Re: RAM upgrade?

Ok...in the bios I have five tabs, information, main, security, boot and exit. In the Main tab it states System memory: 634 KB Extended memory: 3070 MB Video Memory: [256Mb] (Apparently I can adjust the frame buffer size of the video memory, but I dont think that is something that I should mess with)

Re: Steam problems

I ended up following https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkeVg-B_ZDg after doing a fresh install of LM19 and I got it to work for me.

I am curious though...what is the difference between the flatpack installation and the i386 that are on the repositories?

Re: Buy Computer with Linux Mint installed

Not pre-installed with mint but...https://system76.com/ sells laptops and desktops made just for Linux (pre-installed with POP_OS or Ubuntu 18.04). You can also select the hardware that you want in the computer (most of the ones I have looked at use 8th gen intel cpu and nvidia 1060-1080 gpu's.
