme recommendations(no pink!)

I'm coming from Macintosh and I'm looking to set up a theme that is aesthetically pleasing to me. I'm wondering if you can give me a specific recommendation? 1) no pink-pink-pink everywhere: no pink highlights, no pink shadows; 2) not dark/reverse type. Black on white; 3) not high contrast: that's s...

Re: What version of Virtualbox?

Sorry, I thought I was posting in the newbie section. FWIW, I started to post a reply, found my keyboard setup didn’t allow for apostrophes or quotation marks. Set off on internet quest to find solution, which referenced panels/apps that don’t exist on my computer, even though I saw keyboard layouts...

Mac DVD not working

I created a bootable DVD that worked a couple times, but now doesn't: "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." After reinstalling OSX it no longer functioned. I downloaded again, checked MD5, burned another DVD, to no avail. Any ideas?

Trouble with OSX, can’t boot from DVD

I created a boot DVD with which I was able to install Mint 17.3 on a HP mini, and my Mac Mini, both with external Samsung drive. (I chose to replace an existing Ubuntu installation it identified on the Mac Mini, which I believe might have been there at one point, and it wiped out OSX and took over t...

Re: Is there any easy way to set up wifi with 17.2/3?

Take this with a grain of salt since I am no expert . . . Before you get in too deep, I suggest you find out for sure which version of Mint 17.3 you installed. That is, do what Cosmo suggested. With the relatively low processing power of your HP Stream 200-010 Mini Desktop you will probably find th...

Re: Is there any easy way to set up wifi with 17.2/3?

I've just downloaded the current version (which I have no idea how to determine) Open a terminal and enter inxi -Sz and read the output. Or copy and paste it here. Or open the system configuration and look for the system information dialog. Host: HP-32 Kernel: 3.19.0.32-generic x86_64 Desktop: Cinn...

Thanks to both of you. It's shut-off-computer time in Uruguay, but I'll follow up.

Is there any easy way to set up wifi with 17.2/3?

I've just downloaded the current version (which I have no idea how to determine) and installed it on a HP Stream 200-010 Mini Desktop. As far as I can see, connecting to wifi using Network Connections involves considerable technical knowledge (or luck). Isn't there — I believe we're in 2016 and Linu...
