Re: What happened? Site was GONE.

Occasionally when I try to login I get an error window which says that Origin is blocking the site. If I disable the add-on uBlock Origin I can login and there is no difficulty if I then enable it. Why this doesn't happen every time, I have no idea. So, why should it happen at all?

Because I could not resolve the problem of "frozen" unbootable computer returning an error that dmraid45 module could not be found, I did a completely new install and then sat back and did some thinking, to try and isolate the error and, at the same time, figure out, how to successfully mount my USB...

Re: Automatic display of all hard drives on Desktop...

Thank you AndyMH for spotting the error I missed in fstab. I subsequently amended it but still couldn't boot the computer into LMDE-3. Just got the same dmraid45 module error.
In desperation, I did a complete reinstall. See the following post.
