Re: Run mint as server

Thanks. What about generating IP and giving to others? how is this thing usually done? On your local LAN, find your machine's local ip in a terminal: ip address But, if you want someone outside to access your server, that's a different matter. It'd require some setup on your router, and you'd need ...

Re: Mint 20 with 4.15 kernel

This is just crazy. It's very probably totally and utterly unnecessary for the OP to want a 4.15.x kernel. :shock: Agree! I have many old computers running Linux Mint 20. The oldest one is 14 years old running Linux Mint 20 XFCE. I have many 10-11 year old computers running Linux Mint 20.0 and 20.1...

Re: Mixing two different RAM

Yes, the system will use the weaker hynix timings for both modules. So hynix is weaker one? how much performance will i get overall? around -10% less than what it should have been? Try not to touch the gold pin connectors when handling RAM in future though, hold the RAM by the notched edges only an...
