Re: Can't boot after changing UUID of '/' and '/boot' partitions.

It will not even boot into a recovery mode. It chokes with, error: no such device: fd7d1eb0-731b-4c56-8f60-fe5924842a22 error: no such partition. error: you need to load the kernel first. Whatever Grub boot loader got installed, that would seem to indicate that it is passing control to some Grub bo...

Re: Can't boot after changing UUID of '/' and '/boot' partitions.

It looks like your / , /boot , and /home are on /dev/nvme0n1 that is an MBR (Legacy) disk. Recheck your /etc/fstab file to see if the / , /boot , and /home partition UUID match what they are currently. Post results of these two commands: cat /etc/fstab blkid Hi, I've run this to check that each UUI...

Re: Can't boot after changing UUID of '/' and '/boot' partitions.

I did wonder about the FAT partition that got set up with the original Mint20 install. This partition is mounted at /boot/efi. This UEFI stuff is still a bit mysterious to me, but try this to show the grub.cfg file that is (should be?) there: sudo cat `sudo find /boot/efi -iname grub.cfg` Those are...

Check if your partitions are labeled, if not make them.
And afterwords run this command:

Code: Select all

sudo update-initramfs -uk all ; update-grub
Yas, all the partitions have labels, but still no joy with this.

Re: Can't boot after changing UUID of '/' and '/boot' partitions.

error: no such device: fd7d1eb0-731b-4c56-8f60-fe5924842a22 error: no such partition. error: you need to load the kernel first. I grep'd every file in /boot and in /etc and there is no 'fd7d1eb0-731b-4c56-8f60-fe5924842a22' string anywhere. So where does it come from? If you have EFI booting, check...

[SOLVED] (Not really) Can't boot after changing UUID of '/' and '/boot' partitions.

This is turning into a serious waste of time. I had Mint19 on my old computer. Bought a new MB with a larger 500G NVM, so I installed Mint20 fresh on it. But I wanted to also put the old Mint19 setup onto the NVM and allow dual boot, so I can keep my old settings etc until I get everything updated. ...

Re: Mount of old Home/bin gives permission denied to scripts.

Ahhh, yes, now I see it. Too much information sometimes, not enough knowledge on which is important. Interesting failure of the system to reflect 'reality'. The permissions seen by 'ls -l' reflect the ACL of the files/dir, but do not seem to change with the disk permissions. So explaining my confusi...

[Solved] Mount of old Home/bin gives permission denied to scripts.

I installed mint 19.3 on a new SSD, I have made a mount point /media/mint17/ for my old 'home' and added the path '/media/mint17/$USER/bin' to PATH. However my scripts do not run... eg I have a simple script 'infosys' that will not run, eg, So from the bin directory itself. (/media/mint17/bill/bin)....
