Re: Grub2 Timeout 30 seconds after today's update

Another related mystery. Doing a clean install of Mint 19.1 Cinnamon in UEFI mode using Ext4 for / resulted in no 30 boot delay. After completely updating the system, still no boot delay.

Re: Grub2 Timeout 30 seconds after today's update

What exactly is "sudo sed -i "/recordfail_broken=/{s/1/0/}" /etc/grub.d/00_header"?
I tried it, but no change happened.

Problems with mine too. Has happened before. Usually goes away after a while. You might try clearing Lastpass cache by going to left click icon and choose more options>advanced>clear cache.

Re: UNetbootin Missing In Mint 19?

Yes it was in the Software Manager, but not now. I thought the creator of it would email as to why it was removed, but he has not. Before reading your comment, I downloaded it from his site and tested it. It seems okay. Thanks.

UNetbootin Missing In Mint 19?

My Mint 19 Cinnamon does not have UNetbootin in the Software Manager. Does anyone know why? Does it not support Mint 19?

Same issue here too with Mint 9 Cinnamon 64 bit. I downloaded a new iso and did checksum. I reflashed by UEFI mobo firmware and lots of other "fixes" with no results.

Interestingly, this site indicates that noatime is beneficial for snapshots on Btrfs and recommends adding it.
