ufw allow - what is the "most generous notation" ?

Hi, Short question: if I do ufw allow from 1.2.3.4 and ufw allow to 1.2.3.4 , is that not the most generous way of allowing all possible kinds of communications on all possible ports between 1.2.3.4. and the device running the firewall? Long question: This is not really a Mint question but it is a u...

Hopping up the kernel family ladder - things to consider before leaping?

Hello! TLDR: Is there anything risk but stability when switching kernel families? Say I upgrade from 4.4 to 4.13 and reboot. Might I find that e.g. Thunderbird or Sublime Text needs a new package, which when I install will get in the way of me moving back to 4.4 if 4.13 proves unstable? The long ver...

Re: Samba throughput slow from client end when mounted through Nemo

You can change the SMB dialect that nemo uses: Edit smb.conf: Right under the workgroup = WORKGROUP line add this one: client max protocol = SMB3 But that comes at a price. SMB1 and share "discovery" ( finding samba hosts by going to Network in Nemo ) are linked. You cannot have one without the oth...

No colors in terminal when using SSH

I use the standard Gnome Terminal provided by Mint. The terminal window is colored (prompts and various output) when using it locally on my own file system. But when I SSH into my Freenas(FreeBSD) the entire terminal window becomes monochrome. Using e.g. ls -G I can introduce some color into the out...

Re: PCIe PCI EXPRESS USB3 DELOCK 89315 where are the drivers and how to install

I installed this card same card a few days ago in Mint 18.1 and it was recognized without me doing anything, and it gives 3.0 speeds. Curiously, my network card seemed to hop from en7s1 to en8s1 in the process.

It did break Manjaro though, I suspect, since I can't boot into that OS anymore. :shock:

Network interface changed from enp7s1 to enp8s1 ?

So, a couple of days ago I added a PCIe card to get an internal USB3.0 header. Today I notice that my Ethernet interface has changed from enp7s1 to enp8s1. Was this due to the PCIe card, or might something else be afoot in my computer?

[SOLVED] Why this long delay between GRUB selection and mintSystem started/rsyslogd start ?

EDIT SOLVED: I had installed Debian alongside and that messed up the referencing of the shared swap partition. It was referenced in fstab by the UUID visible in boot.log, but after installing Debian that UUID was no longer valid. I confirmed because the new UUID was listed in the Debian fstab. So I...

[SOLVED] Re: Just curious: was a firmware update just pulled?

I discovered the problem: the 4th and 5th levels had been unticked and non-security updates were simply not showing in the list. A bit strange since I know for a fact that I have not been in that dialog ticking or un-ticking for many months or changed update policy. Oh well, issue resolved anyway. T...

[SOLVED] Just curious: was a firmware update just pulled?

In my Update Manager I have for a few weeks seen one level 4 update (xorg-server) and two level 5 updates (Linux firmware and Linux kernel). Today the Linux firmware is not there anymore and I have not installed it knowingly, neither does it show up the history. Was the Linux firmware update pulled?

Hello ! After a few hours of troubleshooting I have realised that the openvpn package update released today - on my computer (mint 18.1 cinnamon) - causes a 10 minute delay when rebooting/shutting down. While troubleshooting I timed it 6+ times and the delay was to the second 10 minutes from hitting...
