Re: Boot-repair, rEFInd, Grub... oh my

I'm completely a null in this.
Maybe it is time to write a simple, very detailed manual on this? :)

Re: Live Mint 17.2 (MATE 32-bit) system - error on boot

In Linux Lite Systemback (making live-usb and restoring on some partition) works okay I have seen on my new pc.
So I don't think the problem is Systemback.

Re: Mint 17 won't suspend

Maybe this is of help?? : I have the issue with 'suspend' for example after making a backup with Systemback or sometimes after an update or just like that. Then the whole system is a little out of tune (EH complete problems with switching of Mint etc. in the listing; slow switching off.) Indeed it i...

Re: Live Mint 17.2 (MATE 32-bit) system - error on boot

I have the same and it happens when libgcrypt resume comes along. (startup with nosplash).
I have to move Mint Mate 17 to a new pc (also Asus), but no way. Boot halts.
Very remarkable: with Solydx and PCLinuxOS (other partitions) everything goes fine.... ??

Re: boot-repair

Other 'boot-problem' with Mint 17: New computer. I made a live-usb with systemback, which is a great program, and installed on the new pc on a partition. All fine, but.. Mint 17 halts booting after the Btrfs-test (I did nosplash). It is NOT Systemback. For instance PCLinuxOS is doing super. It addap...

Re: HTPC WOL?

The 'spin down' in 'power management' in MATE made my system unstable concerning HD's and even gave problems with the use of Clonezilla from cd and/or pendrive. I had to search a lot before I found the origin of the problem. (I think some applications don't wait for the spin up, which gives the soft...

Re: Dolphin not working [solved]

What you discribe is a nasty part of Linux.

(For instance and not for discussion because off topic: in Xfce on some distro's my icons on the desktop are jumping all over the place. I'm slowly getting insane off it. No solution. And I don't like the well known work around. :lol: )

Re: New EFI boot manager available: rEFInd

Check the boot device order in your BIOS setup. The rEFInd partition should be before the Windows EFI partition. I'm really dumb in this field. Is it that the 200 MB thing? And how do things go with that 'rEFInd'? Is that an downloadable ISO or what? :) I can't imagine the total proces, let's say. :D

Re: Move Mint 17 from this pc to another

No, neither do I. But it hurts the Ubuntu-side of Linux rather hard. Maybe some-one is willing to look at it. Btw: everything still works with remastersys (also on Mint 17 as far as I can see), but after install of a customsystem the webconnection does not. (I have more Remastersyses here, the lates...

Move Mint 17 from this pc to another

I like to put Mint 17 from this pc to another with different hardware.
Formerly I did it simply via Remastersys, very easy. But it does not work right anymore. It kills my new netconnection.
Has anybody an advice for this? :)

Re: boot problems with linux mint 17 (and clonezilla live)

I don't know what is best. It fits here, I thought? :) The things I wrote I mostly can do in flavours of Linux, but not in Mint I'm afraid. That's why I ask. To spread it all over the place is not my intention. :? I always search 'the fit'. Maybe some-one reads what we write if we keep it active.

Re: Gparted shows 2 unallocated spaces, how can I join them?

Make an ISO of your Mint, produce a livecd/dvd/usb, ajust your harddisk, make a ext3 or ext4 partition plus evt. swap next to Windows and ready. Install the live-medium on the new partition (the way Windows likes; I only use Linux, so I don't know about Grub and Windows). (Problem today is: is it po...
