Re: Just need a bit more help please :)

From what I was able to extract from your OP is your running a desktop PC with multi drives in it and have lots of stuff you don't want to lose. You appear to know how to add a SSD or HDD to the system so why not Buy a new SSD and disconnect all other drives having only the New SSD in it. Install l...

Re: partition doesn't look good

Basically what I said is the same as Andy said up above. Nothing particularly wrong with that, except that /home is in a logical partition inside the extended partition. With a legacy format drive you can have a max of four primary partitions or three primary and one extended partition, so you could...

Re: partition doesn't look good

except that /home is in a logical partition inside the extended partition. Thats exactly what i meant. Is it possible to change that in a primary partition? So only sda1 and sda2 exist? I now see sd5 has got 11gb used. I didn't put more then 1mb of data on that! So the idea of deleting the sda5 + s...

Re: Really weird (scary) message ("Enter password to unlock your login keyring"))

The window's title is : " Unlock Login Keyring " It asks me to <bold font> : " Enter password to unlock your login keyring " From what i am reading in your OP you are asking about Keyring and that article explains a bit into keyring. You can also do a search on keyring to find more info on keyring.

Re: Minecraft wont open and I dont know what to do with a .tar.gz file

EUREKA!!! I scaled back to 19.3 and it worked, untill I added the amdgpu drivers. I upgraded to 20 and it worked, untill I added the amdgpu drivers. I am goingto guess that something in the amdgpu drivers isn't firing correctly. It is also crapping out my boot sequence. I get all kinds of lags and ...

It appears you dont have the log file in the opt folder so I assume it isn't making it far enough to log anything.

I just said forget this and wiped my drive, started over with just Mint 20. So far it has been a nightmar...
