Re: shared folders

i uninstalled from inside LM using package manager and/or software manager. I really don't know cos I removed alot of stuff to make room. I'm not sure if this is why my shared folder is not working any more but I presume. I still have shared folder shortcut on my dekstop in LM but it's not actually ...

shared folders

please help or point me to the right direction. I had a problem with free space under v18.2 XFCE and uninstalled a bunch of stuff and now I see that I lost visibility to my shared folder on host machine (win7). I'm using LM in Virtual Box. I tried that "insert guest additions..." and when I run comm...

Kernel Updates: on LM 17.3, I have 3.19.0-32 kernel.

Only users of Linux Mint 17.x, who run a de-supported kernel series like e.g. 3.19.0-xx, will have to decide whether they switch to the old LTS kernel series 3.13.0 or whether they should upgrade to the newer LTS kernel series 4.4.0-xx. I'm it this camp with my LM 17.3. I have 3.19.0-32 kernel. If ...

Re: Trying to update kernel on LM 17.3 get warning it can't be authenticated

I apologize. I'm in a hurry so I didn't realize I didn't write these details as in other thread I was writing. I was trying to save time, that's why I wanted to keep this 17.3 system cos I have a ton of stuff inside I didn't want to waste time installing and setting up on a new system. I guess I'll ...

Re: Trying to update kernel on LM 17.3 get warning it can't be authenticated

I don't understand what you mean.
I have Win7 64bit in which I have installed oracle VirtualBox and run a few LMs. one of them is this 17.3 (the most important one to me) and that one is giving me these problems with kernel. both pics are taken while booting LM machine.

Re: Trying to update kernel on LM 17.3 get warning it can't be authenticated

sorry I messed up the numbers :( .

I have in my LM 17.3 kernel 3.19.0-32 and that one works regardless the VB version. I'm currently on v5.2.6, the latest one that was out yesterday.

If I try 3.13.0-139 I get this:
3.13.0-139.jpg
If I try 4.4.0-109 I get this:
4.4.0-109.jpg

Re: Trying to update kernel on LM 17.3 get warning it can't be authenticated

I understand that part, and I do it like that but kernel 3.13.x doesn't have spectre/meltdown patch AFAIK?
that was my goal, otherwise I wouldn't change kernel.

Re: Trying to update kernel on LM 17.3 get warning it can't be authenticated

VB 5.0.16 is 2 years old; nobody cares about it. In case you should follow the advice (as given in the screenshot) they will tell you there the same. And if you do not answer the question, why you think, that you have to use this old piece - as you did here not answer my question -, support will qu...

BTW what is the option to upgrade to LM 18.3 on the bottom of view tab in LM 18.1/18.2 (not sure if I have it in LM 17.3)? Any benefits or pote...

I checked. That was the reason and now I'm worried cos I was connected to that serves for a long time. It was sweden. Now picked 2 servers in Holland and no warning. Is it possible something "bad" was slipped in my system using those "unsafe" servers :( ? Are they really unsafe, I mean is that possi...

Re: fixing Linux Mint 18.3 for Meltdown and Spectre

what about mate v17.x? is there going to be an update or I have to upgrade to v18.x first? Is that even possible or I should start again. I'm using it in oracle VM.
thanks.
