Re: How to install GPG2?

Considering there is no gpg2 (and gpg version 2.x is preinstalled on LM19.1), certainly it would be easier if you explained what problem you are actually trying to solve.

Re: Is it possible to make an 'all programs' folder auto populate like Windows?

Yes, but as far as I recall such a "view" is what the All Programs folder in Win2k's start menu was all about though. Of course the menu editor is your "weapon" of choice if you only want to move a select few applications into a specific category. As for applications you do not want to see at all, I...

Re: Is it possible to make an 'all programs' folder auto populate like Windows?

Sure it's possible in principle, but it depends on your desktop environment/menu choice. E.g. Linux Mint MATE edition comes with a menu that has an "All" category by default.

Re: File system check of the root filesystem failed

By the way, submitting 'fsck -?' in BusyBox displays the 'fsck' help, but '-f' is not listed in that help. How did you know about '-f'? man for the manual of any command. man fsck will tell you that fsck is just a wrapper, the actual command being run here is fsck.ext4 , and that has the -f option.

Re: use newer ubuntu 18.10 as base?

Re: 'Final stable' version?

If 19.3 won't be till (Dec?) I'll go ahead and get things installed, especially since 17 support is about to end in the spring. I have the time now, but may not in the spring. Winter is my slow time for work. Did you post that a few months late? :confused: LM17 support ended 3 days ago by the way.

Well, you'll have to load them one way or another to convert them, anyway. Otherwise you can find any number of online converters via your favourite search engine.

Re: How long should a WPA password be?

I had to type it by hand for an Ipad in the house because I couldn't connect a USB to it. Onscreen keyboard is a pain in the ass to switch between characters , numbers and symbols. Really find Ipad to be useless. Definitely. Another option in such a case is to set a simple 1 character password on t...

Yeah, there are certain rules governing that. Do run the command again now though to get rid of that linux-kvm-headers-4.15.0-1031 package.

It's easier with a password generator. But copying it between devices in one way or another, certainly, I'm not going to type it by hand.

Re: Interest: If ever there was reason to uninstall mono, this is it

What gets me about malware discussions in relation to linux is that too many people who ought to know better claim there is little to no chance of linux malware to the point of it having immunity, yet there is a plethora of linux malware out there. Desktop users have been fortunate only in that lin...

Re: Interest: If ever there was reason to uninstall mono, this is it

Removing mono reduces the potential attack surface area. Naturally, but it's marginal. Even if there was a lot of malware compiled with mono, which I strongly doubt, the real problem is the user executing the malware in the first place. Whether you run a malicious mono application or even just a ma...

Does Mono by itself run .exe files if there is no Wine installed?
Sure, assuming the .exe is compiled with Mono. Just like your system would run any other supported malicious code that you download and execute.

Re: Interest: If ever there was reason to uninstall mono, this is it

It remains a terrible argument. With that reasoning you gotta uninstall Python, too (among many other things).

Re: Default kernel broken after kvm installed

As you can see from the output, it's still finding the -kvm kernel even though I uninstalled the package. You uninstalled only the meta package, not the kernel itself. This should do the trick (while not booted to that kernel): apt purge --autoremove Otherwise to just specifically purge that kernel...
