Re: Clean up old kernels

remove != purge so you may simply end up with these kernels in the residual config section in synaptic (waiting for a "complete removal", aka purge) before free space in /boot is realized... Hmmm, doesn't seem to impact /boot. But good catch I'll check /usr/src, looks like there are some ...

He said if you want your stuff to be secure, write your own encryption algorithm. It doesn't have to be good or complex, it only needs to be unique. That's bull and proven NOT to work! :shock: And besides, the claim that "every" modern encryption scheme out there was "invented by the...

Re: Viruses on Linux Mint

Agree with the part that executable (Windows) files doesn't work on Linux. But what happens if you send an infected .exe file from your Linux machine to a Windows user?? Such worry only makes sense if you happen to be the IT guy in a company and both the file server which happens to be a Linux mach...

Re: Mint 18: Kernel updates only in GUI Update Manager?

BTW, if you have multiple systems but you don't want to install a management framework (... I agree, it's a bit of an "overkill" ...) you could use something like "Cluster SSH". You'd perform 1 x SSH login to multiple systems at once and then issue the same command to them at the...

Re: Mint 18: Kernel updates only in GUI Update Manager?

Re: How to "dist-upgrade" the kernel in LM18?

Curious question (and yes, I'm just curious), why do some people avoid GUI solutions that Mint offers like those solutions have leprosy? GUI's are a lie, they're just front-ends to the shell. Through the shell, I gain sudo. Through sudo, I gain power. Through power, I gain root. Through root, my ch...

Re: Mint 18: Kernel updates only in GUI Update Manager?

But, question for scorp123, as I'm not working in linux right now, are you running "sudo apt-get install linux-base linux-etc" as a list of items? Or, it seems like LM is now using just "apt"?? Question is what is the exact commands you are using? I use ansible at home and puppe...

Re: Mint 18: Kernel updates only in GUI Update Manager?

The result was that "apt-get" never pulled in the latest kernel. Names of the packages: linux-base linux-firmware linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic These packages always point to the latest version in the repository (depends on what repositories you have configured +...

Re: Mint 18: Kernel updates only in GUI Update Manager?

Call me old school if you like, but I'm the kind of guy who likes doing many things from the console. Yup. Same. I almost always run my updates using apt-get from the console... I let ansible do that for me. :twisted: So for me it is very important that *all* updates are applied via shell commands....

I have no doubt whatsoever this is going to bring me some flak, but that's ok because I've got broad shoulders and I wouldn't suggest this for use in an exposed environment anyhow...
