Re: Network interface changed from enp7s1 to enp8s1 ?

pastic: to sastisfy my curiosity, would you be so kind as to run "lspci" in a console, and post the output? Thanks. Here you go. Interestingly I find out that my new PCI card for USB3 also has a Firewire controller (the VIA drivers "belong" to the card)? Getting more and more st...

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 It was referenced in fstab by the UUID visible in boot.log, but after installing Debian that UUID was no longer valid.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?

Hi! I am running LAMP locally as a development server on my desktop computer. My router sets the desktop's internal IP to 10.0.0.10. I used to be able to do 10.0.0.10:8080/site-under-development from a smartphone or laptop in order to access the site under development wihtin my LAN (over WiFi). But ...

Re: Apache, PHP on 18.1

Hi! I went through some frustrating moments to get the LAMP components installed and working when I first tried (on 17.3). So I ended up writing a bash script when I got a configuration that worked for me. FWIW, this below is the install script I use whenever I do a fresh install. It currently works...

Re: Openvpn package update caused 10 min shutdown delay

Hi! I was going from openvpn version 2.3.10-1ubuntu2 to 2.3.10-1ubuntu2.1 . But I am not actively using openvpn. I updated both less and openvpn yesterday and more or less immediately I came across the 10-mintue shutdown delay. I had spent the morning repartitioning a disk and installing a 2nd insta...

Re: Openvpn package update caused 10 min shutdown delay

Well, simply because it was only when I rolled back the openvpn update that the problem immediately went away. Had previously rolled back the less update to no effect. But typically, and embarassingly, now that I reinstalled the the openvpn update in question in order to reproduce the problem and pr...

[SOLVED (mistaken about openvpn)] package update caused 10 min shutdown delay

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...
