Re: Fortunes

Yes my day has been chaotic, in fact the last month has.

And yes, I did have scrambled eggs for breakfast.

But I still do not understand the fortune.

I guess there is no fix for this.
I have searched, & searched...

'fortunes-off' should be removed from the repositories & the 'fortune' program!

VirtualBox Quit Working

I guess the solution I need is what kernel worked with vbox 5.1.34 ? :?

Then I can revert to that kernel and vboxdrv will be happy. :)

I am running Linux Mint 18.2, what I am content with. :wink:
kernel 4.15.0-24

Re: <SOLVED> Virtualbox failing to install on kernel 4.13.0-39-generic 64 bits

I do not like the vbox 5.2 interface.

vbox 5.1.34 was working fine in my mint 18.2 until an update.
I would like to undo that kernel update
looks like I will have to reinstall the OS for a third time this month & turn off ALL updating

so much for virtualization... :?

Re: Gnome-Boxes vs. Virtualbox - opinions/comments?

I prefer VirtualBox 5.1.34, the 'new' 5.2 is too Windows 10 like & will not use current theme settings. That & I just don't like the 'new' interface. Gnome Boxes...
