Re: Dual boot installation

Did you try sudo os-prober ? (lists foreign OSs); are you seeing the grub menu? No, I had not tried it, but I have now, and here is the output: /dev/sda11:Solus (4.0):Solus:linux /dev/sda2@/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi:Windows Boot Manager:Windows:efi The root for Solus was defined as sda11 duri...

Re: Dual boot installation

I installed Solus today on my test machine where there is Win 8.1 and Linux Mint 19.1. I basically created a new partition, sda11, that I designated root (/) during the installation. I designated Mint's /home directory as home for Solus - Solus itself left the "format" box unticked. Note: I used a d...

Re: Dual boot installation

Good stuff, Flemur, just what I needed. Tomorrow I am going to install Solus on my test machine, where I have Mint in dual boot with Win 8.1. The latter is a "left-over", I don't use it anymore. I do want to keep Mint as the main distro on that machine, so will follow your instructions when I instal...

Re: Dual boot installation

But isn't the writing, i.e. altering, by the 2 OS'es of the other's files the type of activity that causes problems for each other? No. That would happen if you used the same username on both OSs. Making a different usename for each OS means they won't interfere with each other - that's the point o...

Re: Dual boot installation

I set Mint and Manjaro on the same disk with same user name different partitions, and still both run fine without conflicts. That is different from what we are discussing here. You have Mint and Majaro installed as 2 separate OS'es AND with a different /home directory each on a different partition....

Re: Dual boot installation

You are right. Especially .config directory of both can conflict. You can have separate user names in solus and mint so that there won't be any conflict. So, you confirm what Flemur says. And for my complete understanding: if in /home e.g. a library component is changed by Solus, it won't result in...

Re: Dual boot installation

You know what you would be writing, so will keep write in control. There won't be any simultaneous writes from both os, so it's going to be all right. I know what I would be writing in personal data files (xlsx, docx, pdf, etc.) but a /home directory contains other types of files as well, and it is...

Re: Dual boot installation

Thanks for your reply, Flemur. You could use the same partition but make a different username: then you'd have /home/user1 and /home/user2 ; both users should be ID 1000, so you'll be able to read/write each other's files (I think). But isn't the writing, i.e. altering, by the 2 OS'es of the other's...

Re: Dual boot installation

If you have an efi partition mount|grep efi that's where grub resides So that means that if I do a manual partitioning for Solus, I can use Mint's EFI partition, right? BTW, the output of mount|grep efi is: efivarfs on /sys/firmware/efi/efivars type efivarfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime) /dev/n...

Dual boot installation

I would like to install Solus as dual boot on my computer that currently has Mint installed. I do not have Windows installed anymore :-)) I would like to get some advice as to how to do this best. I have a 128 SSD and a 1 TB HDD. I have my root (/) on the SSD, as well as the /boot/efi partitions, I ...

Re: No arrows on scrollbar

@jelabarre59: just to confirm that this works in Mint 19.1 XFCE, and in Firefox 67.

Re: Cannot install LM 19.1, blocked by AntiX

I would reinstall antiX and (manually) re-partition the drive in the process. I would split the partitions into two: #1 - antiX - 10 GB #2 - Linux Mint - the rest of the drive (approx 21 GB) I only need 1 OS. AntiX has been fine, except for an annoying scrolling issue while browsing that I can't ge...

Re: Cannot install LM 19.1, blocked by AntiX

Have you thought about booting the install media, clicing on menu - all and clicking on gparted and deleting the AntiX partition? That will give you the space needed to install Mint. Of course, make sure you've backed up whatever is important to you. Yes, I have tried that, but the problem is that ...

Re: Cannot install LM 19.1, blocked by AntiX

That's correct no less than 1GB RAM and 15GB of disk. Since you are running out of space on disk, that means you are installing "alongside" AntiX and not "over" Antix. I always use the "Something Else" install option, to ensure it sets up according to need and not according to defaults. Sure, but l...

Re: Cannot install LM 19.1, blocked by AntiX

Anti-X is a small distribution and apparently it is small enough to fit on the (apparently) 32GB drive. The drive really is 32 GB. Even if you dod overwrite Anti-X, there still would not be enough room for a usable Mint install on that drive. You're going to need a hardware upgrade. The recommended...

Re: Cannot install LM 19.1, blocked by AntiX

I just checked the specs on your machine and the smallest HD that was installed was 250GiB. https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/pd100796 Apparently, Windows is still on that HD. Not true. Even on the link you provided they show a 32 GB and 64 GB possibility. Furthermore, if you check the inx...
