Re: Suggestion - LinuMint Installer

Dear gm10:
It is nice to know your opinion, but GPT seems to be a good option.
Nevertheless, people may be dual booting with other linux, rather then windows.

Thankyou

Suggestion - LinuMint Installer

Hi I gave a test on the Installer of LinuxMint 19, Cinnamon Version. I hope my points can make a difference for the Linux Mint! I tested within a virtualbox. A. I found this issue: the installer should have 4 partitioning options, along with the current ones: 1. Auto helper for single OS boot 2. Aut...

Re: New external CD drive won't burn a CD

Hi

If you can try with any iso below 700MB size:

Code: Select all

cdrecord -v -sao dev=/dev/sr0 isoimage.iso
The CD should not be mounted, for this command to work.

Why doesnt Mint use a simplified sources.list

Hi

The sources.list of Debian, Devuan and Ubuntu are pretty simple and straight forward.

Why not like:

Code: Select all

deb server/linuxmint sonya main
OR if someone wants a current stable:

Code: Select all

deb server/linuxmint current main
Thankyou

Re: Linux Mint 18 doesnt boot - even no grub or live mode or install option

Considering numerous problems people are facing with Mint 18 (it's inherited from Ubuntu 16.04) on Old computes, I would suggest you are better off with 17.3. Linux mint 17.2 failed with the same error. I think theres some other issue. The laptop startup just hangs up with the usb pen drive blinkin...
