Re: EFI Boot on 32 bit device

I don't think any 32 bit processor can handle UEFI but I may be wrong. Are you sure you're running an Atom Z2760 processor and not a Snapdragon processor which is 64 bit?

Please open a terminal and run the following command:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
Copy the results and post them here to confirm your info.

Re: Full Install to USB Drive: Four Options

Another option for a portable full install instead of a flash drive, is an M2 card in a case. Prices for 256GB M2 SATA cards have dropped as well as the price for the cases. They're not much larger than a flash drive and are much more reliable and long lasting. A true SSD not much larger than a flas...

Re: When opening a folder as root, Nemo always opens in icon mode

@rene - I don't have a ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata folder. Maybe that's the problem.

When opening a folder as root, Nemo always opens in icon mode

This has been a major annoyance for me for years. In normal mode, my preferences are set to list mode. Whenever I open a folder as root, Nemo defaults to icon mode and even if I go into preferences and change it to list mode, Nemo disregards the setting. Does anyone have a solution other than going ...

Re: Bash script to build .iso failing

Kadaitcha Man, thanks for the reply. I've double checked the location several times. I even copied the file to a different location and used the actual location in the script instead of using the variable.

@rene - that took me to the login and desktop. A big thank you. Now I'll edit fstab so it has the correct UUID.

Re: How to edit fstab from a tty1 prompt

@rene thanks for the effort but it didn't work. The UUID has changed and I get the following message. :mount: /: can't find UUID=xxxxx-xxx-xxxx-xxxxx

Is there a way to mount a partition by identifying the UUID? I got the new id by running blkid.

Re: How to edit fstab from a tty1 prompt

Thanks for the reply, Rick. I'm the only user on this machine. For some reason, the entire partition is now read only so can't edit anything. I'm running 19.3 and set a root password so I may try logging into tty1 as root and changing permissions. Note: I found that I can boot from a legacy USB, but...
