Re: Removing a Kernel with Broken Package...UGH

I updated to 4.15.0-58 manually, and when boot I am having to manually select 58 vs 54. 58 works as far as I can tell. Also notice 19.2 is available but until I can clear up the problem with 47 I am not sure of doing the update to 19.2. As to what is being held this is the list: ed@ed-GB-BXi3-5010 ~...

Re: Is it Grub2 or something else.

Thanks for sticking with me on this. I had forgotten about Timeshift. So I backed up my home directory on a memory stick. Then went back to Timeshift before I did the security updates. I let it process then, tried to use "sudo" apt-get update The system failed to accept my password, the one I used t...

Re: Is it Grub2 or something else.

OK nothing jumps out as wrong there. Lets take a look at what it's producing. This should bbe the working grub.cfg cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg This should be the one failing due to the syntax error /boot/grub/grub.cfg.new Have you made any changes to the contents of /etc/grub.d? Run ls /etc/grub.d && c...

What are Proper Steps to "own" hard drives.

This may be long in the tooth, but it will help understand why following steps is important to me. I had Linux Mint 19 running on a 500 gb hard drive, and decided to speed things up with a 500gb SSD. Read some posting about how easy it would be, so I did a backup and timeshift on another drive. Boot...

Re: How to copy files from one hard drive to another? SOLVED

And yet there is another way with Linux Mint 19: 1. Use Files and open the first location with the folder containing the files. 2. Right click with the mouse and select "Open as root" it will ask you for your password. 3. Use a second instance of Files and locate where you want to copy the files ove...
