That output says it has an ARM processor. Mint doesn't support ARM, so no.
Rats, that's what I thought. Too bad as it's a great little SBC. I guess I'll stick with Mint on my Mac Mini :)

Mint and Odriod XU4 [Solved]

I have an Odroid XU4 running Ubuntu-Mate and I was wondering if there is a version of Mint that could be installed. The specs are: Processor: Samsung Exynos5422 ARM® Cortex™-A15 Quad 2.0GHz/Cortex™-A7 Quad 1.4GHz Memory: 2Gbyte LPDDR3 RAM PoP (750Mhz, 12GB/s memory bandwidth, 2x32bit bus) 3D Acceler...

Re: Install on iMac

I ran into the same problem with my MacMini. I could never get them to connect to Mint. I resorted to purchasing a Logitech K400+ Bluetooth Keyboard. I plugged in the USB Bluetooth dongle/adapter and the Logitech keyboard worked on first boot without any configuration. Been using it for almost a yea...

Re: What am i doing wrong with my router?

On my router control centre I have a Traffic Control section where I am able to set the guaranteed minimum and maximum band width in KB/s for each of the devices that's connected either by wired or Wi-Fi connection. Wondering if you're able to do this with your router.

Re: Which VPN

I have a paid subscription to ExpressVPN. I have it setup on my Synology router so that all my devices that connect via wired or wifi are able to connect via VPN. This includes my TV, printers, computers and iOS devices. Been using this setup for almost a year now and I'm very pleased.

Re: Poll: are forums password requirements too complicated?

I'm a little late to the discussion as I just returned from England. Anyway, online security is up to the individual, and I think that passwords are a key part of that security. I have over 170 unique passwords being managed with Dashlane. It may be a pain, but anyone who is serous about their onlin...

Re: rEFIt boot error sudendly happened, reason ??

While I'm no expert on this, but have you tried to boot the Mac using the "Option" key. When you hear the chime on the reboot, quickly press and hold down the option key. This will normally take you to the Mac Boot menu. You should see three device options to boot from: MacOS - EFI Boot - Recovery D...

Re: Password Managers, What do You Use?

I use Dashlane, and have been for quite a while now. It syncs my passwords with all my devices, which includes my iPhone X, iPad, MacOS machines, and Linux Mint. Tons of features which includes warnings if it detects if any of your info has appeared on the darkweb. Personally I like it's auto loggin...

Re: Mesa Transitional Dummy Package

Instead of listing each package separately, they bundle them up into one list package (the dummy package). Those MESA packages are important for your graphics hardware. With that said, there is a possibility to break your graphics too. Please be prudent and have a good backup before you install tho...
