Re: Mint 20.1. Restart and sudo reboot not working after new instal

The BIOS is set to ‘legacy’ which is not a search term in the installation guide so I was not helped there. Hi Michaelkhowe and welcome to the forums. There are so many different terms used that it's difficult to be specific, but in Section 4 it says "The Linux Mint ISO can be booted both in E...

Any Ideas why LM19.3 is not working?

Kind Regards HPD
Hi Robotechie and welcome to the forums.

I'm guessing but I think it's a PAE problem.

Don't scare people like that! I thought that some new serial issue or linux virus appeared!

Re: How to upgrade from 19.3, migration

Hi pegasis You seem to be trying to upgrade from 19.3 to 20 without losing anything. If I’m right, that can’t be guaranteed. 19 to 20 is major change in the OS and not all software that works in 19 can be guaranteed to work in 20. (Most does though) Sorry, I have little idea about what you’re trying...

Re: Error on Boot

I have just purchased a new HP Laptop ... it now works great. ... How do I fix it? hi nonno13 As it's new, have you applied any BIOS updates? If not, then it may be worth doing so, but if all 'works great' then I'd suggest that there's nothing to fix. Linux moans, but doesn't blow its' own trumpet ...

So, do you think that running it without "sudo" would not have made that problem? Hi janise, I'm not mad keen on quoting myself, but hey ho, Rather beyond me, but could the ‘sudo’ have taken you somewhere you didn’t need to be? That's all I could think of, as I had no problems with the fu...

Re: My error messages

Hi linuxforbeginners You don’t have a problem. Linux is very good at reporting ‘problems’ but not how it ‘solved’ them. It’s ‘verbose’. As you say I was ignoring it because the system would run anyway. Then that’s the right thing to do. However, you also say I cannot choose the right propietary driv...
