Re: Linux is not booting on my PC after a couple days of use

This contains the boot files. Clarification. An EFI partition contains only boot loaders. The rest of the boot files, including grub.cfg and the kernels, are in the /boot directory of the root/system partition. Also, as I'm sure you know but for the OP's benefit, in the typical dual boot scenario w...

Re: Linux is not booting on my PC after a couple days of use

sacole bone , reviewing the thread, I realize we never figured out why you filled the root/system partition in the first place. Shouldn't have happened in a few days, even saving Timeshift snapshots on a modestly-sized root partition. So, either you installed a lot of Flatpak apps and/or you fiddle...

Re: Linux is not booting on my PC after a couple days of use

Linux Mint makes a swap file by default, so a swap partition is not necessary unless you plan on hibernating your computer (hibernating is different from putting it to sleep). I saw this tutorial for the instalation and he talks about the swap etc, I'm going to send it so you can actually see what ...

Scratch the word baseline. Create a snapshot, or let Timeshift do so per a schedule.
Thanks for the help! I'm going to try it and put "[SOLVED]" on the title if everything works out, if not, i'll ask again for help. Thanks again and excuse me if anything. :wink:

Re: Linux is not booting on my PC after a couple days of use

Yes. If you open the File Folders app on the live session, you can see your hard drive and the files on it. You can access Timeshift snapshot on the hard drive to restore your system. You can use GParted (which comes installed on the Mint live session) to make changes to partitions on the hard driv...

Re: Linux is not booting on my PC after a couple days of use

No need to reinstall. Boot a live session (same thing as you used to install). Open Timeshift. Delete all the snapshots on the internal drive. Reboot the installed system. Set up some other location to save snapshots. Create a baseline snapshot. Carry on. That's great news! But, would you be able t...

Re: Linux is not booting on my PC after a couple days of use

I don't know if this is enough, I think the only thing to do is to uninstall linux and reinstall again, and I won't lose to much either, I've being using for a week total. I was interested in seeing how you set up the partitions. You can actually set up and install Mint in one large root partition....

Re: Linux is not booting on my PC after a couple days of use

A 30GB root partition is not really a big root partition. Also Timeshift can be turned off rather than trying to uninstall it. If you have your installation usb/dvd, please boot to a live session of Mint and supply us with information about your hardware by entering this command in a terminal: inxi...

Hey guys, So, I'm a newbie on linux mint and linux in general, but i've succesfully done a dual boot with my windows 10 and was using both normally, then I ran with some problems with the native program that does a backup of your sistem (I forgot the name of it), as a newbie, i've put it on my /root...
