Re: 20 (but really any Linux) sometimes on shutdown, it reboots

thought it might be a result of an update - yesterday it was(that is, shutting down after update and it spontaneously rebooted), but today, not. So, still open... :( Someone suggested that next shutdown after a reboot would cause it, but, nope. (UEFI/GPT) (latest BIOS for T530 - 2.77) (no WOL) - EDI...

Re: Can anyone recommend me what is a good robust android emulator option for linux mint?

I have no idea what you mean by android emulator. I use android on my phones. mostly pie. afaik it was not designed to run on a laptop - different cpu, chipset, etc. Why would you want an android os on your laptop? linux was designed for it. android is very narrowly tailored for a phone's chipset on...

Re: How add win10 to mixed ssd w/o screwing up boot...

that's a great solution - just make prober not executable. nice! but I had already found grub customizer had been put into software so I installed it from there.
Thanks though!
(Fred never had a chance to offer a solution. I found a solution too quickly.)

Marked solved! :mrgreen:

Re: How add win10 to mixed ssd w/o screwing up boot...

:) !!! oldfred on ubuntu forum had offered to look at things and while I was prepping info for him I stumbled on an answer: The trick is to NEVER use the entry in the bootup grub menu to boot to windows - IT WILL HOSE THINGS PERMANENTLY. When I want to boot to either windows, interrupt boot/boot ord...

Re: How add win10 to mixed ssd w/o screwing up boot...

Yes, I agree it is probably stored in memory, which is why I have pointedly been powering off, power on, choose target to boot to... while having this prob, to try to get around it. HOWEVER, (Ubuntu) (grub) boot menu is using that menu pointer to a windows logon as a target, rather than as a pointer...

Re: How add win10 to mixed ssd w/o screwing up boot...

or alternately, simply edit BIOS boot order... HOWEVER... eg If I have Mint and win8.1 and add win10, that will alter the boot order in the BIOS to put "windows boot manager" on top. This is good because for the first few boots it needs to get back in to the win that's being installed. when it is in...

Re: How add win10 to mixed ssd w/o screwing up boot...

Nope, it wouldn't boot windows right. would take 3 or 4 different tries. Fall back to before changes.

Re: How add win10 to mixed ssd w/o screwing up boot...

since I had a working win 8.1 it asked me if I wanted to update 8.1 or "something else" (microsoft's sense of the english language did not imply this but this was in fact what it was). Mint, on the other hand, bless them, just says "something else"! I chose the "something else" and that did allow me...

Re: How clone main ssd to larger ssd and resize partitions?

a) I don't use hybrid. I delete hiberfil.

b) I restored back to just after clone (unmodified), booted to win 8.1, used an old Easeus Partition Master to move the 2 NTFS partitions and then backed it up with clonezilla no problems. Gparted is contraindicated.

Re: How clone main ssd to larger ssd and resize partitions?

Well it would have been nice... The clone went fine and fast and Gparted happily moved a couple partitions but clonezilla refused to back it up even with manually doing fsck, or telling it to auto fsck. just said it (sda4, the first one I moved) was scheduled for a check and stopped. (I only moved 2...

Yep - shouldn't be a problem. I would strongly suggest making a backup of the drive to be cloned first.

Re: How clone main ssd to larger ssd and resize partitions?

Thanks, so, yeah, I can clone it straight with clonezilla, but then I can get away with using a bootable Gparted to resize/move both Mint and windows partitions??????? Thanks!

Re: 20 sometimes on shutdown, it reboots

nope.

then I thought it might be the rj45 (LAN) - stopped it a few times (I unplugged rj45 before shutdown) then recurred.

then I thought it might be USB - stopped it once but then recurred.

summary : I get this randomly on any Linux.

Re: 20Cinn: HP laserjet M254dw color: easy install and postscript

looking for this?

Code: Select all

I tried attaching the full systemctl but even half of it (20KB) is too large for this forum.
