Re: Mint 19.3 boot gets stuck on attached PHY driver after installing Debian Buster

Thank you, I had a look at /etc/network/interfaces, which are quite the same in the two systems. In both of them, /etc/network/interfaces.d/setup contains no subdirectories. To me, the truly puzzling thing is that Mint's booting behavior changed after installing Debian, therefore I have to look for ...

@t42: this is precisely what I did, as I think I mentioned in my previous post. Ipv6 is not the culprit, not this time.

Re: Mint 19.3 boot gets stuck on attached PHY driver after installing Debian Buster

Mint 19.3 boot gets stuck on attached PHY driver after installing Debian Buster [SOLVED]

EDIT after solving. The problem didn't have to do with the network but with the fact that, during installation, I asked Debian to use the swapfile partition already used by Mint. Debian changed the UUID for the partition, and so Mint kept looking for the old UUID partition until timeout. The soluti...

Re: Wifi Keeps Disconnecting

Hi, I had similar problems with my Realtek card and Mint, but with another driver (r8169). I spent a lot of time searching the web and trying to understand. Some people get good results when they unload and reload the module. You might just give it a shot: # modprobe -r r8152 # modprobe r8152 In cas...

Re: Safely Remove USB Drive does not display message

19.3 Mate: no option for either Eject or Safely Remove appears in Caja when I right click on an external USB drive (HDD or SDD). The only option for removal is " Stop ". If I select Stop , no notification appears and so it's anybody's guess when the USB disk can be safely removed. I use Di...

Re: Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

This is an advantage of using "dd", it can run in that minimal environment. Running e2fsck on the backup is required. OK, that's fine. But I think the main arguments stand: a reboot is required and dd also backs up free space, unless one zeroes and uses conv=sparse. I am not trying to say...
