Re: Some questions about Linux Mint and Windows fast boot.

If you're going to mount any of the NTFS partitions in Linux then it's not safe to enable fast boot in Windows and hibernation in either operating system because of how open file system handles and such get hibernated along with everything else.

Re: Updating networked machines from master

A Release/InRelease file is only needed if you want to sign your repository. If you add the --allow-unauthenticated parameter to apt you can use your local repository without it. Since you control what goes into that repository that's ok, just don't use that option with remote repositories. If you n...

If I remove the adobe-flashplugin do I need to do anything with the compatibility library for the DRM content?
Just get rid of it all, no reason to keep it around:

Re: Tessa Update Manager recommends strange upgrades

The purpose of mintdrivers is to let you install a different driver, not to make you feel good about an already installed one. So I don't have a problem with that error message (it's not perfect but good enough, doesn't warrant a patch). Sorry, this reply is above my head, but I’m glad it’s not a m...

Re: Updating networked machines from master

I guess I'm going to have to do a fresh install to get them. I had synaptic set to delete after installation. :( That's a bit extreme, no? If you do a fresh install you'll have to download the updates again, anyway. Just change the setting and update one of your client machines and pull the cache f...

Re: Updating networked machines from master

I opened /var/cache/apt/archives and there's nothing in there. Is Mint storing them somewhere else? Mint is automatically deleting them after a few days (see /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/90mintsystem) but if you installed updates recently there should be something there. Unless you configured Synaptic to de...

Create a local repository on the master and make that the only repository configured on the other machines. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Personal

Re: Design discussion on future Mint Update Manager

In the kernels UI, for installed but not-active kernels would a 'use this kernel on next reboot' or similar button tool be feasible using grub-reboot under the hood? Use case would be rolling back from a freshly installed kernel should it be problematic. grub-reboot doesn't work on LVM or raid devi...

Re: SHA256 Sum Verification Problems

Instead of the whole cygwin you can also simply download the Windows version of GPG, shift+right click your download folder and select to open a command/powershell prompt and then run the gpg commands (and for the hash check you can use Window's built-in CertUtil, but you're past that step). Maybe t...

Re: Breaking: Update Manager in 19.2 will no longer feature a protective level system

Well, that will still not stop some LM 19.2 users from not applying security updates and other bug fixes for their own reasons or "demons". Which is perfectly fine, I've got no problem at all with that. I'm not your mother, I'm not telling you what to do, I'm just trying to give you the tools to li...

Re: Breaking: Update Manager in 19.2 will no longer feature a protective level system

Shouldn't the right solution be to reclassify those updates, instead of getting rid of update classifications altogether.? No, for all the other reasons given in this thread, which all come down to: Not applying security updates and other bug fixes is bad practice. I know that in response you'll te...
