have to ask why the devs didn't wait for unbuntu 18.04.3 to be released before building this?
What is in Ubuntu 18.04.3 that is of importance?

Re: Tina is the TOP news item in the final issue of Linux Journal

If that is really the "final issue" of Linux Journal, that is sad!!!! It is sad, because that is my main source of Linux news. If you check the home page, it says: IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM LINUX JOURNAL, LLC: On August 7, 2019, Linux Journal shut its doors for good. All staff were laid off and the com...

Re: [Solved] Kernel 4.15.0-55 installed but cannot be activated

Why, they are not contradicting anything I said, they're just talking about the installer, and I agree with them that the choice to make there is not to use swap, I've said that all along. You only add swap after you rebooted into your installed system. I think you misunderstood...Debian will find ...

I believe you may have misunderstood something for I have seen no such statement in the thread (and I just checked again), or maybe you were thinking of a different thread. Anyway, doesn't really matter, you'll figure it out. ;) Here: I hadn't tried recently, so I booted the Debian 9.3 multiarch ne...

Re: [Solved] Kernel 4.15.0-55 installed but cannot be activated

Actually I wasn't thinking of modifying the installer, just of using the manual partitioning option in the installer and either not selecting the swap partition there or choosing not to format it (I don't recall if the latter option exists in the vanilla Debian installer). For your research: https:...

Re: Kernel 4.15.0-55 installed but cannot be activated

Sounds like it formats it (runs mkswap on it), so changing that option in the installer would probably prevent that. An experienced user at the Debian forum actually advised me to file a bug report for that. I wonder what I could be doing now if I had the skills to modify the ISO installer myself. ...

Re: Kernel 4.15.0-55 installed but cannot be activated

I'm surprised you didn't run into the same situation before already then. And you will again on those other operating systems when you update their kernels. Running update-grub on the Mint system every time you update the kernel on one of the others will take care of it though.... I did experience ...

Re: Kernel 4.15.0-55 installed but cannot be activated

.... Typically this happens in a dual boot situation and you've installed another boot manager with the other system (bad idea), so any changes in your Mint OS cannot affect the boot configuration since it is controlled by the other OS. If this is your situation and you want Mint to provide the boo...

Version 4.15.0-54 is the currently running Kernel on my machine.

But I have restarted the machine a few times already since the fir...

Re: Clean install or not?

... Conventional wisdom says that a "clean install" is to be preferred. Back up my personal data files. Install (eg) LM 19.1, then install all additional programs afresh, then modify LM19 to taste. Restore all my data files. A lot of work... I do prefer the clean install myself. That is why it has ...

Re: Why is it more secure to be asked to enter a few characters from your password?

...When they do ask for specific characters, how do they then check without storing all the characters "in plain text"? It's done using client-side scripts. Your new password is validated for existence of required character(s) before getting passed to the back-end of the bank's website. The encrypt...

Re: I have finally stopped distro hopping!

My method of distro-hopping is not what I would consider waste of time because I do it mainly for the purpose of learning more about Linux. Even though I have tried more than 20 distros so far, I only keep a maximum of 7 distros active on a multiboot setup. From there I switch between distros very 1...
