Re: 20.1 Cinn / 20 Mate : winetricks gets checksum error when installing directx

Yep, and somewhere I ran into the statement not to try to add directx to wine any more as it includes it and would likely hose things. And of course no documentation on any of this. :) I suspect it will be fully sorted in 5 years or so. Be well.

Somebody at Mint as screwed up the archives so the checksums no longer match what is there.

Re: 20.1 Cinn winetricks gets checksum error when installing directx

thanks for your time. I just temporarily installed 20 Mate and got the same result. I guess Mint's files are hosed. The message I get is: sha256sum mismatch! Rename /home/kris/.cache/winetricks/directx9/directx_feb2010_redist.exe and try again. No, I think Playonlinux is more limited. I would not ex...

20.1 Cinn / 20 Mate : winetricks gets checksum error when installing directx

I had 20.1 Cinnamon installed briefly last night. I had spent a bit of time getting FF to work with all my tabs and then shifted to seeing if I could get my brokerage software to run under wine. With software Mgr, I installed wine 503. I installed winetrix and then tried to add the usual stuff "...

20.1 Cinn, live boot, wine install prob

Downloaded 20.1 Cinnamon a couple days ago. The flash to USB stick via Rufus wouldn't boot. The flash with balenaEtcher did. I boot the stick to Mint. I try to install wine 503. I get "additional software has to be upgraded" (about 50 or so) then "package operation failed - installArc...

Re: Foxclone - linux image backup, restore & clone

Without breaking stuff :wink: I learned that while booting my ASUS motherboard with both the clone and the original drive, the clone did not show up in the boot list. Booting without the original was the fix. Probably the ASUS boot manager does not like seeing two drives with same UUID and does not...

Most of what I've learnt with linux has been the hard way - by breaking stuff :)
yeah, me too. when I think about it... if it works, I don't learn anything. If it doesn't, then I have to start thinking. kicking and screaming all the way... ;)

Re: Foxclone - linux image backup, restore & clone

yes, I have 3 outboard drives for "offsite" backup, but I store the backups in separate folders for each backup app - Macrium, Easeus, Foxclone, Clonezilla, etc etc. can you imagine 20 or 30 backups of all these sprayed on the top level of the directory. I prefer to group them. Much easier...

Re: Foxclone - linux image backup, restore & clone

I create the folder for FoxClone in Advance on the root drive. I name then direct FoxClone to use that Folder. I also used Macrium Reflect previously to FoxClone, so that ASUS_FX705 folder was made by MR. this is a habit that I formed decades ago, because I have used many Image backup utilities, an...

Re: Foxclone - linux image backup, restore & clone

I wanted to put this to a more rigorous test, esp as I have a friend that has a messed up disk and a non-messed up older disk and needs a backup tool. So I used foxclone to backup(of course I paralleled with cz), and then restore my UEFI/GPT mixed linux/win ssd. It is fairly snappy in both direction...

Re: clonezilla has to be booted as legacy

1) why doesn't it boot as uefi? In all likelihood because you downloaded the wrong .iso image. You probably have the stable .iso, but you need the alternative stable .iso. from 4 posts or so back I just downloaded alt stable clonezilla-live-20200703-focal-amd64.iso and put it on with balena bios wi...

Re: clonezilla has to be booted as legacy

part of the problem is that so few folks are using uefi, and also using clonezilla.

Re: clonezilla has to be booted as legacy

yes, alternative stable will boot on uefi IF I create the stick on windows on rufus - - HOWEVER after about a month ago I stopped getting the initial screen. I press enter and it goes. but I don't get the initial screen.

if I create it on linux it doesn't uefi boot but boots fine legacy

Re: clonezilla has to be booted as legacy

never heard of it. I think it was created early this year. I did try it. It did boot uefi. cz vs fc 47gb vs 53gb 16min vs 14min It def is easier to use but I will have to parallel with cz for a while until I see it save me from some disaster. It did allow me to do a gparted and take a screenshot of ...

Re: Foxclone - linux image backup, restore & clone

just learned about this. needed a stick that would boot to uefi - cz won't unless I burn the stick on windows by rufus. This did nicely. Did backup easily. Nicely did gparted, took screenshot of it and copied that over to my Mint 10 (after having Disk mount the partition. I will parallel with clonez...

clonezilla has to be booted as legacy

I am UEFI/GPT even though it (clonezilla) has an efi folder on it. it won't boot as UEFI. I have to set my bios to boot to both uefi and legacy. annoying! This started back when (a few months ago) I first noticed that when I booted into clonezilla, it was no longer showing me the initial flash scree...
