Re: Did Mint brick my mobo?

Thanks for all the imput, I just thought it odd that it would freeze every time I tried to boot mint before finally dying. Regardless I have since booted into my mint 18 install and it went straight in without a hitch no issue. I would not have thought of the 580 as a shiny new GPU as it has been ou...

[Solved] Did Mint brick my mobo?

I upgraded my GPU to a RX 580. I changed changed and updated the drivers etc in windows fine and ran it a few weeks like that.

Re: Trying to install steam.

I had a gander and this is what I saw:

Either I have done it wrong or it appears I have no broken packages. I am starting to wonder if my mint has somehow gone all screwy.

Re: Trying to install steam.

Hi,

Those two commands did not work for me I just get an error message that asks me to press enter and when I do it just cycles around to the error again in some kind of loop.

It is very similar to the original error message with the usual message "you have held broken packages"

Re: Suitable Wifi Devices

Hi all, The gigabyte PCI card arrived yesterday and I was able to try it today and as as stated in the place where I found it, this does just work out of the box with no fiddling required (intel chipset) . The signal strength is not as strong as the cheaper USB adapter that apparently should work bu...

I just get an error message saying 'unknown option 1' So I guess that means there is nothing I can do? I did try 1, L, and I just in case there was some mistake due to unclear fonts. The L did do something but it looks more like a shortened s on the terminal whereas what you have pasted looks more l...

Suitable Wifi Devices

Hi, After a horrid time with Ubuntu in 2006 and then 2011 I have decided to try Linux again with Mint in 2017. I have no choice but to use wifi as a way to connect to the web, which I am currently doing so via a TP-link Archer T4U. Their Linux support is pretty thin on the ground and only provide a ...
