Re: Linux Mint Forums Back After Double Attack

I hate to throw a spanner in the works, but I hope you release that the new password procedure on this forum results in less secure passwords. This is because special characters are no longer allowed in passwords, and that increases the probability that a password will be cracked. I personally use ...

Re: Linux Mint Forums Back After Double Attack

I didn't anticipate this happening but it did. It's been 3+ weeks since I logged into the forum. I did change my password, I was logged in from another computer. I thought that I had written the changed password my un/pw list I keep beneath my new laptop but apparently that password was the one I ch...

Re: Linux Mint Forums Back After Double Attack

I abhor short, unique 'tlm123', easy to type-in passwords. Should I replace my 15+ character password or presume that I am okay now. Maybe change to a 25+ character password? I never connect to the Internet using IoT devices because I think they are too easy to be exploited. I have 5 PC's, each havi...

SOLVED: Why does LM 11 pkg mgr require password after each

Until installation of Linux MInt 15 Olivia that problem persisted each time I wanted to install more than one package I was required to re-enter my password. I can't understand why another person did not have this problem as I did. I no longer use version 11, but use version 15 and this problem does...

Re: I just installed LM15 cinnamon. I now have no sound

Asking more questions to us newbies is no help. tbrown... indicates in 2nd sentence that sound worked in Linux Mint 13, but now that LM 15 is installed no sound. I have the same problem only I went from Linux Mint 11 32-bit to Linux Mint 15 64-bit. I had sound in Linux Mint 11, but not now with Linu...

Re: Update Kernel

Heya, if it solved your problem, could you mark this thread as solved? Thanks I have a question for you since you seem to be more detailed than 'm-p'. If I customize my kernel for my particular hardware, when LM notifies me that there is kernel update, will I need to customize the updated kernel? I...

Re: New branded Linux Mint mini computer

Great! A new product/appliance with LM installed and tested. I perused the blog in its entirety, unlike many. Its obvious due to the repetitive questions that were answered in earlier posts to the blog. Laziness? I am 'old school'. I read through the blog to determine if any questions that I may hav...
