Re: Help needed! Linux Mint 18.3 Recover Boot/Data via Live CD

I need to backup my existing files, maybe using the live CD. I won't mind if my Linux won't work as before, just to save some important project files from desktop to my USB. I think you're already stating the answer yourself. :) Boot to the Live CD. Use the File Browser to navigate to your importan...

The HEAnet server does appear to be temporarily down. I would try again later, or use one of the other mirrors.

The server is timing out overall, I'm sure temporarily. Just wait a bit, or the other mirrors should have the same.

Part of the Documentation includes Tutorials, which I'd like to think would have several ideas.

Also in the Documentation is Local-machine Solutions, which does include Minikube.

I wouldn't expect much success with WINE for any version of Safari or iTunes produced in the past 10+ years.

Re: How to backup Linux Mint 19.1 in a dual boot system?

Almost all report that the Clonezilla menus are incomprehensible. I've not read the reviews, but I would say "incomprehensible" is a bit exaggerated. Is it a pretty user interface? Not in the least. It's all text-based, but it does the job. Frankly, I find myself just hitting Enter, as most of the ...

+1 for Clonezilla Live. It makes an image of the entire hard drive. If the hard drive ever fails, I just install a new one, and apply the latest image to it.

Re: [SOLVED] Mint 19.1 - Problems with System Clock

I find it strange that Linux Mint is designed to operate alongside Windows in an adjacent partition, same disk, however Linus Mint is supplied "as is" with UTC time that upsets the bios clock for Windows. It's strange if that's what you're used to. But that's actually the way most operating systems...

Re: Is there any way of checking a mint installation?

I do concede that I've not had the opportunity to attempt this. Speaking for myself, if I were presented the same scenario as the OP, and it resulted in a "catastrophically unstable" system, I'd lean towards a fresh install.

Re: Is there any way of checking a mint installation?

I was just wondering if I could correct this installation. I don't know that. In a scenario where an OS drive was taken from one make/model of PC and put into another different make/model PC, I wouldn't even know where to begin. And even if someone told me what things to do, I'd always wonder if th...

Re: ITunes

If you go with the WINE option, it looks like you're not going to have a great user experience with any version of iTunes that's come out in the past 10 years or so.

I'd imagine the VM option would be your best choice.

The Linux Mint Installation Guide and "How to verify ISO images" both have details.

If you're having specific issues, you'd get the most help by posting a new topic specific to them. :)
